Set up an online fundraising page All donations come directly into our bank account and Gift Aid is added automatically. 1) Get started by creating a page associated with the Sleep Out. [top tip: unless you've already created a page for another event or set up a repeat donation, don't press "log-in". Go ahead and fill in your details and you'll be sent a follow-up email asking you to create a password.] Set up a fundraising page 2) Don't forget to personalise your page. We want to make it easy for you, so do call or email to let us know if we can set-up a page for you. Spread the word Tell friends and family what you're doing and why. If you are at a loss for words, use our E-Mail templates to share your online fundraising page, and spread the word on social media. Go to email templates Use social media Like Glass Door on Facebook and mention us in your posts. Find us on Twitter @GlassDoorLondon and tweet about the event with #GlassDoorSleepOut Follow us on Instagram, and add a link in your bio to your fundraising page. Post a photo of you in a sleeping bag. Say thanks and tag friends who have sponsored you. Change your email signature to include the link to your fundraising page. Use photographs and videos to tell your fundraising story. Show people how much effort you are putting into your fundraising and remind them to sponsor you. Use links to the website to show how your sponsorship helps homeless people in London. Edit your fundraising page If you want to update your page, change your target, or add photos, log-in using the link at the bottom of every Glass Door page, navigate back to the bottom of the page and select "my details”. Here is where you upload or change your profile photo. If you want to change the large banner image at the top of the fundraising page or edit anything else (bar the profile photo), then find the link to edit your fundraising page, as detailed in step four of graphic, below. Collecting cash and cheques offline Some of your friends, family and colleagues may prefer to sponsor you offline. Gift Aid is automatically collected from anyone who is eligible and donates via the Glass Door website, but for offline donors, do consider passing on our Gift Aid form so we can collect an additional 25% donation at no cost to the donor. Alternatively, if you are asking a large number of individuals to sponsor you offline, consider downloading and printing our Sponsorship Form. Cheques can be made out to "Glass Door". When you send in a cheque, we will then add it as an "offline donation" on your online fundraising page to help you keep track of your total. Put up a poster Spread the word the traditional way: put up a poster anywhere you can! Download our poster template now. Need more help?
