Fundraising plan

How to fund-raise $750 or more in 5 months!

Change the order of these things as appropriate, and see these as minimum targets and some of your stress will be relieved. The more you can raise in the first few months, the more inspired you will be. Then as you get closer to your target, tell people how close you are and they might be more willing to help close the gap.

GOOD LUCK!
