What online fundraising sites do you use?

I'm signed up for the MS200 "Breakaway to the Beach" ride in Sept and for the Marine Corps Marathon in Oct and need to set up a fundraising page. There appear to be a lot of options which ones are the best/easiest to use? The ride will be in support of the MS Society and the marathon will support Action for Healthy Kids.

Thanks.

I used BlackBaudNow ... bbnow.org.

Mainly wanted the ability to use paypal for people to donate online. They take a fee, but it's pretty reasonable

I have used http://www.justgiving.com/
Very easy to set an account up and for sponsors to donate money direct to the site.
Can also link to Facebook/Twitter if that is you thing for extra publicity.

You might need to make sure they support fundraising in your country.

HTH and good luck
