Let's Get Started

Step 1: Decide How to Help

 You choose what to do. Let your creativity guide you. Create a fundraiser or join an existing one. It only takes a few seconds to start.


Step 2: Share Your Link

Tell your friends and family about why this fundraiser is important for children. Use the shareable link you’re provided. The more people you tell, the quicker you’ll reach your goal.


Step 3: Feel the Love

See who’s supporting your fundraiser through your personal dashboard and keep track of your progress. We’ll send thank you notes, but a personal note from you is always better.
