When personalising your moneybox

  • Choose to download a high quality picture that is the most relevant to your collection as possible. High quality photos with bright and powerful images will attract potential contributions. 
  • Take time writing your moneybox description. Keep it simple and to the point but be sure to let people know more about your collection. Be sure to spell check. Use links to your charity page or other references to help other users find what your moneybox is all about.
  • In your moneybox description, don’t forget to ask your potential contributors to share on social media after they have contributed to your moneybox, especially for charities, causes and projects. Your family and friends are the best way to get the word out there and encourage them to share with their friends too!
