If you are a regular to the JustGiving blog you will know all about the features and benefits of our Campaign Pages and how they enable your charity to harness the power of the crowd with your fundraising. Through the versatility of a campaign page your supporters can donate to you directly or become advocates for your cause by fundraising on your behalf, widening the reach for your appeal.

Here are five examples of charities who have used campaigns to fund a specific cause, need or appeal, allowing them to reach more people, raise more money and change more lives in the process.
