There are two ways to create your online sponsorship page, either with Virgin Money Giving or Just Giving. We recommend using Virgin Money Giving who are completely not-for-profit. Their transaction fees are much lower, and so more of your money comes directly to OCD-UK.
You can personalise your page by adding photos and a personal message, making sure people know what you are doing. Then e-mail your page through to your friends and colleagues. You can even add widgets to your Facebook profile.
Online fundraising pages help you achieve your target amount online! Instead of circulating paper sponsorship forms, and having the hassle of collecting cheque's and cash, you can now do it all online. You will receive notification each time someone sponsors you.
As the money you raise is sent to us automatically, you don’t need to do anything else; even the Gift Aid donations are automatically collected for us. So for ever £10 someone donates, if they declare Gift Aid on their donation, we can claim an additional £2.50.
You can also request hard copy sponsor forms from our office, which we would be delighted to post to you. It is always worth carrying a sponsorship form around with you; you never know when you might bump into an old friend and you can pin them down there and then to sponsor you!
You may also print out a sponsorship form whilst you wait for us to post you copies - PDF (329 kb)

Some people have decided to forsake birthday gifts in aid of OCD-UK, so you could create a birthday celebration fundraising page and ask friends and family to donate to OCD-UK rather than give cards and gifts.
The possibilities are endless, if you have any questions, or need help setting up your fundraising page, don't hesitate to contact the OCD-UK office by emailing us, or calling us on 0845 120 3778.
