BIG SLEEP OUT NEWCASTLE - SETTING UP A FUNDRAISING PAGE
Our aim is to raise the money to take 12 rough sleepers off the streets and give them a bed for the month of December.
To help you with your fundraising, we recommend you setup a fundraising page with our partners Golden Giving. This helps your supporters to give easily and directly. When you click on the button below, you'll need to select 'register with us' When you have done that, use the notes below to help you setup your own fundraising page.
'DO YOU WISH YOUR FUNDRAISING PAGE TO BE DISPLAYED WITH MINIMAL WORDING?'
Leave this unselected
We suggest "I'm raising funds to help the homeless." or similar
Put your full name in here
Minimum is £20 - the cost of one night off the street. But why stop there!
Your fundraiser target amount must be entered in pounds and pence.
'FUNDRAISER SHORT DESCRIPTION'
Something like "a 12hr sleep out at the Civic Centre Gardens"
START AND END DATE
1 Dec 2018 to 2 Dec 2018 (if staying overnight) or 1 Dec to 1 Dec if joining us for the day.
'OFFLINE TOTAL AMOUNT'
Leave this set to 0.00
'YOUR PERSONAL MESSAGE'
Include something to tell your donors what you're doing and why you are doing it. This is where you can write your story!
For example: 'I'm sleeping outside overnight to help raise the money to take 12 rough sleepers off the streets and give them a bed for the month of December and would love you to sponsor me."
Add something here to create a website that you can distribute. It needs to be between 2 to 45 characters long, and only contain characters, numbers and the hyphen character. No spaces are allowed. I suggest Name-BigSleepOut eg JoeBloggs-BigSleepOut2018
You can download the event image below to upload as your fundraising picture. Leave the rest blank
We suggest unticking 'Do you wish donors to contact you via email?' but ticking 'Do you wish your supported organisation(s) to contact you?'
Leave this blank - it is not relevant.
After you have completed the above section, scroll back up the page and select the 'themes' tab. Chose 'Homeless' and then click on "Create".
If you are asked 'Are you fundraising for a charity event?', just continue without selecting one.
You should now have your very own fundraising page to distribute to all your friends!
