For most charities to succeed and raise enough fundraising to venture new ideas and projects, public awareness is paramount to the cause! For this to be carried out, advertising what your charity stands for, what its hoping to achieve and main events that may be listed are all good methods of getting your message across.

According to Christina Warren at Mashable, there are plenty of ways of making people more knowable by using some fantastic online tools. We have reported on just some of these to give you a head start. Tools could include: “Crowdrise”. This enables users to check out the charity’s link via online social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter and for the charity, it can earn points from their community projects and ideas. Another great way to raise funds is by way of “Change.org”. By users developing a new program could create a petition or letter that could be signed by others, or as a way of a user donating their money.

The last tool we would like to talk about is “Chipin”, a widget tool on the web that allows users to donate any amount of money . This is proving to be a fantastic way of collecting money for your charity. By using any method of payment, donations can then be tracked and progress made can be seen.
