Helping Others; Helping Yourself
If you believe in my work (writing and podcasting), you COULD just donate to the cause. Or you could donate through the CrowdRising platform, and let donors help you reach the goals YOU have as well.
When you donate to me through CrowdRising, I will add you to my mailing list so that you will have first access to my short stories, many at no further cost to you!
What Can I Raise Funds For?
Anything you want. When you donate to MY cause, it's with the understanding that it is a gift (just like when you spotted your buddy$20 for his "hot date" last month). Equally, those who donate to you are doing so with the knowledge that they may never get anything in return. The cool part is, almost EVERYONE can spare $20, and the potential in possible donations FAR out-weighs the minimal original gift.
When you do decide to assist with my writing endeavors by donating through CrowdRising, I will reward you by adding you to my Inner Circle Mailing List, so that you will receive my periodic short stories, many at no extra charge. I urge you to also offer something of value to your donors.
