Make Your Birthday Count!
Did you know that you can set up a fundraiser for your birthday if you have a Facebook account?
Your birthday wish can become a dream come true for a unique family by following these six simple steps:
1 Go to your Facebook account
2 Go to your 'home' page, and look on the left side column. You should see the 'fundraiser' option under "Create" at the bottom. Click on "fundraiser" or Birthday Fundraiser and Facebook will walk you through.
3 When prompted choose Habitat for Humanity® of Rabun County as your selected nonprofit.
4 Set your fundraising goal and time-frame. We've seen many successful fundraisers at $200 or even $500 or more! Set something that you feel good about and see where it goes! You can always raise the amount if you particularly like to challenge your friends.
5 Invite people on your friends' list and engage with them! This is key. Invite, invite, invite! Share often on your timeline: remember that not everyone will see something when you post just once. While some people may be hesitant to invite people on their friends list, remember you're giving them an opportunity to participate in something large and global. No problem if they are unable or unwilling to participate at this time - you've at least extended an invitation.
6 Thank people as they donate and watch numbers go up!
Seriously, these people are donating to Habitat Rabun because of YOU - because they love you, they appreciate you, they think you're the bee's knees (and we do, too!).
And then, have fun!!
