How to find us on the North Texas Giving Day website
First, go to the Faithful Friend page on the NorthTexasGivingDay.org website using the button below (see, we told you this was going to be easy!):
Click the “FUNdraise” Button
Don’t worry, even though they use the word “Fundraise”, sharing your story doesn’t cost a thing and you don’t have to donate anything in order to share your story!
If you’re on a desktop or laptop computer, click on the big, white, rectangular “FUNDRAISE” button at the top-right of the screen, or click on the big, round, blue button with the white plus symbol about halfway down the page:
If you’re on a mobile phone, click on the big round, blue button with the white plus symbol about halfway down the page:
Create A Profile or Log In
After you click on one of the “Fundraise” buttons, you’ll land on a screen where you can either “Create A Profile” or “Log In”.
Most likely, you’re new to NorthTexasGivingDay.org, and so you’ll need to click the green “CREATE PROFILE” button at the top left of the screen:
Share Your Story
You’re almost there! After you’ve created your profile, you’ll land on the “My FUNdraising Pages” tab, where you can share your story!
Here are a few tips to help you share your story:
- Your story should go in the field labeled “Summary/Personal Appeal”
- The field labeled “URL Link” is where you’ll type a page address you can share. For example, typing “my-faithful-friend-story” within this field will mean that the web address where your story will be found will be “https://www.NorthTexasGivingDay.org/my-faithful-friend-story”.
Think of the URL Link as the street address where your story will live. When someone wants to read your story, they’ll go to this address to find it!
