Personalise your profile
Upload a profile picture to your page so your friends can find you! Snap a selfie, share your story and tell your friends why you’re walking this October for mental health.
Back yourself by making a donation to yourself. You’ll set the bar for how much other people donate, so be generous! Don’t forget every donation gets you closer to unlocking some awesome rewards.
Ask your friends
Don’t be afraid to ask for support. We’ve created a bunch of email templates you can use to ask you friends for support, they’re even personalised just for you! Simply select a template here and forward it to your contacts. Easy peasy! Don’t forget to thank your donors after.
Spread the word
You’re doing something incredible this October, so shout it from the rooftops! People who share their challenge on Facebook raise twice as much, so what are you waiting for? You can share your page to Facebook directly from your dashboard or use our social resources here to tell everyone you’re walking for mental health.
Have you noticed this badge on your fundraising page?
It's your Community Champion badge, and it can be unlocked by making a donation to anyone else taking part in the event!
One Foot Forward is all about coming together to form an incredible community walking in solidarity this October. And what better way to show some love to your community than by helping someone else edge that bit closer to their fundraising goal.
Your badge will be unlocked once you have made a donation. Click here to find someone to support!
