We suggest you share your goalie’s link on Facebook or other social media platforms.  You will find social media icons below your goalie’s name on their dashboard.  Click these to share on Facebook, Twitter or to create a link to share on other platforms and through email.
Donations from Facebook are mailed at the first of the month and take 2 weeks or more to receive. The check arrives without the appropriate details to credit goalies for their fundraising efforts.They also do not provide the necessary information for October Saves to send donors a tax receipt for their donation.  For these reasons, we are unable to count funds raised through Facebook for our competition. Of course, if you are looking to raise additional money for cancer research, then we greatly appreciate your efforts.
