Just Giving – Personal Occasion

For this example, we are going to create a page for my next birthday (21 again!).

1. First we need to tell it what we are celebrating.  I have selected ‘someone’s birthday‘.







2.  Since we chose a birthday, we now need to say who’s birthday it is and when it is.






3.  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 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.









4.  The next question should always be ‘No‘ as we do not give gifts to people for helping us as a benefit.







5.  Since this isn’t an event, select ‘No‘.






6.  By all means select either of the options for notification by us, it is your choice.  You do need to tick both of the boxes before clicking on the button ‘Create your page‘.










Your page will now be created which should only take a few moment.  Once it has been created, it will show you your new page with the below image at the top.





While your page is ready to be used, it would be a good idea to make it more personal by adding some text about your event.

7.  Click on the button ‘Personalise‘ at the top of the screen.












8.  A random number will be placed in the ‘fundraising goal’, if you would like to change this to a different amount, now would be a perfect time.  It would also be a good idea to add a photo of yourself.  Click on ‘Change image‘ on the left.








9.  The last bit is to write something.  It doesn’t need to be too long, but if you want to tell people your background and why you are doing it, it may help with getting donations.  Put as little or as much as you would like.  Once you are finished, click on the button ‘Save my story‘.










10.  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 somebody a link or use another social media platform, 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.













Congratulations, you have now setup your own JustGiving page and it is ready for people to see it and start making donations.
