This time it was a man who has created Everyday Hero – a website that managed to raise over a million dollars in a few weeks through its network of everyday people making a real change for their charity of choice.
It is a really simple and easy concept; you create a page about yourself and your chosen charity so donations can be made. You then share the link to the page and tell people why you are supporting the charity. People can then go to the page and click to make a donation.
I love the simplicity of it all and the results are incrediable with the amount of fundraising that’s been achieved.
Here are the categories that are currently existing – I’m sure this will grow as well. There’s something here for everyone so go for it – be the change you want in the world!

So go for it!
