Frequently asked questions
If I already have an account, how do I start my fundraising page?
After clicking the ‘Create a fundraising page’ button, click on ‘please log in’ instead of filling in the fields. Enter your email address and password. You can then set up your fundraising page by filling in the fields.
To access a fundraising page that you have already created, refer to the email that you received when you first created it. Its subject line reads, “Thank you for registering for Spreading Solidarity.” This email contains important instructions for logging into and sharing your page and other useful tips. Save it and keep it handy for easy reference.
Where do I find my personal fundraising page?
After logging into your account, you will have access to your Dashboard. Scroll down until you see a table containing a list of your fundraising page(s). To access a fundraising page, click the red ‘View page’ link that appears next to its listing.
If your page is ‘Active’, it will appear in the ‘Spreading Solidarity – page list’. Use the search function to find your page.
Can I change the content of my fundraising page?
Yes, you can edit your page at any time. Once you are on your fundraising page (see question 2), click the ‘Edit your page’ link in the yellow dashboard.
You can change the content and appearance of your page in several ways. You can alter descriptive text, change the picture and show or hide your financial objective “thermometer” and the honor roll of donors.

How do I share my fundraising page with my friends and family?
