This is my first update the indiegogo project I started in order to create a new charity to feed, shelter, and educate the homeless. So far, I have 1 contribution. That one contribution was from someone that has personally seen how the homeless live and wanted to take action to help me reach my goal. I have a $200,000 goal and less than 60 days to get there.
I am a little unnerved that the campaign has been live for almost 5 days and I am getting little action on this. The campaign has been shared with hundreds of Facebook friends, thousands of Facebook users, thousands of Twitter users during a bunch of tweets, Google+ users, you name it…it has been done. It makes me wonder…does anyone care about the homeless?
I am asking my vast amount of rss and newsletter subscribers to help me by contributing…even if all you can do is $10. The more momentum I get on this campaign, the better chance it can be featured on the indiegogo homepage and receive lots more exposure.
I also ask you to share share share! If you tweet, please use the #indiehomeless hashtag and direct it to @Brandon_Connell.
Remember, we have a chance to get the homeless off of the streets for good by providing them with an education in business, computers, and finance. Many of the homeless do not have these skills so they do not know that they can be earning money online even while they are homeless! What if someone taught them how to start a business while they were in the shelter? What if they had the computers and other basic needs for running that business from the shelter? They would get on their feet for good!
