Anybody who wants to run, walk, paddle, swim or cycle for charity – or who accepts a dare to bungee jump, skydive, lose weight or do anything else for charity – can set up their own fundraising blog on our website free of charge – and then encourage friends, family and business colleagues to support their efforts.
It's also a great alternative for people who are celebrating a birthday or getting married and who prefer to help a charity instead of receiving gifts.
Choose any charity that you would like to benefit from your fundraising effots – provided it is a registered South African non-profit.
If the charity of your choice is not yet on our list, let us know and we will contact them with an invitation to register. As soon as they have done so, we will let you know so you can start building your fundraising page. Click here to nominate a charity not on our list.
Once you've set up your page, get the word out to your friends, family, business colleagues and social contacts – if they don't know what you are doing, they can't support you! Use your blog to tell them about your event, your training and your charity of choice. Add pictures of yourself or your cause. Login to your page to update details/photographs as often as you want. Then use the built-in tools to email friends, add your details to Facebook and other networking sites, and ask for support.
Anyone who wants to support you may donate any amount online by credit card, through our SSL secure system, or make a direct deposit into our bank account via EFT or Internet Banking – and leave a message of encouragement as well. We deduct a small processing fee and pay the balance of all the donations you receive to your charity once a month.
