FAQs

What different ways can I fundraise for bikes for kids?

add remove

You can choose to connect your fitness app and set a k's for kids challenge, start an online page or set up a Facebook fundraiser to make a difference!

I'm doing k's for kids! How do I connect my fitness app?

add remove

Once you've signed on you'll receive a special profile page.

Your profile page includes your personal distance tally so you can track your distance towards your target. This is a great way to keep your friends updated on your workouts!

If you track your workouts with Fitbit, MapMyFitness or Strava your distances will automatically add to your tally.

Follow these steps to track your KMs automatically:

1. Download the FitbitStrava or MapMyFitness app and set up your account

2. Log in to your Variety Bikes for Kids account.

3. Under the heading ‘Connect your preferred Fitness app’, click your chosen app.

4. Follow the prompts to connect your account

5. When you next work out, select ‘start your workout’ in the app on your phone. Once you end your workout, save your workout and your distance will be published to the tally on your page the following day.

If you have synced your app already but it is not working, please log in and re-connect it.

When using Fitbit, you must ‘start’ an activity and save it. Your daily steps will not automatically add to your page. If you are having issues, try syncing through BOTH your Fitbit and the Fitbit app on your smartphone.

When using MapMyFitness, you must ‘start’ your workout, ‘stop’ your workout and then ‘SAVE’ your workout.

Your tally will be updated each day with the previous day’s distances.

Remember, you can manually add your kilometres to the tally in your My Fitness Activity tab of your profile after registering. This is a great option if you’re using a pedometer or a different method of tracking your distances.

Follow these steps to manually add your KMs:

1. Log in to your account and select ‘My Fitness Activity’

2. Under ‘Add activity’, enter the date and distance

3. The number of KMs will now appear on your fundraising page!

What fundraising goal should I set?

add remove

We suggest a minimum of $245 for individual pages to raise funds for one complete bike package with bike, helmet and lock for a child who would otherwise miss out.

Why not raise the bar?
- $590 = 2 bike packages
- $735 = 3 bike packages
- $1225 = 5 bike packages


For teams, we suggest aiming high and setting your target to $2,450 for bike packages for 10 kids!

Will people who support my page get a receipt?

add remove

Yes! All your donors will receive an instant tax-deductible receipt for gifts over $2.

Can I start a team?

How do I join an existing team?

add remove

How do I share my page?

When you sign up you'll receive a unique link for your challenge page. We'll also send you an email with your link. Simply copy and paste and share with friends on email, SMS or social media. You can also use your page dashboard to share with your mates with pre-loaded text and imagery!

Are there any fees charged to Variety if I fundraise on Facebook?

  3. Select "Fundraisers" from the drop-down menu.

  4. Under the "Fundraisers" section, you will see three tabs: "Discover," "Your Fundraisers," and "Donate."

  6. Browse through the list to find the specific fundraiser you're looking for.

If you still can't find your fundraiser, try using the search bar at the top of the Facebook page. Type in the name of your fundraiser, and then click on the "Fundraisers" filter in the search results. This will narrow down the results to only show fundraisers, making it easier to locate yours.

Does my Facebook fundraising sync with my Variety Bikes for Kids page?

add remove

Yes, if you chose to set up an online fundraising page and selected set up a Facebook fundraiser (at the end of the registration process or later by logging into your dashboard and clicking the Facebook button on your banner) all funds from Facebook will sync to your main page.

If you chose to set up a standalone Facebook fundraiser you will not have a page on this site, your fundraiser will be solely native to Facebook.

Where does my fundraising go?

add remove

Your hard work goes straight to purchasing quality bike packages, helmets and locks for kids who would otherwise miss out on the joy and physical, mental and emotional benefits of owning their own bike.
