How to make the most of our new mobile optimised fundraising website

QR CodeWe’ve enhanced the Virgin Money Giving website so it’s super easy and fast to make donations from your smartphone. Here’s a simple way you can use it to boost your fundraising by promoting your fundraising or charity page with QR Codes

If you’re making leaflets or putting up posters you could include a QR (Quick Response Code). It can be scanned on a Smartphone and takes the holder of the phone straight to your page – with no need to type your page address.

You might have seen them on billboards, leaflets, or business cards.

All you need to do is generate one with your fundraising or charity Virgin Money Giving page address (which you can do at http://goqr.me/ or http://qrcode.kaywa.com/ and many link shortening tools such as http://goo.gl or http://bit.ly) and add the image of the QR code to all of your promotional materials.

To scan the QR code you friends will need one of the many free barcode scanning apps on their phone such as Red Laser for Android and iPhone

Your friends will now have no excuse – It only takes a couple of minutes to make a donation using a smartphone so if you bump into a friend in the street or down the pub they can do it there and then.

We’d love to see what you do with QR codes and using our new mobile friendly website to collect donations, Let us know by leaving a comment below.
