I am not used to doing things like this. I’ve always wanted to do things like this. Things like fundraising and trying to make a difference somehow.
I decided I’ll do fundraising, bravely thinking this is easy peasy! But you know, it is harder than I thought.
It is already so hard to put myself out there, to tell people about why I’m doing this, what I’m doing it for and all the vulnerability aspects that comes along with fundraising. I now have to do this fundraising during a world crisis, a pandemic. We don’t know what will happen. I’ve experienced Hurricane’s here in Jax and you know as soon as the storm passes we return back to our normal lives in just a couple of days sometimes even the next day. This time it’s a bit different we don’t know what the future holds. I’m sure things will return back to normal soon enough.
So do you have any ideas of fundraising during this unique times (as my friend had called it.)? I like that term, “unique times”, it makes the situation a little lighter than how it has been for the past couple of days. Social Media has created so much anxiety for me and I’m sure for everyone else around the world. It’s important to take breaks from Social Media from time to time.
Anyways, here I am attempting to be more open about myself and what I’m feeling and what I’m trying to accomplish on this crazy crazy time! I’ll look into different ways to raise money during this time.
Sorry, I do not have any answers YET! Am I alone in this situation right now? I’m looking for some people who are on the same boat as me so that we could brainstorm together in finding out different ways to go about this! 🙂 <3
Nothing but love, please! I could wait until all is well to fundraise but my cause means so much to me and my goal is just as big too. I don’t want to break a promise even knowing that they would understand. I want to know in my heart that I did my best and that I at least made an effort to do something about it.
If you’re interested in knowing more about my fundraising, please don’t hesitate to visit my gofundme charity page.
All, thank you so much for everrrrythinggg!
