doing a challenge?
here's how it works if you're raising sponsorship
1. Decide on your challenge
Whether you yearn to run a half marathon, embark on a 24 knit-athon, or cycle to Morocco, you want to use it to make a good and direct impact.
2. Create your sponsorship page
Sign up and create your own sponsorship page. Here you explain your challenge, set your sponsorship target and track the support you receive. It only takes a couple of minutes to set up.
3. Tell everyone about it
Ask your friends, family and colleagues to sponsor you through your page. Share it by email, through Facebook, Twitter, or simple word of mouth.
4. Get moving
Watch the sponsorship roll in as you prepare for your big challenge and see how many DoActions your friends do for you, and how much CO2 they can save in the process.
5. Good luck!
Give it your all, everyone will be right behind you!
6. Blue Dot rewards
As a wee 'congratulations' and 'thank you' for raising great sponsorship, we'll reward you with Blue Dots - the new social currency for people changing the world. We'll email you your Dots once you've completed your challenge.

Raising sponsorship in a group?
You can each create your own individual accounts and challenges on The DoNation, so that you can see who's sponsored who and which of your group has raised the most, you could even make a competition of it! Make sure you all use the same challenge title though, so that you can find each others pages more easily.
Alternatively, you could sign up with your group's name and create a collective sponsorship page.
