Is your birthday coming up? You can now support Rainbow Families by fundraising on Facebook for us.
There are a range of different ways you can support our work just using your Facebook profile.
Facebook Birthday Fundraisers
Facebook gives you the opportunity to create birthday fundraisers, which means you can make your birthday a special one for someone else too. For your birthday, you can ask your friends and family to donate to your fundraiser lieu of gifts.
How to set up your Facebook birthday fundraiser
Around two weeks before your birthday, you will see a message from Facebook in your News Feed giving you the option to create a fundraiser for your birthday. All you need to do is select Rainbow Families Incorporated as your nominated charity.
You can then nominate how much money you would like to raise
Choose an end date for your fundraiser
Your fundraiser will auto-populate with some information about the importance of Rainbow Families’s work. You can either change this or leave it as is.
You are then able to change the image if you would like to or you can leave the pre-populated image as is.
Facebook Charity Fundraisers
You are able to set up a fundraiser on Facebook to support Rainbow Families at any time. All you have to do is simply go to your Facebook page and locate the ‘FUNDRAISER’ button in the menu on the left-hand side of your newsfeed – it is often positioned under the ‘Explore’ sub-heading.
