Influence

We can't guarantee that your supporters will raise a ton in donations easily, but if they follow these suggestions, they'll be on the right track. Personal connections motivate people to give more than the cause in and of itself. This doesn't mean you should incessantly blast out streams of messages to your network asking for donations. Keep up the human connections. Help other people connect with the cause and need by focusing on being human.
