Update your Profile Picture
Use the AIDS New York logo as your profile picture to let everyone know you are walking and raising money to fight AIDS.

When you donate your profile picture, Facebook will create an album labeled "AIDS Walk New York Fundraising HQ Photos." Simply click on the album and make the logo your profile picture.

Update your Status
Get the word out with status updates, informing your friends of your participation and fundraising progress. You can even set up automatic status updates under the “Scheduled Newsfeeds” Tab.

Share your Story
You can also share why you walk and what AIDS Walk means to you! Click on the "Share Your Story" tab in your Facebook Fundraising HQ—this will take you to the message board of stories already submitted by other walkers this year. Fill out the necessary fields to share your story, and learn about others’ as well.

Access it in your Apps Menu
Once you have downloaded the Facebook Fundraising Application, you can access it right on your Facebook homepage.

Now you're ready to start fundraising with Facebook!
