Please see this link about how a group of people started a 501c3 to help a city recover after a disaster.
Wouldn’t it be fun to get together with friends and raise money for those problems that just seem so out if reach to solve? No one has the energy to put together a huge event single handedly. Perhaps you are undergoing a project that could use a monetary/idea boost? Keep checking back because I will provide a list of ideas below of farms, cities, businesses, organizations, or what not (not sure about our government right now) looking to raise awareness, attract supporters, and create a community. 🙂
I don’t know everything about it; please don’t mind me too much if I’m getting ahead of myself. But I do want to learn more about how to attract and persuade money into solving or supporting certain issues. It would be great to create a space for people willing to help themselves and inspire others about mental health. It would be great to raise money for those who newly aquire land and want to learn to design or want to hire someone to help them design a permaculture paradise (which would help create healthy food). And, it would be great to raise money to provide food and shelter to lost domestic animals.
At this moment, I would give money to those causes. I would run 5k (hacking and spitting after the first 3rd of it). And I would listen to a stream of an interview.
I know it can seem overwhelming, and because our schedules are already overbooked with work, school, and housework responsibilities. I understand if all that seems like too much. For now let’s recharge, and keep reading. I don’t know what steps need to be taken to get there. But, maybe, if that’s what one wants to do, then it can be figured out. Rome wasn’t built in a day, week, or probably even over months time. For now, I’ll try to stay focused on my base responsibilities. 🙂
I’ve heard Goodwill offers help in achieving financial goals: http://www.goodwill.org/find-jobs-and-services/
If you talk to a higher level official at your local bank (Branch Manager) they are part of Rotary Club or Lions Club and have meetings for fundraising events like pancake breakfasts, fishboils, and probably more: https://www.rotary.org/en
