Why is your campaign important?

This is the short description that tells supporters why your campaign goal is important.



How people can help? 

Select the action that best accomplishes your goal, such as a pledge to attend a rally, a petition to a governmental body or a fundraiser for a U.S. 501(c)3 nonprofit.



This will be your first action on the campaign, but you can always add more once your campaign is created.

Once you have your action filled out click, See my campaign. You'll be taken to your campaign page to add a photo and your first post.


Add photo

We recommend uploading a photo that's at least 1000 pixels wide. Google search is a great tool to find a compelling photo for your campaign page. 

Add post 

Posts let your supporters know others should support your campaign. Add a post to your campaign to complete the steps and launch your campaign publicly. 




Launch your campaign

Once you have an action, photo, and post added to your campaign, you're ready for it to be launched and share publicly. Click Launch Campaign, at the top of the campaign page to finalize your campaign. After your campaign is launched, invite your network to support it.
