To manage your fundraiser, you need to log into your ammado.com account. If you are setting up a fundraiser for the first time - and did not previously have an ammado account - you should have received an email to confirm your email address. It is important to click the link in this email before you can manage your fundraiser.
When you log into ammado, all of the fundraisers that you moderate are immediately displayed for you to access, manage and promote. Clicking each fundraiser will bring you to the customizable fundraising profile page. Personalising your fundraiser page with details of your challenge or campaign will encourage more donations. ammado also has several useful tools to help you achieve fundraising success!

Your fundraising page is completely under your control and contains lots of ways to share the stories of your adventure and get people excited about donating.
To change an image, click on the image icon in your cover image area. You can then select an image to display on your profile page, an image to display as a cover background and an avatar to represent your fundraiser in our donations widget.
