Before we go any further, I would like to offer our condolences. I am so sorry for your loss. It is very upsetting to hear when somebody passes away due to Alpha-1, what you are doing by setting up a JustGiving page and asking for donations is an amazing thing and we are very grateful.
Please note that the name and information used is in this guide is fictional and is only being used as an example of how a page can be set up.
2. You get to choose part of the web page address, this will be the bit after ‘wwwjustgiving.com/fundraising/’. The box was already filled in for me, but it said (in red) that somebody was already using it. Change the text in the box to something else you would like, if it is available to you, the box below it will go green (like the 2nd image below). You are able to use letters, numbers and a hyphen.
3. The next question should always be ‘No‘ as we do not give gifts to people for helping us as a benefit.
Your page will now be created. While it is ready to be used, it would be a good idea to make it more personal by adding some text.
7. Next you can change the header, the amount of money you are aiming to raise and the main text.
If you have a photograph of the person who has passed away, it could be good to use it. Click on ‘Change image‘. Then follow the instructions.
8. The last thing you need to do is to tell people where the page is. If you want to tell people in Facebook, click on the button ‘Share‘ at the top of the page. If you want to email people a link or use another social media platforms, scroll to the top of the screen and right click in the address bar box (the ‘www.‘ bit), this should select the full address and turn it blue as will as bring up a small menu. Click on ‘copy‘ to copy the address. Once done, you cane ‘paste‘ it where you need it to go.
You are now finished, so can log out of JustGiving.
