Life can sometimes bring unexpected emergencies. Disasters such as hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, floods and fires that may cause damage to your home and community. While these emergencies are difficult to prepare for, crowdfunding can be a great way to fund your needs after disaster strikes. Whether you are raising funds for your own disaster relief, or for a friend or family member, here is how you can get your campaign up and running in under two minutes on FundLatios.
The details are the foundation of your campaign. Determine how much money you want to raise for your disaster relief campaign and by what date. Leave enough time for people to learn about your cause and to donate, but not so much time that they forget. Come up with a compelling title that is specific to the relief you need and why you need money (you can always go back and edit this later). A good title is actionable and gives visitors an idea of why you are raising money. The title introduces visitors to your campaign so explain why your cause is important and give people a reason to learn more.Start Your Campaign
Write a description that tells potential donors why you are raising money and how you will use the funds. Be honest and genuine about your campaign and why it is important to raise money. The more details you can give visitors about what’s happened to you, your family and your community, the more personal and authentic a campaign becomes. When that happens, people begin to feel connected to a cause and are much more likely to donate.Start Your Campaign
