    • Hi Bartosz,

      Thanks for leaving a comment. A fundraising campaign can run up to 120 days (max) and during this time, you can collect as much donations as you can. Within that period, consistently share your page on Facebook, Twitter or Email, create travel/ fundraising updates for your friends or do offline activities to instantly hit your goal amount.

      Additionally, we have sent you an email for more tips and tricks.

      All the best,

  4. Hello,

    Here seem to be server issues as my campaign page is stalling and not loading, nor is my donation page.

    Please respond ASAP as the campaign has been promoted, and now no one is able to donate to even view the campaign details.

    Please help! 🙁
