The Latest Viral Fundraising Gimmick.

Advantages: An added gimmick raises money quicker.
Disadvantages: How many actually donate?

Will It Change Anything? I don't think that the recent Ice Bucket Challenge will change future fundraising methods, as I don't think the method of adding a gimmick to help raise awareness for a charity is anything new. Before the Ice Bucket Challeng ...

Advantages: Personally raised 40K for charitable organisations since 2008
Disadvantages: Charity fads die, but their lasting effect is everlasting to the charity's detriment

Advantages: Good for any money raised, people had fun
Disadvantages: Silly fad, Publically nominating people to give to charity

...think this has changed the way people give to charity in the long run - the ones who mainly do give do it quietly because they believe in a cause and do not feel the need to broadcast that they have given on Facebook. Ice Bucket Challeng ...
