Frequently Asked Questions

Most donations to your campaign will come from friends and family who want to support you.

If you're raising money for something that matters to you, usually the people in your life will be willing and eager to help! Your first and most important step will be to share your campaign via Facebook, email, letter, or even by text with the important people in your life.

Friends and family who are unable to financially contribute can still help by sharing your campaign on their own social media pages and helping spread the word about what's going on.

  • Sharing your campaign on Facebook can increase donations by 350%. This is usually the #1 way people will find your campaign, skipping this step would be a mistake! If you aren't on Facebook yourself, we strongly suggest asking a friend or family member who is on Facebook to share your campaign for you.
  • Tell your story! People are much more likely to donate to a cause they feel strongly about. Explain why your campaign matters, be up-front! Ask your friends and family to like and share your campaign on social media.

Don't forget to thank people for their support! They're spending hard-earned money to support something that matters to you. Let them know their support is appreciated! It will go a long way towards getting support again in the future.
