We’re sorry to hear this. When you make a donation, you should have the option to assign this to a team or person that’s taking part in RED. If you didn’t get this option, or did but your donation isn’t showing on their page, please do get in touch with the team at events@rethink.org

What happens if I don't raise the minimum fundraising target?

There’s a short delay between when you enter your activity and when it shows on your profile. If you wait thirty minutes and come back to it, it should show. Please do get in touch if you can’t see it after that time at events@rethink.org.

Your celebratory badges will appear at key milestones during your RED journey, for example, when you’ve reached your activity and/or fundraising goal. These can be found via ‘My Achievements’ tab in your RED profile.
