Participants Can Now Fundraise on the go With Mobile App
(January 24, 2013) Registered participants: you can now download the free Fundraise with FriendsTM mobile application on your smartphone or compatible tablet, and immediately fundraise when the time is right for you on any mobile device with the application.
How you communicate with the world around you is changing. So is the way you can fundraise on behalf of the Parkinson’s Unity Walk. From the internet to text messaging to email to video, today’s smartphones are fast becoming the center of our daily interaction with others and the world around us. They’re still called “phones” but we do so much more than make calls when we use this technology.
You’re on the go and so is your network of family, friends and colleagues. You no longer have to wait until you get home to go onto your computer to start your fundraising.
It’s as easy as searching for Fundraise with FriendsTM in your mobile device's designated application store and installing the mobile app on your phone or compatible tablet. Once the application is installed, you will be able to use it to recruit team members, request donations, send reminders and thank donors; communicate via email, text, Facebook or twitter – all from your phone or tablet!
This extra tool will enable you to easily stay in touch with your current donors, and recruit new ones!
