April 25th, 2018, this Wednesday, Giving Day is like #GivingTuesday – the annual global day of giving on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving – because both are fueled by the power of social media and collaboration to achieve a simple goal: raise as much money as possible in a single day.
All hands on deck! That’s the rallying cry heard on “Giving Day,” for one-day fundraising campaigns that are mobilized to generate buzz and revenue for causes through a series of coordinated events.
Take advantage of this upcoming Giving Day to either be a "Giver" or to launch a fundraising campaign of your own on YouHelp.com, the free crowdfunding website (with the lowest payment processing rate available to nonprofits), or spread the word to potential donors about existing crowdfunding initiatives.
Libby Hikind, founder and CEO of YouHelp.com says, "You won’t be alone, on April 25, 2018. YouHelp's staff is ready and willing to assist your campaign. Set up your campaign today on YouHelp, and you may continue raising money for your nonprofit even when the day is over." Libby goes on to say, "Successful campaigns are campaigns where the immediate crowd of people closest to the nonprofit are energized and they in turn go on to each energize their own personal and work crowd. Yeah Team!"
Consider these campaigns already planned.

Crowdfunding through social media has become a popular venue to spearhead the community at large to get involved in a fundraising initiative. Real-time, in-the-moment themes promoted on a Giving Day can serve as prime opportunities to launch a crowdfunding campaign on YouHelp and inspire donors to give specifically to your cause.
YouHelp.com, a free fundraising website, offers the best in crowdfunding capabilities to forward-thinking nonprofits, small businesses, entrepreneurs, and individuals seeking to generate awareness and revenue for their causes. The YouHelp process is simple: create a profile, a fundraising goal, add high resolution images and a compelling message that prospects will find worthwhile — and launch. If the idea is deserving, and the campaign is promoted properly, contributors will pledge their support.
