Thanks for joining Democracy Spring! The first step is to set up your personal fundraising page. Simply follow the steps below:
1. Go to www.democracyspring.org and scroll down to the bottom of the page. Click on “account settings”. (If you're not logged in, then log in first).
2. Fill in your personal information.
3. Upload a profile image (it must be perfectly square), choose a headline, and write out why participating in the march or sit-ins is important to you underneath the prompt "Why do you support Democracy Spring?" Creating a short video to appeal to friends and family is also a great idea to make your page more personable. If you go this route, simply copy/paste the YouTube or Vimeo URL into the "Why do you support Democracy Spring?" field and it will automatically generate your video.
4. Set your fundraising goal. Consider setting a higher fundraising goal than the minimum: sometimes a higher goal will prompt bigger donations.
For marchers, the minimum fundraising goal is $30-40 per day, which will help cover essential costs of food, fuel, and support vehicle rentals. We are taking collective responsibility to raise funds so that everyone can attend the march, regardless of their economic means, so regardless of how much you raise, we will support your participation in the campaign.
Once you have set up your fundraising page, share your page on social media and email it to friends and family to help spread the word. To get your personal page link, click on "view your public profile" the bottom of the page.
It should look something like this:
