I have created an official crowdsourcing page to try and help fund a volunteer endeavor abroad with Crowdrise.They provide a platform for all kinds of projects but with Crowdrise, you are not required to provide merchandise, stocks or ownership in a project or business as compensation for the donation. Crowdrise does require that you also do some fundraising for a charity of your choice. I chose The Massage Therapy Foundation and I do try to remember to use their page when I buy things on Amazon.com.
Anyway – please stop by and donate if you are so inclined! If not, please view what I have written on the Crowdrise page and if you have suggestions for how to make it both approachable and savvy, please email, text or leave a comment below.
