Have Fun - Do Good

We're hosting a contest called the NetSquared Mashup Challenge that I wanted to let you know about, and am hoping that you'll pass on to social changemakers and web innovators in your community. You don't need to have tech expertise to submit a project to the Challenge, just an idea for a change you want to make that could be facilitated by a mashup. Wikipedia defines a mashup as, "a web application that combines data from more than one source into a single integrated tool."

Fundraising Ideas

Tech Soup Blog

Think battle of the bands, a concert, a DJ mashup, or a party that people will pay to attend or have a karaoke night where attendees not only pay to participate but can donate to see your staff sing! Focus on gathering people together and including fun side events or contests. It can be hard trying to get people in your network and community to donate or get involved in fundraising activities. This is especially true if you only reach out to them when you need something from them.

After all, YouTube was the cause of George Allen’s self-inflicted killer sound byte in 2006 (a term I’m borrowing from the very funny Mark Katz ), not to mention the fact that every time they try user-generated video, it ends up like one of Homer Simpson’s inventions : the latest two examples being Mitt Romney’s "make your own ad" event and the NRCC’s "Your Direction" contest.
