Step 3

Give your fundraiser and title and tell people why you are raising (figure 3). You can use our suggested language, but a personalized message may reach more people. We included a photographer credit for our suggested cover that photo that you’ll insert in the next step. If you choose not to use the suggested photo please adjust this line accordingly.

Sample Title:
WaterFire Access Program SOS

Sample Message:
Save Our Ship!
Technically it is a pontoon boat, and technically it cannot be saved which is why we need your help!

The WaterFire Access Program gives the elderly and those with mobility issues the opportunity to experience the magic of WaterFire aboard a handicap accessible boat.

In oar-der to keep this free service afloat, I’m helping WaterFire raise funds to purchase, retrofit, and maintain a vessel. Join me! Remember, there is no such thing as a small gift. Thank you!
