How Sponsored Volunteerism Works...

Step 1:

Create a Fundraiser

Now that you’ve signed up to volunteer with the Red Cross, you should create your personal fundraising page and get sponsored. By entering a few basic details, you'll be ready to go

Step 2:

Ask Friends and Family to Sponsor You

The same way a marathoner gets sponsored for their run, you can get sponsored for the time and energy you're giving to help us install smoke alarms and save lives. A working smoke alarm can double a person’s chance of surviving a home fire.

Step 3:

Share and See Your Impact

As the donations roll in, you can update friends and family on all of the good you're doing. Let them know how many alarms they've sponsored and how many hours you've given. That way, they can watch your impact grow
