WELCOME TO THE MARIANNE WILLIAMSON FOR CONGRESS CROWDFUND!
Crowdfunding is the practice of funding a cause by raising many small amounts of money from a large number of people, typically via the Internet.
Ours is a grass roots campaign; Marianne accepts no money from special interest PACs or lobbyists.
This means WE THE PEOPLE MUST FUND her campaign!
You must be a U.S. Citizen or permanent resident/green card holder to be a fundraiser and/or to donate.
It's simple, it's easy.
Your page will instantly be set up for you and ready to go!
This is an example of what the top of your page will look like:
To Receive Your Own Fundraising Page
1) Click this CROWDFUND FOR MARIANNE Button
(The sign-up must be done from a computer.)
2) After clicking the button above, you can access your page in one of two ways:
SIGN IN WITH FACEBOOK (you can choose to click "SKIP" where Rally asks you to connect with your Facebook friends)
a) Your Full name
b) E-mail Address
c) Create a password of your choice
Please read all below before you begin fundraising.
Everything is set up and ready-to-go for you!
Your page is directly linked to the campaign's and you don't need to collect or manage any donations. All donations made to your page via the green CONTRIBUTE button are linked directly with Marianne's campaign.
This is what your fundraising page will look like.
3. Enter your GOAL AMOUNT
In the yellow bar along the top of your own page, click on "Edit Settings" and enter your goal amount.
People will be more likely to contribute the closer you are to your goal. You can change your goal amount anytime you want.
Consider this: If 2,000 of Marianne's supporters each raise $500, we will collectively raise $1,000,000 for Marianne!
This is what your fundraising page will look like AFTER you set your goal amount.
4. Enter your own HEADLINE
In the yellow bar along the top of your own page, click on Edit Settings > Tell Your Story
