How does it work?

It takes as little as 60 seconds to get started – choose a charity to support, set the amount you want to raise, maybe add a photo or two. Next, share your project with family and friends to ask for donations, and you’re good to go!

Why should I fundraise for charity?

  • Charities need our help – fundraising is a great way to make a positive social impact. 
  • On average, you can raise 20 times more by fundraising than just donating.
