I Want To Help Others Do This!

    how do I ask for help with a goal? I can’t work it out at all :-(

  4. Daniel Spils Says:

    When you click on your goal, you’ll arrive at the goal page. On the right hand side you’ll see if people have completed this goal. If anyone is willing to help it will say something like, “2 out of 2 people (100%) think this is worth doing. 1 person is willing to help.”. <br />
    <br />
    Click on “1 person is willing to help”. There you can ask a question of the helper. Hope this helps.
