Are you thinking of taking on a personal challenge: running a marathon, cycling cross country, losing weight or swimming the English channel?! You can use this challenge to raise awareness of children living in poverty, and fundraise for the work of Compassion. All donations will go towards seeing children released from poverty and equipped with the skills for a bright future!

Simply set up your personal fundraising webpage, with customised pictures, blogs, video and details about your event, and then send it to your friends for their support. Your page will accept donations online through a secure interface, and issue the donor with a receipt. Your page will list the details of each donation, including any comments of encouragement you receive from your supporters.

You can update your page at any time to let your supporters know about your preparations and progress. You can also use the Facebook connect function to share your updates on your Facebook page, keeping your friends and family up-to-date about your event, and encouraging others to support as well.
