Birthdays are normally a time to get together and celebrate with friends and family. If you’ve had to cancel your birthday party and won’t be seeing people for a while, how about setting up a Facebook fundraiser instead?
By asking friends and family to donate to Friends of the Earth Scotland for your birthday, you’ll be helping to fund urgent campaigns for a green and just recovery from Coronavirus, a safer climate and less pollution. You’ll also be encouraging meaningful, zero-waste, eco-friendly gifting!
Setting up your birthday fundraiser from your laptop, computer or smartphone is easy – simply follow the steps below.
- Follow this link to the Facebook fundraising page. If you’re using a smartphone, this will take you to the browser version of Facebook – not the app. Just make sure you’re logged into Facebook on your browser too, otherwise the steps below won’t work.
- Friends of the Earth Scotland is automatically selected as your charity of choice. Choose how much you want to raise and when you want the fundraiser to end – we recommend ending it a week after your birthday.
- Click the next button, and enter the name of your fundraiser and why you’re raising money for us. Use some inspiring reasons to encourage your friends and family to donate.
- Click next. Select an image. Done!
