Crowdfunding is a fundraising technique that consists of asking many people for small donations to support a cause to reach a larger financial goal. So, instead of asking a few people for large sums of money to fund your third half experience, you can push your support request out via social media and email to a much larger audience. Many smaller donations can have a large scale impact when added together, and that’s our goal – to have a lasting and positive impact on the long-term sustainability of our local hosts.
This platform is an online fundraising tool that allows third half customers to utilize their personal and social networks to raise funds to support their local hosts long after their third half experiences end. The money raised here by third half customers can either be used to offset the costs of their landed packages and/or flights, or travelers can choose to donate funds raised directly to the local host organization as an additional leave behind.
