Step 2: Enter in a compelling campaign title, a campaign goal and a campaign story. Click Next.
Step 3: Upload and crop a photo in the appropriate format (jpg, jpeg, gif, or png) to fit within the 600 x 400 pixel size requirements. From there, click Campaign Manager to navigate to the page where you’ll begin customizing.
