Some top tips for Facebook Fundraising, to help you get going on your 1,500 Burpees in August challenge
Make sure the end date of your fundraiser is set to September 4th. Fundraisers on Facebook are automatically set to end after 1 week unless you edit the end date!
These few extra days also gives you time to get those last few donations from friends and family after you’ve completed your burpees.
Update your cover photo to the 1,500 Burpees in August one on the group or on the Barnardos Facebook page or upload one of your own!
If you go to “Edit fundraiser” like above, and on the image click “Edit”, you can select from options of photos from the Barnardos Ireland Facebook page.
Include the challenge title in your fundraiser's name. e.g. “Sarah’s 1,500 Burpees in August Challenge”. You can change this in the “Edit Fundraiser” section of your fundraiser.
