WISHING YOU GREAT SUCCESS WITH YOUR FIRST FILM:
Your newly registered cause may take a day to process in our system. When it's activated:
YOU WILL receive A CUSTOM LINK (VIA EMAIL) TO BUY TICKETS!
When new movies are available as FilmRaisers we will send you a unique LINK—direct to Fandango (or Atom Tickets) that you can email, share and post. It will track any tickets your supporters buy through it!
please be sure to whitelist all emails from FILMRAISER!
If our emails aren't making it to your inbox, you're going to miss important stuff: invites to new movies, sales reports, custom links. We want each of your events to be more and more successful. Here are simple actions you can take to ensure that you don't miss a thing:
1) Add email@example.com as a contact in your address book.
2) If you're a Gmail user, or you use another web-based email that filters "promotions" away from your main inbox, be sure to "drag" any emails from us into your Primary Inbox. This will ensure that you don't miss a thing.
