Entrepreneur Creates Free Tool For Nonprofits To Capture ALS Fundraising Success
The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has inspired a new entrant in the crowdfunding for nonprofits arena: JusTagMe.com.
Launched by crowdfunding site Darelicious, the new site is specifically designed to facilitate a challenge like the uber-successful ALS effort last summer, which raised over $100 million.
Founder Jorge Hernandez commented on the launch, “We full acknowledge that the success of the ALS challenge is not something easily replicated, but don’t think it’s ALS success or nothing. We look at JusTagMe as a site where organizations can raise money by utilizing minuscule resources. The value we’re offering is the ability to maximize their return with a very small investment of time. JusTagMe.com does not cost any money to use.”
On Thursday, December 11, 2014 at 2:00 Eastern, Jorge will join me for a live discussion about the new site and he’ll explain how nonprofits can use it to create their own campaigns. Tune in here then to watch the interview live.
