Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We've never come out and asked for funds for ourselves before, because we usually shake a bucket at events and that does us nicely. But because of the pandemic, no events mean no buckets! So this is a low-pressure option if you'd like to donate. Funds typically get spent on resources to use in schools, donations in kind to Syrians, print, etc.
Of course, we've fundraised for specific campaigns, like to buy items for newly arrived asylum-seekers recently - but we kept none of that.
