Can I use the Facebook donate button?

We encourage everyone to share their unique fundraising link on Facebook so people can click through to their page and donate. This way all funds donated will appear on your page.

If you use the Facebook donate button, unfortunately we cannot link the donations to your page. Fight Parkinson's will still receive the funds, but they won't appear on your page or update your total.

Always share your link on social directly.
