Joining together lots of individuals to fundraise as a team
Often when you have decided to fundraise for a charity, or multiple charities for a very personal reason others want to join you. By creating a team on Just Giving you can group all these efforts together and you can see a grand total of the success of everyone involved. This can be done for one or multiple charities. It’s a great way of celebrating success and showing the impact that many people can have when motivated by a cause or an individual.
