How do I share my fundraising page on Facebook?
Sharing your fundraising web page on Facebook is a great way to spread the word to more people! It’s easy too.
When you log into your Facebook account, you should see a box that asks “What’s on your mind?”. Simply copy the website link (or ‘URL’) that we sent in your registration email and paste it into this box. That will create an image or ‘preview’ of the link. In the box, write your message in front of the link. Then click ‘post’.
How do I add offline donations to my page?
Please contact the fundraising team for any offline donations.
How do I create or join a team?
When you first register there will be a section called ‘Create your page’. On the bottom of this page there is a section to create or join a team. Just follow the steps and you should be good to go!
If you have already registered, just search for the team. Click on the team's fundraising page and then the yellow 'Join Team' button.
If you are already registered and want to create a brand new team, simply log in to your account, go to your dashboard and then an option will appear to create a team. Simply follow the prompts and you're all set up.
