JOIN ALLEN'S FAST & FUNDRAISER!
"Joining me on my fast will really propel the mission of this fundraising effort.
Your fast can be for a day, week, etc. Any act in solidarity or just general support is immensely appreciated, and held in a high regard in my heart.
Whether you'd like to join the fast and create a fundraiser, select a non-profit for a birthday fundraiser, or just want to create a personal fundraising initiative to bolster our cause, here are steps to walk you through the process.
These actions go a long way toward our mission of creating a better world for our children."
CREATING A FACEBOOK FUNDRAISER FOR CHILDHOOD FRACTURED
1. Create a fundraiser for Childhood Fractured
Log in to your Facebook account and click “Fundraisers” in the left menu of your news feed.
2. Click "Raise Money"
3. Click “Get Started,” then select “Nonprofit” and search or select “Childhood Fractured.”
4. Set up your fundraiser’s page
Determine your personal fundraising goal as well as an end date for your fundraiser. (For example, you could create a fundraiser that runs through your entire birthday month or through the week of your birthday)
Give your fundraiser a catchy and descriptive title and use your summary to explain why you think your Facebook friends should donate to Childhood Fractured . Make it count! Share why Childhood Fractured’s work matters to you, how Childhood Fractured makes an impact in your life, or how Childhood Fractured accomplishes its mission of fighting for children's rights.
Once you’ve picked out a cover image, click “Get Started” to make your fundraiser’s page available for everyone to see!
5. Spread the word.
Use the search tool to search for the names of friends you think will support your cause. Inviting all of your friends to participate will maximize your outreach — and so will talking about your fundraiser!
Post about your fundraiser on your Facebook and add a personalized note about why Childhood Fractured’s cause is important to you. You can take an extra step by emailing your contacts to notify them about your Facebook Fundraiser, sharing the link to your fundraiser’s page, and asking them to contribute in your honor. You can also reach out to friends over Facebook message. These steps will help increase your fundraiser’s visibility – and attract more donors.
6. Now that you’ve created your fundraiser, keep up the energy by monitoring its activity and sharing updates toward your goal.
Sharing your excitement will encourage people to join your cause. Let your friends know how your fundraiser is going by posting about milestones along the way (“We’ve hit 20 percent of our goal!”). You will be notified when donations and posts are made. Be sure to reply to any posts or comments and like and comment on people’s donation posts to thank them for supporting your fundraiser.
