You could use YouTube to create videos related to your fundraising.

To use our videos and showcase some of Age UK's work visit our YouTube channel, and you can embed our videos on your fundraising page.
If you have a blog this is a great way to share your photos and videos and social networking posts in one place. If you don’t have a blog but you have a great story, why not start one?
You could take pictures of your training or event and post them onto a photo sharing network such as Flickr or Picasa (soon to be part of Google+). Your pictures can show what you’re doing and why you’re doing it. Remember to share your page!
