Re: Raising $15,000 in 28 Hours
September 15, 2015


I just had to share this article with you about a creative Crowdfunding project that raised $15,000 in 28 hours.

It has now gone on to raise just short of $150,000 and is still going strong.

The article, which is written by the fundraiser herself, is all about collecting 3,235 emails the 3 months before the campaign, and how that played a pivotal role in the campaign.

It's a great article with some brilliant takeaways that you should use for your own Crowdfunding campaigns and fundraising drives.


  • The power of email through a targeted list of people interested in your cause.

  • And the importance of the first 48 hours of your campaign.

Of course the fundraiser is for a creative project and not a charitable cause but the strategies are just as relevant. It was done through Kickstarter as well, which is a platform purely for creatives and startups.

As a charitable cause you would use a platform like instead.

What Am I Reading at The Moment?

I thought I'd introduce a new section to the Fundraiser Buzz newsletter and let you know what books I'm reading at the moment.

Obviously I'm not talking about Novels, but rather self-development, business, and of course, fundraising books.

So here's what I'm reading at the moment...

The Magic of Thinking Big - by David J. Schwartz, Ph.D. A book that I am thoroughly enjoying!

And I'm re-reading Paige Robinson's excellent "250+ Fundraising Ideas for Your Charity, Society, School and PTA."

Don't Forget To Read These Important Pages as Well:

And that's it for this week. Good luck with your fundraising.

So do you have any...
