Giving Tuesday December 3
Thank you for being a supporter of Safe+Sound Somerset. Please help raise donations on #GivingTuesday, Dec. 3, by creating a Facebook fundraiser. Facebook has made it easy for you to ask your Facebook friends to help you raise money for Safe+Sound. Best of all, Facebook is waiving fees that day so Safe+Sound will receive all the contributions.
See below for a step-by-step guide with screenshots to help you create a Safe+Sound Fundraiser on your Facebook page. Please set up the fundraiser on either the morning of Dec. 3 or evening of Dec. 2 to take advantage of Facebook’s waiver of fees for #GivingTuesday.
Log onto Facebook and find “Fundraisers” in the left-hand column.
Click on ”Raise Money” and then “Get Started.”
This box will pop up. Click on Nonprofit, and type “Safe+Sound Somerset”
in the search bar. Click on “Safe+Sound Somerset” when it appears in the list.
This box will appear, prompting you to fill in information about your fundraiser.
Select the amount you’d like to raise. Then schedule the fundraiser to run
at least through December 4, so it’s active throughout #GivingTuesday.
Click the Next button in the bottom right corner, and write a personal message to explain
why you support Safe+Sound and would like others to contribute to your fundraiser.
Choose a cover photo. Facebook will likely suggest Safe+Sound’s cover photo.
Invite Friends and Share it on your timeline.
