If you are fundraising as a team, you have two options for how you can link your funds together. The first is to create a team page, which will link all of your team members’ individual pages together. The second is to create just one shared page, rather than an individual page for each person, which lists all of your team members’ names on one page. Details on how to set up team or shared pages can be found here.
Once your page is set up, kick-start your fundraising, visit JustGiving’s fundraising hub, which is full of helpful fundraising tips, advice and ideas. If your creative juices aren’t flowing, here is some suggested text from us:
I'm sleeping out on the 6th October, whatever the weather, to help tackle the root causes of youth homelessness. Every year, 83,000 young people find themselves without a place to stay. I’m giving up my bed for one night to make a positive difference to these young people’s lives. Action for Children supports 390,000 children, young people, their families and carers, and last year Byte Night raised over £1.2 million to support this vital work.
A donation of just £5 could pay for a hot meal for a homeless young person. £10 can buy a set of pots and pans to help a formerly homeless young person start to build their own home. By donating £18, you could pay for a warm shower and hygiene kit to help a young person prepare for interviews. Thank you for your support.
If you have any offline fundraising, it’s really easy to update the offline fundraising total on you page and this guide shows you how.
