Red Nose Day

March 15, 2013 by  

Red Nose Day, Fund-raising website JustGiving has crashed just as Red Nose Day gets under way.

Many people raising cash for Comic Relief were planning on using the site to gather funds as they did stunts on the appeal’s main day.

However, the site crashed about 10:00 GMT and, so far, it’s not been possible to make any donations.

JustGiving said that donations via text still worked and it was working on getting the site back in action.

People raising money for charity use JustGiving as an easy way for people to pledge cash to their project, stunt or event. Cash can be donated via individual pages set up on the site.

Many people doing “something funny for money” to raise cash for Comic Relief had been directing potential sponsors and donors to their individual JustGiving web pages as Red Nose Day got under way on Friday.

However, efforts to raise cash could be dented as the JustGiving website became unreachable early on 15 March. It’s not clear what the ultimate effect of the crash will be as Comic Relief also lets people set up fund-raising pages on its own website.

JustGiving used its Twitter account and Facebook page to apologise for the website being unreachable.
