Those Birthday Fundraisers on Facebook Raised $300 Million!
At first, I thought it was kinda annoying...a few friends celebrating their birthdays on Facebook by starting a fundraiser. Then more did.
Then mental health became a HUGE deal in my life (more on that in the coming weeks).
I decided to start a fundraiser for my birthday, and ended up raising $500 for Mental Health Minnesota. It was awesome to witness so many of my friends pitch in to reach my goal, and to raise funds for a severely-underfunded sector of public health.
So how did the fundraisers do overall in its first year? 300 million dollars of AHHH YEAAAHHH!!!
Not too bad.
There are a whole lot of ways to raise money on Facebook for a cause that is near and dear to your heart.
