Crowdfunding – Get Behind The Stuff You Care About
If you’ve never heard of crowdfunding before it’s a cool way to raise money. So if you need startup capital for new projects, causes, or entrepreneurial ventures. This could be an alternative way to raise the dosh!
In all honesty, it’s not too different to the old ways of fundraising. But with the internet, it makes it possible to reach people on a global scale. Lots of people around the world can contribute small amounts to your project. So that you can reach that big money goal quicker. Most campaigns have awesome rewards for their backers too.
Here are 3 Crowdfunding sites that I’ve used to back great projects:
Why I love Crowdfunding:
For people like you and me crowdfunding lets us get behind projects we believe in. Projects that’ll help our community. Causes that address bigger social issues that we care about. Or just cool inventions that we want to see in our lives. You’ll often find projects that you wish you had the time to start yourself. And miraculously a stranger you’ve never met or spoken to has found the time to bring your idea(s) to life
There’re some awesome crowdfunding projects happening at the mo. But this one in particular hit home (literally!) Because it’s one from my home country!
Being Frank is a creative company started by three ladies in South Africa. They not only like designing cool shit they also wanna create positive change in the world. Me likes that a lot
Their first project is: Pimp My Street Kitchen.
They’re mission: is to help three local street food vendors in Jo’burg. They wanna fix up their trailers to be fully functioning mobile kitchens. And nurture their entrepreneurial skills too.
Contribute anyway you can (that may be time, services, product or money).
And share the campaign far and wide. Because you never know who’s desk it’ll land on
PS. This campaign is time sensitive. From today 27 November 2016 they’ve got 20 days left to reach their goal.
