How Does This Work
We currently use Just Giving, the worlds leading online fundraising platform. Charities sign up with Just Giving so that fundraisers can raise money for them. Fundraisers, like us, create donation pages to promote and collect donations for their chosen charity. All donation processing is handled by Just Giving and the fundraisers only have to worry about promoting and tracking their progress. The funds raised on Just Giving go directly to the chosen charity.
Besides just promoting our donation links, 1D Fans Gives has several ways we try to raise money. We auction items (most notably, our Custom Bears) on eBay. We, fan artists, and fan crafters sell items with the proceeds being donated via our Just Giving donation links. All these donations can be tracked via the Just Giving donation pages. We want to raise as much money for these charities as we can and we have a proven track record of exceeding our goals for many of the charities we have chosen to support!
