Help Inspire the Crowd for Social Good
My latest book, Crowdfunding for Social Good, Financing Your Mark on the World, is ready to go. I just need your help to publish and promote it.
Please pledge $4 to help me get this book into the hands of those who will use it to really change the world, to fight cancer, hunger, poverty, injustice, and bad hair pieces. Whatever their cause, if we help them to be more effective, we’ll live in a better world!
Everyone who pledges at least $4 will receive a digital copy of the book, recognition here on yourmarkontheworld.com and an acknowledgement in the book. Those who give more will receive other rewards, including printed copies of the book, opportunities to promote your business or cause in the book, and much more.
By supporting my campaign, not only will you help to celebrate the success of the ten social causes profiled in my new book, Crowdfunding for Social Good: Financing Your Mark on the World, you will be helping every future social entrepreneur who reads the book raise the money they need to make the change they want to see in the world.
Like Eight-year-old Vivienne Harr who decided she would make it her life’s work to end child slavery. Crowdfunding has helped her raise almost half-a-million dollars to do it.
As another example, Martha Griffen wanted to help her son, born with a birthmark on his face, to learn to celebrate what makes him different, so she wrote a book called Sam’s Birthmark and crowdfunded over $31,000 to publish it.
Jennifer Windrum wants to provide support to those who suffer from cancer, creating her Sock Monkeys Against Cancer—SMAC! Monkeys—financing her vision with $35,000 she raised through crowdfunding.
Other successful crowdfunders profiled in the book include Live More Awesome, Do Good Bus, TOHL, Kaden Benoit, Rainbow Summits, Silicon Valley Education Foundation, and Habitat for Humanity.
My book began to take shape while writing my Forbes blog where I started covering crowdfunding a year ago. My first exposure to crowdfunding came when I wrote the book Your Mark on the World and included a chapter about Alex Budak, founder of StartSomeGood. I wrote that book while teaching in China. Previously in my career, I served as a corporate CFO and as an investment banker. Since leaving corporate finance I work full time at championing social good.
By supporting my campaign you’ll help me to finance the publication and promotion of my book so that I can help the helpers. Whether you contribute four dollars or four hundred, I’ll provide you with rewards and recognition that will bring attention to you, your cause, your business or your brand.
While it won’t take much money to publish my book, it takes real money to promote the book effectively enough that it gets into the hands of those who will benefit from it the most. Please help by supporting my campaign with at least $4, personally ask one friend to do the same and please help me spread the word on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and on every other social media platform.
