Your personal Fundraising site
This is the perfect, organized way you can tell your friends and supporters why you are participating in this event. You actually create your own personal fundraising site. You can post a photo, create your story as to why you are paddling and asking for their help, and give them direct access to make a donation to your efforts, keep track of your donations and even generate a thank you to each supporter.
To do this, just follow the follow instructions:
To login to your personal fundraising page, please visit the www.cedarsdragons.ca homepage. Scroll down a bit and you will see a tab called â€˜paddler loginâ€™. Click on it. It will ask you for your username and password (which you should have received in an email from cedarsdragons when your captain registered you for the event). Once you are in, you will notice two tabs along the top of the page; â€˜personal informationâ€™ and â€˜donationsâ€™ (team captains will also have access to a third tab called â€˜team managementâ€™). Under the â€˜donationsâ€™ tab, you will find â€˜statusâ€™, â€˜add donationsâ€™, tell a friendâ€™, â€˜send thank you notesâ€™ and â€˜edit personal donation pageâ€™.
â€˜personal informationâ€™ – Here you can edit your personal information. This is the information we use to contact you, so please make sure it is correct. If you would like to change your password, you can do it here by deleting the password and typing in what you would like your new password to be.
‘status’ â€“ this is where you will be able to see how much you have raised and how much further you have until your goal. It will also show you your boatâ€™s status in your fundraising efforts as a team. All your donations will be listed on this page (including any new ones from the last time you logged in).
‘add donations’ â€“ if someone wants to make a pledge to you, and you are near a computer, you can add the donation with them using their credit card. The donation will be applied right away and you will be able to see your little boat keep moving along the water towards your indicated goal.
‘tell a friend’ â€“ through this feature, you can send emails out directly from your personal db site to your friends to tell them about this cool fundraiser in which you are involved. Simply add in the email addresses you would like to send to, personalize it with a little message (if you would like) and press send!
‘send thank you notes’ â€“ here you will be able to see who donated to you and send them a thank you note directly through the website by clicking on their name. If you would like, you can even personalize the thank you email by adding a little message of your own to the donor!
‘edit personal donation page’ â€“ this is where you can set up your personal fundraising page. You can enter your fundraising goal (ie$1,000) upload a picture and a little story about yourself (ie. Why you are fundraising, who you are fundraising for, why this means so much to you).
