    A new, fun way of online fundraising that anyone can use for any event they're taking part in. This film shows how it can be used for any runner. In essence it's an online sweepstake that anyone can set-up to fundraise for any event or occasion. For example, if you were running the London Marathon, you'd ask friends to guess how long it would take you. Each guess is £3 with between £2.01 and £2.50 (including Gift Aid) going to charity, and 50p going to the prize fund. The person who guesses closest to your marathon time wins the prize fund (the sum total of all the 50p's). Everyone who makes a guess is kept up to date on the progress of their chosen event via Facebook, Twitter and email. The challenge and competition of guessing the result, the ensuing banter and chance to win engages everyone, but the main winner is always the charity. Anything that can be measured can now become a fundraising event using Guess2Give. Whether it's guessing the length of a best-man's speech, the weight of all the fish on a fishing weekend or how far a paper plane will fly. The possibilities are endless and we're looking forward to seeing how inventive people will be. It's a new spin on an age-old idea that charities have been using for years, such as paying to guess the number of sweets in a jar to win the jar of sweets. Guess2Give takes it online and allows everyone to compete on a fundraising event. Guess2Give offers the ability to raise money from new activities via corporate, community and events fundraising. There is a wide range of UK charities already on Guess2Give.com that anyone can raise money for, but if your charity isn't there, simply send us an email and we'll contact them.
