Q: HOW DO I GET INDIVIDUALS AND TEAMS TO JOIN MY EVENT? 

A: Getting people to join your event and inspiring them to fundraise is the key to raising lots of money for charity and having the best event ever. To invite people to join your event, you can either send them a link to your event page using your own email program like Outlook, Gmail, etc., or you can use our INVITE TEAMS TO JOIN EVENT button on your event page, where you can import your contacts and send them an invitation. However you do it, make sure you include a link to your event page and make sure you tell everyone that to join the event, all they need to do is hit the big button that says FUNDRAISE FOR THIS EVENT.

Q: HOW DO I SET UP A TEAM(S) FOR MY EVENT? 

A: Its up to the event organizer if you want to invite people and teams to Join your Event on their own or if you want to set up the Teams in advance and then get everyone to join the existing teams you already set up. If you want to set up the team(s), be sure you’re logged in to your account and then choose the ADD A TEAM ON YOUR OWN button on your event page and you’ll be able to set up the team name, enter info about your team, pick a fundraising goal, and select the charity you’d like the team to raise money for. You can set up as many different teams as you want.

Q: HOW DO I START FUNDRAISING? 

A: If you’re an individual participating in an Event, once you join the Event by clicking on the FUNDRAISE FOR THIS EVENT button, you’ll get your own fundraising page to share with everyone you know. Make your fundraising page compelling with photos/video/text and then bother your friends and enemies at least 2 times and ask them to donate. Be relentless. It’s for a good cause.

Q: WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN “JOIN AS AN INDIVIDUAL” AND “CREATE A NEW TEAM”?

A: If you want to start your own personal fundraiser for the event and choose the charity you want to raise money for, click on “Join as an Individual.” For example, if John wants to start his own individual page, he could title it something like: “John’s Fundraiser.” If you’re putting a team together as a charity team or just a group of friends, choose “Create a New Team.” For example, if your bowl-a-thon team name is Holly Star Lanes, you would select “Create a New Team and then title your team page “Team Holly Star Lanes.”

Q: HOW DO I GET PEOPLE TO JOIN MY TEAM IN AN EVENT? 

A: If you set up a team in an event, you can either use your own email program like Outlook, Gmail, etc. to send a link to your team’s page or you can use the big INVITE TEAM MEMBERS button. Just be sure to tell whomever you send the invitation to that when they get to your page, all they need to do is hit the big JOIN THE TEAM button and they’ll have their own personal fundraising page as part of your team.

Q: HOW DO I JOIN AN EXISTING TEAM IN AN EVENT? 

A: Go to the event page, click the big FUNDRAISE FOR THIS EVENT button and choose “Join an Existing Team.” You can search for the team you’d like to join or choose from any of the Featured Teams. Once you select your Team, you’ll be taken to the Team’s page and all you need to do is hit the JOIN THE TEAM button.
