There are many ways to help raise vita funds to help local people in hardship online:
Online sponsorship pages
If you are taking part in an activity to raise funds for Charity Link, a great way to do so quickly and easily is to set up an online sponsorship / support page.
On the page you log your details, you can include a photo, a message about what you are doing and when and why you have chosen to support Charity Link.
Whilst many people still like to have a sponsorship form to take round with them (please contact us for a copy) by setting up an online page you can easily email the page link around to your contacts, who can then sponsor you there and then. This can be great for a number of reasons:
Supporters pay there and then so you don’t have to worry about going back and collecting the money and then sending the money on to us – the funds come straight to us when they input their payment details.
You can quickly ask for support from numerous people in your address book without needing to call / see them individually.
If you feel uncomfortable asking certain people for sponsorship in person for any reason, this is a very easy way to ask for support for your worthwhile activity. They can then consider your request in their own time.
