The fight against cancer, HIV/Aids, hunger, poverty, and other deadly plague goes on. Hardly anyone I know can say they DON'T have a friend or a relative that has battled these terrible causes in the past.
With the recession affecting householdsâ disposable income, local charity organizations are hardest hit as donorsâ money are drying up.
In the last 4 months I have been developing a concept people can use to raise micro funds worldwide using SMS and phone calls. This is one of the best initiatives you can use to help your local charity organizations survive these tough times.
I called it âvirtual marathon fundraising via phone calls and SMS.â This is an innovative way to raise funds for charities without actually taking part in any physical marathon races. When you agreed to run in our fundraising race, you will be able to nominate a charity of your choice as beneficiary of a portion of the proceeds from registration fees paid by other participants.
The marathon is very simple and consists of participants inviting only 7 of their friends to call or send SMS to a premium number set aside for the competition in their country. The group that mobilized the highest number of friends and well-wishers to make calls or send SMS win the prize money allocated for that category.
What is special about the idea of raising funds via SMS?
As you will agree, almost everyone has taken part in SMS lottery competitions before. However, with our virtual marathon fundraising, instead of calling and sending SMS for funs, you can now use our service to help a charity of your choice to benefits from the SMS you and your friends send out. We give back half of the net profit we make from your call or SMS to the charity of your choice.
It is not just about helping me to breakthrough with this idea but it also an opportunity for you to know how to use our service and ideas to raise funds for your own community, or church or social group in times of emergencies like natural disasters, or help local charities in their fight against cancer, HIV/Aids, hunger, poverty, etc, or even set up educational trust in your name for that kid, or families, your old school associations, etc.
I can also customized the concept and website for any organisation or church or ministry who want to raise funds fast from its members.
