Once you’re signed up for Trailblaze for Wishes you will be provided with a unique fundraising page. We understand how important it is to be able to tell your ‘WHY’, sharing with your friends, family and colleagues your motivation to fundraise and support granting the wishes of children with critical illnesses.
You will be able to customize your page with your ‘WHY”, a photo or video and a personal ask to your networks to support you.
Personalizing your page (along with making the first donation) goes a long way to smashing your goals—actually, research shows those who donate and personalize their page go on to raise 75% more!
