Tips galore.


Here are some helpful tips that I've learned while on my own fundraising journey.

1) Plan ahead, start early, and stay organized.
2) Ask everyone you know around your community.
3) Don't let rejections get you down. You'll receive more rejections than acceptances.
4) Suggest a specific amount to each donor (be realistic).
5) Be enthusiastic, show that you care about your topic.
6) Be polite and say thank you.

Follow these tips and see how it goes. Does anyone else have any other tips? Leave a comment!

AND keep pressing that donate button.

Thank you and I'm out!

D.C. here I come..


My name is Michelle.

I have been nominated to attend a Forum on Law and and CSI (Crime Scene Investigation) in Washington D.C. this summer. This will be a great opportunity for me and my fellow peers to learn more about our future profession. The Forum enables students to participate in law trials and crime investigations, also allowing students to visit law firms, law schools, and legal institutions.

In order to attend the Forum, I and my fellow nominees have to raise a tuition of about $1.800 which includes a payment for college credit and a tuition and travel protection plan. I'm asking you, readers, to help me out. Every penny counts and I would be eternally grateful to those who are willing to help. Even if it means just sending out happy vibes.

Aside from the tuition, I have to raise money for a round trip ticket and personal expenses. My top priority at the moment however is being able to raise the tuition money first. The deadline is March 19, 2010.

So please press the donate button.

Please and thank you!
