Facebook has launched Personal Fundraisers, enabling users to raise money for themselves or something they care about, in the UK today. 

It is one of the tools that was announced as part of a wider expansion of fundraising tools in Europe earlier this year. 

Facebook said: “Personal Fundraisers on Facebook will make it simple for people to connect with their community and raise money for the people and things they care about. People can now create a fundraiser on Facebook and easily reach their friends in a few taps with the relevant information.” 

Fundraisers have to be over 18 and categories include education, medical, pet medical, crisis relief, personal emergency, funeral and loss, community, and sports.
