New web site - $20 Fundraising

A little over a year ago I blogged about a Reverend in England who gave 90 parishioners £10 each with the request that they do something with it to increase the donation within six months.

I've thought about that story often in the year or so since then, and find I am still inspired by it. This morning I have launched a website dedicated to spreading the word that fundraising doesn't always have to to be difficult or expensive.

I am simply calling it - Twenty Dollar Fundraising Ideas ($20 is approximately £10). I have posted the first ten low-cost fundraising ideas, the Reverend's story, and a form for readers to submit their own $20 ideas.

Please check it out and let me know what you think. Thank you!

  1. What a great idea!

    I've seen some personal finance bloggers do $10 projects along the same general concept, but I like the way you've pulled it all together into a central location. It'll be exciting to see what people come up with.
