Setup your own Fundraising Page
With your very own fundraising page, you can collect donations online - not just at your event! This means that people who can't attend your event can still donate. And it means that you can collect funds before and after the big day!
- Visit www.givealittle.co.nz
- Create your own personalised page by clicking on 'start fundraising'
- Choose a UNICEF project you'd like to fundraise for, e.g. Syria Children's Crisis or General Fund.The money you raise will go towards the project you select
- Personalise your page by uploading photos and adding a bit about yourself
- Share the link to your page on your facebook page, on twitter, add it to your email signature...the more people you tell, the better.
- It's safe and secure for people to donate on your fundraising page.
