JustGiving Guide

Fundraising online couldn't be easier. This year we've made setting up a JustGiving donation page simple.
At registration you will be asked whether you want to fundraise online and through JustGiving, if you want to fundraise online, make sure you select this option! If you didn't do this, you can just log back into your account, go into your profile, scroll to 'My Upcoming Entries' and select 'Setup JustGiving'.
Once registration is complete, you will automatically be directed to fill in your email address to either sign in or create a JustGiving account. 
Enter a Page Title and Story. Make the page title personal. The story can be about the triathlons and fundraising for Restless Development. 
Here's a story we have created for you to use: 
This year I am taking on a really exciting challenge with my school friends, and thousands of others across the country. By swimming, cycling and running with my team and raising money for Restless Development and my school's chosen charity, together we are making a huge impact on the world.
You will be redirected back to your 'receipt' where the link for your child's JustGiving page will appear. Click on the link to be taken you to the JustGiving page. Now you can start fundraising!
Within the fundraiser's page, there will be a link to a team page. This means participants can see their fundraising as a team as well. Please note this may not appear straight away, close down the page and then opening it back up again. You should then see the team page appear within the individual's page. This will only work if a JustGiving page is set up through the Schools Triathlon online account!

Campaign Pages!
We've created campaign pages for each of the triathlons which keep you up to date on targets as well as providing information and stories about Restless Development and why fundraising for us is so important.

From fundraising activities to training hard, make sure you post updates and take lots of photographs to post on your JustGiving page. Sponsors will see all the effort you are putting into the Triathlons. Keeping them engaged means they are more likely to repeat their donations. 
Did you know: Regular updates keep your page looking fresh and give you plenty of opportunities to share it. We've found that you could raise an average of 6% more for every update you make!
How to add an update:
1.Log into your JustGiving account and visit your fundraising page
2. Scroll down to the updates section and type your update in the text box
3. Add a photo (if relevant) and if you'd like to share your update to Facebook, tick the 'Share this to Facebook' button
4. Hit 'Post' - this sends your update in an email to all your supporters who have opted in to hear from you
Did you know: JustGiving pages on average raise 14% more when adding photos compared to those who don't add photos.
