We are looking for 40 people who will volunteer to try to raise $400 in donations from their friends, family, businesses and colleagues. Getting started is easy:
1. Go to Canada Helps where you will be asked to sign into your account, or if you are a first time user, create a new one.
2. Under Giving Links, click on “Create a Fundraising Page”. Select the “Create Your Fundraiser Now” button on the following page.
3. Search for and select L’Arche Hamilton as the charity you are fundraising for and give your fundraiser a title. (Something as simple as “L’Arche Hamilton’s 40th Anniversary” will do). The type of fundraiser is “Anniversary” and L’Arche Hamilton is the page owner.
4. Select your financial goal (we suggest $400 but choose the amount you think you can raise) and tell people a little bit about why L’Arche Hamilton matters to you personally.
5. You can then share your new page by email, on Facebook, Twitter and more!
6. Your supporters will receive a link directly to your page where they can make a donation securely. You will receive notification of their support so you can show your appreciation to them right away.
7. That’s it. You are now a fundraiser and your support is so very much appreciated.
