Sometimes life hits us hard. Whether it’s a serious diagnosis from the doctor, the results of a natural disaster or family emergency, these can be not only devastating to your wellbeing, but also to the pocketbook. Or maybe it’s a nonprofit organization, church or school doing good in the world, but lacking funds to help better the people it serves. Fundraising, or rather “crowdfunding,” is an answer to some of these issues. And WonderWe makes it easy to make this a reality.
With a focus on faith, family and friends, WonderWe takes the “me” out of fundraising and turns it into a “we” with peer-to-peer fundraising. If a need arises to raise money, WonderWe gives the platform to help individuals or organizations raise funds through the people they know. Those people can then raise money through the people they know, and so on.
For example, if an individual wanted to raise money for a church missions trip, they could start a campaign through WonderWe to raise, let’s say, $5,000. They reach out to family, friends and coworkers through efforts such as social media, email and print and ask for support. They then can ask those supporters to start their own mini campaign to reach the people they know to raise a percentage of the main financial goal, such as $500 of the $5,000. Ten people raising $500 each will help reach the goal more effectively and quickly than one person fundraising alone.
With peer-to-peer fundraising, also known as team/social fundraising or p2p crowdfunding, comes many benefits. It brings the opportunity to gather more money than with traditional fundraising. A large, seemingly overwhelming financial goal seems more reachable when broken down into smaller increments through mini campaigns. You also have a deeper trust with your supporters and a wider reach. And you can obtain better ideas from others to develop new ways of giving such as using birthdays, graduations or other special events as opportunities to donate. On top of that, it helps establish new relationships for future fundraising efforts.
Creating a mini peer-to-peer campaign on WonderWe is simple. In as little as five minutes, you can be done. Just visit WonderWe.com or mobile app and click on “Start a fundraiser.” Describe your fundraiser and goal, and even add pictures and video to make your fundraiser stand out and shine.
Then ask your supporters to think about starting their own fundraiser and have them ask others to do the same. Highlighted on your fundraising page is a link for peer-to-peer fundraising which donors can click to easily set up their own mini fundraiser.
Best of all, to do this, is free, unlike other crowdfunding sites that take a profit from the money raised. And giving on WonderWe is also safe and secure.
So whether it’s supporting a cause in your community, a loved one with a need or a nonprofit organization, peer-to-peer fundraising is a smart and easy way to reach a financial goal by the generosity and networking of a larger number of supporters and donors only crowdfunding can bring.
