The Next Step

You should visit your Champion Center to:

  • Customize your fund page that people will visit to support your fund to enter more details in your story, add a caption to the photo you uploaded, personalize your Guest Book instructions, create and link to Photo Albums of pictures, and so on.
  • Email an appeal for support of your fund to your family and friends. This is made easier by using the Sample Appeal email with suggested content in the Email area of the Champion Center. You can change the Subject line to include your name and something eye-catching as well as customize the content within the email to make it personal.

    You may want to go into your personal Address Book area in this Champion Center and enter email addresses of your family and friends, or upload the contents of another Address Book you maintain to make it even easier to send your appeal for support.
  • Edit settings for your fund and create a personalized Web address to the fund page
