My Page as an example:
Create your own Walkathon fundraising page
This year we have a fun and personalized way to encourage friends and family to support the Mayer Walkathon by creating your own web page where they can go to donate. You can upload a photo, add a personal message*, and set a fundraising goal. Then follow along to see how much has been donated through your page.
Just follow these easy steps:
Go to the FOM Click & Act page https://www.clickandact.com/org/15298
Click ‘Become a Fundraiser’
Complete the Member Registration and Click & Act will email you a password
To customize your page and set a fundraising target: Login, click ‘My Profile’, then click Friends of Mayer under ‘Organizations That I Support’
Send your page to friends and family by emailing and posting on your social networking sites the following link, with your Username inserted: https://www.clickandact.com/Pages/InsertUsernameHere/15298
Send FOM a message that you’re registered - email Dave Lewin with your Username and your child’s name and classroom
You’re done! Check your page regularly to see how much you’ve raised!
If you have any questions email Dave Lewin (Lewin@StatSpeaking.com)
*Advanced users can even include pictures and video content on their page.
**If you're not interested or able to create a personal page, you can still send friends and family the link to the Walkathon page on the FOM site where they can learn about the event, see photos and a video from last year, and make a donation. http://friendsofmayer.org/Walkathon.html
