If you wish to create a central ‘Someone special’ page for a loved one or friend you can follow this step by step process.
From the homepage, select ‘Create a page’ or ‘Start fundraising’. From the four options, select ‘Someone special’.
From here, find out more about what you can do with a ‘Someone special’ page and decide if the page is for you or for someone else. You can now start creating your page.
Provide details of the person the page is being created for. The more information you provide, the more will be shown on the page, if the page is to celebrate someone who is still on a journey or has overcome a difficult time, ensure you have permission from the person you are creating the page for.
Once you have provided the details and clicked 'next', we will do a search to see if any similar pages exist. The results will be displayed on the right hand side of the page. You may click through to see if a page already exists for your someone special. If after reviewing the pages, you want to continue to create a new one, click the 'create a page' button.
If a page already exists for your someone special, you may choose to stop creating your page. From the existing page you can set up a fundraising page or make a donation.
To select your charities, you can use the search function to type in the name of the charity. You can select up to 5 charities. On the right hand side you will see the percentage split of donations, check them each time you add a new charity to make sure the split is as you want it. You can come back and amend the split at a later date from your account.
Once you have selected your charities you will be asked to Sign in or register. Complete your details here and agree to the terms and conditions. If you are creating the page for yourself, the details you have provided for yourself will be pre-populated.
Once registered, you can continue creating your page. You will see the details already provided at the top, check these are correct and amend if required.
Use the space to add information about why the charities selected are important to your someone special. Add a description of why you are creating a page for your someone special and give details about that person.
Once you have created your page you can use the preview button to view it. To put it live you must click on the ‘Publish’ button.
Remember to save the page regularly as the page will time out every 30 minutes.
You will find the page URL in your account. Use the URL to tell people about the hub page and invite them to fundraise.
Friends and family who are already taking on a fundraising event for your someone special will be able to link their fundraising page.
You will be able to amend the page and review people linking to the page from your account.
