SOME THOUGHTS ON NETWORKING and Fund Raising

We all know people in different niches in Second Life, that’s what makes Relay For Life so successful. If each current team member could add two friends to our team that would raise our team numbers to over 100 people. Ask a friend to join Unmasking A Cure RFL Team. There are so many little things that need to be done, there is a job for everyone. No one has to commit to a huge task if we have willing hands and hearts to put on great events. Currently we have 66 team members on our Relayer Roster. Let’s increase our team size and the hands that help!

Secondly, if each of you were to set up your personal relayer page and added your Convio page you could start now fund raising towards your personal goal. What is your personal goal? Mine is 500.00 USD. I’ve already raised 125.00 of that. So don’t hesitate, ask everyone you know, everyone has talent, time, or treasure to give. Below are instructions on how to use your Team Console Compass and set up your Convio page.

SPREAD HOPE, GO RELAY!

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR TEAM CONSOLE COMPASS AND SETTING UP YOUR CONVIO.

Wear/add your compass. or rez it somewhere.

Touch it and it will take you to your page.

There you can change your language, add your country and time zone.

Please note this is in your SL USER NAME – not your display name.

If you are a survivor or caregiver then you would put that in the drop down; otherwise everything else will be public.

Leave all other things the same as they are.

For now in your convio px number box…Leave it as is.

Now you have an opportunity to tell why you relay. Please take a moment and put it in if you wish this to be publicly known/available.

Submit it and it will update with your information.

Step 2 – CONVIO-(MAKE SURE YOUR CAPTAIN HAS SET UP CONVIO FOR YOUR TEAM FIRST)

Click on the orange DONATE button.

Click SEARCH FOR A TEAM and type in a partial or full team name.

When you see your teams name, click on the TEAM NAME (Not on the donate button) then click Join your team.

Use your SL USER NAME, not your display name and go through each step. This will give you a chance to set your user name and a password…..save these.

You can set it up to the privacy settings that you are comfortable with.

Once done and submitted you will reach terms and agreements ….they are pretty standard.

The next page ….you will be given an option of watching a video (I just x’d out of it) and went right on to my dashboard.

There are all sorts of things that you can do from here….but the one I will point out is to scroll down on the page and click customize your page. At the top of your page is an url with the option to change it….the set of numbers in there comes directly after this:

personal&px=

Copy that numbe, go back to your pocket watch page and put that number in your convio px box. If you check on kiosk….then every kiosk that you rezz ….any donations made by cc will go to your name

You are also able to customize your page…take the time and have fun with it.

Viola you are all done! And ready to fundraise…..READY TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES IN SO MANY!!!!

Many of you have facebook accounts that are rl or friends and family that know little to anything about sl, Once done you can go back to the team convio page and register in convio again with your rl name…..set it all up the way you did first time, but this time with your rl…..you have the option then of utilizing the page that is in your rl name for your different websites, family and friends contacts, etc.
