Leverage your network
People give to people and there's nobody named Somebody! Before you put out the call on social media or do an email blast, reach out to your inner circle one person at a time to ask for their support. Think about how you feel when a friend or family member tells you something is important to them - you want to help! Giving a timeline can help too. Let them know you're trying to reach your goal by the end of the week so they don't wait to give.
