Here are some important things to consider before submitting a request to have your fundraiser featured on YouCaring.com.
1. We recommend having at least five pictures and preferably 10 or more on your fundraiser. High-quality, interesting imagery that tells a story can instantly develop understanding, spark compassion and inspire action. Don't forget to refresh your page with new images as your fundraiser gains traction to continue to make your campaign appealing.
2. Videos are impactful, too. Adding a video to your fundraiser is a great way to connect more deeply with your viewers and drive more traction on your fundraiser page.
3. Successful fundraisers describe the situation honestly. Your description should tell the who, what, and why of your fundraiser. Who is the fundraiser for? What are/were they like? What happened? Where is the beneficiary located? How will the funds be used? What is your relation to the beneficiary?
4. We also recommend posting text and picture updates at least once a week.
For context, here are some examples of fundraisers that we've featured in the past:
