As the scope of the unprecedented disaster in Asia continues to unfold, the question “How can I help?” is in everyone’s thoughts. Cool Running, in partnership with Justgiving, invites runners to help make a difference by creating their own online Personal Fundraising Page to support organizations involved in the relief efforts. Your passion for running can help you raise much-needed money for organizations involved in the ongoing relief and reconstruction efforts in South and Southeast Asia.

Here’s an example of a compelling Tsunami Relief page, With an online fundraising page like this, you can use any running event as an opportunity to raise hundreds or even thousands of dollars for organizations involved with relief efforts.

You can select the organization that you’d like to fundraise for and immediately build your page by clicking here. It takes only a couple of minutes to set up and e-mail your page to your family and friends, and visitors to your page can make a secure online donation with just a few clicks.

Justgiving has helped thousands of runners worldwide to raise millions of dollars for charity. If you are involved with a running club or event, you can place a link on your web site to this page so that other runners who may be interested in fundraising online can have the opportunity to do so.

Please forward this link to family, friends and colleagues that may want to join in the relief efforts by creating their own fundraising page.
