How to share photos and fundraise online
Once you’ve let your creative side go wild in the kitchen, it’s time to start fundraising by sharing your Police-themed cookies with your extended bubble online.
That could be your friends, family, church group or whoever you think might be willing to support you.
Step 1.With your smartphone camera, take a photo or two of your tasty creations.
Step 2. Open your chosen social networking app on your smartphone and add the cookie pics you’d like share.
For extended reach you could post to your Facebook or Instagram profile or for a more personal approach you could utilise Watsapp, FB messenger, Instagram DM’s, email or text messages – you may even like to use a combination of the two?
Step 3. Write a few lines about the fundraiser and how others can sponsor you – see the prepared blurbs below if you get stuck.
Pro tip – Add #BakeForBibles when sharing your baking on Facebook and Instagram so others bakers can see them too!
