1Dollar1Home Launches Crowdfunding platform to Support Individuals and Families in Crisis
Crowdfunding platform gives Story creators the tools to raise funds for friends and families in crisis; donors can give as little as a Dollar
Washington, DC – We’re introducing 1Dollar1Home.com, a micro-donations and do-good crowdfunding community for only social causes, especially cases of personal and family crisis. We believe we can change the way the world views giving, one dollar, one donation and one Story at a time. Our platform is taking a new approach to online donations. By combining generosity and collaboration, we seek to empower people to create positive change in Stories in our communities by making really small donations. Our mission is to simply connect generous strangers to support and raise funds for friends and families in dire need of financial help for medical expenses, personal and family crisis via compelling, engaging online fundraising campaigns. All we ask is a $1 minimum donation from donors and supporters (friends and family) of Stories and campaigns shared on the platform.
“Our platform is for the friend or home in need of $100 to $1000 to prevent crisis and supplement their bills or rent within the shortest possible time. 1Dollar1Home will be a good fit for people in need of a few hundred dollars to resolve crisis. We embrace the untold Stories and are happy to fund it even if it means only $1 dollar donations from strangers. All we ask on our platform is a $1 contribution from donors and supporters (friends, family and awesome strangers).”
We’ve focused on simplicity and built a very simple and engaging platform that supports Stories and campaigns with large or small fundraising goals. Individuals, groups, social causes and non-profits can tell their Stories to raise funds for medical expenses, personal and family crisis and loved ones in need. Setting up an account and sharing a Story on the platform takes no more than five minutes; users sign in with either an email address or Facebook or Google+ login, provide their PayPal or disbursement information and share their Story.
1Dollar1Home securely stores the information and users. The platform is free for Story creators and donors. 1Dollar1Home takes an “average or lower than average” fee of 2% on every transaction to run our operations. One donor perk of supporting 1Dollar1Home Story is the platform doesn’t ask for a snail mail address, so users aren’t inundated with follow-up mailings (and the associated wasted resources).
1Dollar1Home’s creation was inspired by idea that generous strangers can collaborate to use as little as one dollar to make a difference in a person’s life or home and change their Story. “Even a really small donation can be impactful for an individual or a family, if it comes from a user that has a network of friends in their social circle who can chip in a small amount. We’re changing how individuals view philanthropy.”
