Adding videos to your page

Adding a video to your Virgin Money Giving page is a fun way to let people know what you’re up to. Why not use a short clip to tell people about your event and why they should sponsor you, explain the great work your charity does or post a thank you message for the donations you’ve received.

We’ve teamed up with YouTube to host videos on Virgin Money Giving so it couldn’t be easier. Simply choose an option below – you can add as many videos as you like in the middle of your page, and one video at a time on the right of your page.
