Page Updates is a function on every Givealittle page, and you can think of it like a social media post; once you submit one, they are emailed automatically to all donors who opted in to receive them, and are visible on your page immediately. They are a great way to thank supporters, let them know if something has changed, or tell a cool story that's relevant to your page. We recommend making them regularly while your page is active to keep donors engaged and keep your page interesting!
They aren't limited to text - use photos and videos to bring things to life and connect with your supporters, who can also comment on them.
Anything you like - e.g. Messages of thanks for support so far; An update on your progress; More background information or links to other websites; A request to forward your page URL to their friends (a Page Update gets emailed to people who have already donated, they want you to succeed and will probably be happy to have another way to support you).
The Page Update screen itself is pretty straight forward, you don't have to have an image but we recommend you do - it makes it more interesting and helps tell your story.
You may choose to have minimal text and link to a video update instead.
If you need time to think about it or craft your message you can Save for Later and come back any time.
Once you select Post Update your message will go live on your page and be forwarded to our Helpdesk for moderation and emailing to donors who have subscribed.
