As part of our Virtual Cake Stall, we're asking our supporters to fundraise an additional $30 for gifted children. That's the equivalent of a fancy cake!
All you need to do is set up a fundraising page through GiveALittle and you're on your way! Below are some instructions on how to get set up, but if you're ready now - you can head over to givealittle to get started by following this link: https://givealittle.co.nz/cause/2015virtualcakestall
1 When you're on the "New Fundraiser" page, first you will be asked to "Set your fundraiser page link". This will need to be unique, so we suggest using your name or nickname and something to do with our campaign. Eg. jane4giftedcake, jane4gifted, jane4virtualcake
You can do whatever you would like here, but you just have a max of 50 characters.
2 Fundraiser/page title
This bit is a bit longer, but you can make it like your page link. Or for example: Jane fundraising for the Virtual Cake Stall; Jane raising funds for gifted - Virtual Cake Stall. You have a max of 128 Characters for this one.
We're asking you to raise an additional $30 on top of what you've already given - but you can choose whatever target you like. Make sure it's achievable for you but the sky's your limit and gifted children all across New Zealand will benefit from your efforts!
