There is no doubt that the Internet has opened up a world of opportunities for every person with access to it to have unlimited right of entry to the gateway to the world. For this reason, there is an enormous opportunity for do-gooders and charity organisations to use this priceless tool as an implement for increasing awareness of their needs and in raising funds or support.
Non-profit organisations and those dedicated to the upliftment of local culture, the care of those discriminated against, the conservation of the environment and the development of the world and its inhabitants are those that should seize the opportunity to make a difference by creating a website to achieve this.
Use the Internet to gain access to millions of people all over the world and let them know about your challenges, needs, events and goals. This kind of large-scale awareness is unrivalled and educates those more fortunate about the existing needs in the world around them. Use your website to:
- Announce fund-raising initiatives and competitions
- Include bank details for monetary donations
- Appeal to volunteers
- Request donations
- Provide information about your cause and its goals
The Internet is a global medium of communication. The vast majority of the population that has the means to help a charity also has access to the World Wide Web. It is also a very cost-effective way of marketing, as only a standard (usually small) hosting fee is payable. This is far more economically viable than expensive marketing campaigns and advertising materials.
Use the Internet to the full for the gain and advancement of good, both locally and internationally.
One of our favourite websites is called Care2.com – please support them by sending E-cards or signing petitions that really DO MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
