Crowdfunding campaigns continue to raise billions of dollars from around the world. They are one of the largest sources of revenue for many nonprofits. This type of fundraising continues to grow. With the aid of social media, crowdfunding has become the largest financial source for new projects. Crowdfunding equals social media and email marketing for the campaign team, but it is well worth the effort.

This unique, human feature of UHelp allows you to develop customized projects, with social media strategies tailored to your creative or nonprofit cause.

Let’s take a look at a nonprofit, ACRI, that is working to raise awareness for their cause.
What is ACRI?
According to Murray Famuditimi, Executive Director of the Afro Canadian Relief International, “ACRI is an organization committed to raising awareness for violence against women.” Founded by Murray Famuditimi, the ACRI seeks to educate the international community about violence against women by teaching preventative measures and responsive techniques to these unfortunate kinds of situations. Mr. Famuditimi further explained, “We host courses, seminars, and conferences to distribute information and awareness about violence against women.”
Mr. Famuditimi advised,
“If there is any element of violence, the woman must speak. The best way to treat violence is to talk. Don’t keep silent.”

We contacted Mr. Famuditimi after he started his project and reviewed his video images, the pitch of his campaign and his perks. Mr. Famuditimi explained his pitch more clearly, “Contributing to this project will enable ACRI to significantly decrease violence against women at a grass-roots level while promoting the awareness of violence against women, as well as women’s rights. We’re going to invite communities to attend, to raise awareness, to encourage women to speak.”
