Innovative Concept for FUNDraising
Parents these days are stretched thin raising money for their kids’ schools and activities as well as other organizations close to their hearts. Insider Pages ( fundraising is helping parents raise money for a variety of worthy causes, from the local PTA to the Three Day Walk for Breast Cancer, without having to ask their friends and family for donations to support each cause. The way it works is simple. Essentially, instead of asking your friends and family members for a donation, you ask them to write reviews of local businesses. They give their opinions on local doctors, dentists, contractors and hair salons and in turn Insider Pages donates back to the charity or organization. Parents understand the importance of word-of-mouth referrals for these types of businesses, which is why many mommies groups are latching onto this innovative concept.
