My Thoughts on CROWDFUNDING FOR SOCIAL GOOD?
Well for starters, not being an economic whiz kid, I had to find out what Crowdfunding was. In short, it is a currently favored manner to raise capital in tiny amounts from a very large group of individuals via social media and the Internet. I recently saw this in action via another book and the author's use of the site Indiegogo. Pretty ingenious, if I do say so myself. It is a method that appeals to me. I am a pretty frugal soul so I would not normally just give my funds to a stranger without a pretty good reason but participating in Crowdfunding? Yes, I would.
So how does Devin's book bring it all back around to doing things for the social good, i.e humanitarian efforts? Well, he goes into what steps to take to make doing something for others just because you can and they have need easy. He gives specific examples of how to make good use of all of our amazing Social Media resources and make your dream to do good come alive.
I have read Devin's books before and have to admit that while I normally could not care less about a financial book and therefore would not normally even pick one up, his manner of presenting information is clear, interesting and easy for even the lay-person to understand. This book really hit home with me, especially after my trip to China to adopt my daughter. I believe in the Starfish Story...while maybe I cannot make a difference for everyone, I can make a difference to the 'one' . This book shows me how to make that possible.

I love Devin's approach to writing and to the world. If you have any desire to run or participate in a Crowdfunding campaign to truly make a difference - this is the book to read. There are so many programs that I support and after reading this book I am seriously considering moving some of my efforts to a crowdfunding campaign. I am a firm believer in - even one person can make a difference in the world. I have also read Devin's other books and between them all a true plan can be mapped out to make a difference. Get this book to assist in your efforts - you will learn so much and become so much more successful in your campaign.
