How do I get my free t-shirt?

We'll send you a t-shirt and sponsorship card after you put your address and t-shirt size in here.

What if I can’t do 100 sit-ups everyday?

There are people of all levels of fitness doing this challenge. The important thing is that you're doing something that challenges you. This will vary from person to person, so tailor the challenge however you like. It should be tough, but doable. You should feel satisfied when you finish it! Every single sit-up you do will help people experiencing homelessness.

How do I keep track of/prove how much I've done?

You can use this Sit-ups Tracker to track your progress. If you like you can post screen grabs of the Sit-ups Tracker in the Facebook group along with photos/videos of you completing your sets.

Can I start late or early?

Of course! It doesn’t matter at what time of the month you start. We are living through unprecedented times and everything and anything you do will support people who are homeless and in very at-risk groups.

What if I don't complete the challenge?

The only thing that matters is that you challenge yourself. Do as much as you can. Every sit-up will help people who are homeless and more vulnerable than ever during this challenging time.

How do I raise money?

Facebook Fundraisers are the easiest way to raise money. You can set one up in a few seconds here. And then it's really easy to share the page with your Facebook friends.

Once you have set up a Facebook Fundraiser, please edit the name of your fundraiser to something like “Your Name’s” 100 Sit-ups a Day in April challenge for Depaul as it will help us recognise your page as being part of the challenge.

 

How do I change the target/end date on my Facebook Fundraiser?

Go to your Facebook Fundraiser.  Click on the ‘More’ Option, select ‘edit fundraiser’, change the amount and/or the end date and save the changes.

If you don’t extend the date the default setting by Facebook is 7 days so your fundraiser will end after this time.

 

Where will my friends' money go?

Directly to Depaul to support people who are homeless during this unprecedented time. You don't have to worry about this. It happens automatically.
