Raise Money for Yourself or Someone You Care About
Raise money for a person or family in need?
Spread the word about the person’s or family’s need. Start with their own networks of relatives, co-workers, neighbors, and other acquaintances. People are more likely to give if they have some form of relationship with the people in need.
You’ve probably heard or seen news reports, articles, or webpages that ask for donations to help pay a person’s medical bills or to help a family recover after a disaster. Likewise, write a letter or press release and ask local media if they will share it with their audiences.
Raise money for something you invented?
Same thing counts as described above, however most important make sure you setup some perks/rewards, people will love to purchase your invention.
Of course many other ideas or project can be done like funding a hobby.
Example you are a painter make sure the rewards, contain paintings. etc.
