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.
