CREATE YOUR OWN FACEBOOK FUNDRAISER!
You can now create your own fundraiser for Kids Action for Kids on Facebook*. This is a great initiative e.g. to celebrate your Birthday or another great occasion.
Making your own fundraiser is very simple, and the funds you raise are a great contribution to giving more children their life-changing surgery for cleft lip and/or palate.
How do you do it?
Go to facebook.com/kidsactionforkids, click “Fundraisers” in the left side menu, click “+ Raise Money” and follow the instructions you get. Before long you have your own fundraiser for KAFK!
We have also described all the steps in detail below, in case you want to see the whole process and detailed instructions.
Good luck and THANK YOU very much!
*Facebook fundraisers are not available in all countries yet.
Step 1: On Facebook, click ‘Fundraisers’ in the menu on the left hand side.
Step 2: A message like this will appear (within 2 weeks of your birthday date). Click the ‘Select Nonprofit’ button.
Step 3: Search for ‘Kids Action for Kids’ and select it as your nonprofit.
Choose a fundraising goal (for reference, one surgery costs around THB 25,000 / NOK 6,000 / USD 800). We encourage you to be ambitious in your goal!
Select an end date (typically 1-2 weeks is recommended).
You can adjust your goal amount and end date later, if wanted.
