Talk about your cause

Think about how your charity is changing the world for good!

Help people understand the impact of a donation, by letting them know how their donation will help.

 

Think about your story layout

 

Make sure your page story has sections and is easy to read.

Keep it snappy, and by using your page story toolbar, you can highlight areas and make your story easier to digest.​
