Daily Crowdsource has published a number of articles on HelpersUnite.com lately, and Microvolunteering Wednesdays has taken note!
Rather than recapping what the service does, which is to help align creatives with a cause while creating a crowdfunding project. Let’s look at another interesting question that this new platform has inspired.
- The anxiety from asking the crowd for money for your project might be lessened because you are no longer just asking for yourself, but for something others and you already believe in: fighting animal suffering, for example.
- You increase your audience not only to your crowd and your project’s related subject, but now to the supporters of a cause.
- You feel that you are helping not only yourself and your project’s goals, but you are in effect doing work for charity, a big motivation boost!
- You can advertise, if you are funded, that your project not only was crowdfunded, but that it has raised money for a cause– not something many other freshly funded projects can say!
