Brandi Clarck revolutionized the AUSTIN elections by developing the ELECTION NAVIGATOR TOOL to empower voters and gained a huge support from them

The Austin Business Journal said, “If Austin had one green ambassador, it would be Brandi," and the Austin Chronicle dubbed her the “Queen of Green”. She is a serial social entrepreneur having launched more than a dozen social ventures. She is also a community connector, active civic leader, trusted green advisor, and inspiring voice for change. 
The Challenge:  
Brandy wanted to raise funds to create an Election navigator for Austin’s first 10-1 general election. She wanted it to be a free community-driven data-rich tool to empower voters to identify the strongest and most sustainable minded candidates for City Council and Mayor. With the raised funds, she wanted to fund the election navigator tool and also to reach out to potential voters within Austin for using the tool.
 
What did we do?
We did our research, scheduled meetings with Brandi to give her idea a prescriptive and provided a compelling campaign story. We also did the donor profiling to target the right prospects. A few members of our customers' success team were delicately working with Brandi to understand and finalize the vision of the campaign. This gave us a clear picture of and framework of the overall campaign execution.
Within 29 days of campaign creation, we crushed it and realized more than 93% of the goal amount. Here is all that we did:

sunita_krishnan_crowdera

Dr. Sunitha Krishnan rescued over 16000 trafficked girls. With the raised funds, she provided them a  safe space by building Shelter Homes. 

Padma Shri Sunitha Krishnan is an Indian social activist and chief functionary and co-founder of Prajwala, a non-governmental organization that rescues, rehabilitates and reintegrates sex-trafficked victims into society. Krishnan works in the areas of anti-human trafficking and social policy.
 
The Challenge:  

Prajwala had successfully rescued over 16,000 women and girls from the flesh trade. But now, they had to set up an emergency shelter and a rehabilitation unit for survivors of sex trafficking and secure Prajwala. The series of attacks on Prajwala staff and facilities by miscreants and non-cooperative landlords made it a mandate. Otherwise, all efforts made for rescuing the survivors of sex trafficking would have been futile.

 

Padma Shree Dr. Suntha Krishnan came to us, having finalized the location of the Rescue Center for anti-sex trafficking. But to build the Rescue Center, she needed money for which she had no one to invest in. 

How did we look at it?
At that point in time, with no investor in place, we looked like the only hope of Dr. Krishnan. This made us realize our accountability towards this impactful campaign of hers. Visualizing its impact motivated the whole team and all of us gave our best. By providing our team syndication framework, we let her well-wishers become a part of her team, this enabled the good Samaritans to work for the cause together and bring the intended change.
 
Just over 2 campaigns, she raised $2,60,100 with us. Let's see what  all our team took care of :

Impact: 

Sexual harassment mostly has an adverse effect on the victims. Most of all it makes the victims lose their confidence but Dr. Sunitha Krishnan is someone who chose her own battle. Even after having a scary past, she stayed determined to help other women and girls. The collected funds were used for successfully establishing the rehabilitation center and emergency shelter. 

We are proud to tell that the rescued women and girls have started doing work for the sustainability of the Prajwala and are respectfully earning their livelihood.

  2. To support youth leadership in Guatemala
  3. For providing University scholarship and internship to young students from the indigenous community of Rabinal

It's been 7 years working with Micheal on different community development projects. Every year when he comes with a new cause to support we get elated and work around with every project in detail. As an organization, we feel immensely satisfied looking back at all the successful campaign Voses Y Manos has pulled so far.

 

Micheal not only reached his fundraising goals but overshot it thrice!

Two Cents of Hope participated in the Relay 2015 in order to give a bright future to the underprivileged children in India

The Two Cents of Hope (TCH) is a registered non-profit organization aimed at facilitating education for underprivileged children and youth in India. It was founded by a group of graduate students at North Carolina State University in 2005. 
The Challenge:  
"Two cents of Hope"  took part in the Golden Gate Relay. The Relay is a one-of-a-kind event where groups of 12 runners conquer 200 miles non-stop from Napa Valley to Santa Cruz. They urged everyone to donate at least two cents for every mile they ran and give hope to the cause. But not many were supporting the cause, in the beginning, maybe because they didn't know what this campaign meant to the talented children and how could it change their lives?
 
So we figured out a way
We realized this campaign as an opportunity to bring inclusiveness among all in order to gain maximum support. Our customer support mean worked back n forth to do everything necessary for making the cause known among the masses.
 
"Two cents of hope" literally crushed it by raising 122% of the goal amount! From our end, these are areas we supported them with:

They allow you to change your target and extend your deadlines and let you keep whatever you’ve collected. For a first-time producer like me, all these were huge benefits. Crowdera has shown great ownership for my campaign and their support is impeccable. ”.

Neelima Mishra's Arctic Expedition to fight against climate change

Neelima Mishra, a super-active campaigner involved in raising awareness on single-use plastic-free living. Neelima Mishra was the only Indian participant selected from the state of Odisha for the 'Leadership on the Edge Program' which is a part of the Climate Force Arctic Expedition led by Sir Robert Swan.
 
The Challenge:  

Climate change has the potential to derail growth strategies and deepen poverty apart from loss of life, livelihood, assets, and infrastructure.

In one of her articles, Neelima mentioned that climate change has a special relevance for Odisha because of its location and geophysical conditions. Apart from the devastating super cyclone in 1999, repeatedly, Odisha has been facing intense tropical cyclones — the most recent being Daye and Titli. Not to forget the intense and unprecedented heat waves that claim many casualties. All these conditions led Neelima to step up and act upon the necessity of the situation. Getting selected among the team of 80 people in the "Leadership on the Edge" program, was in itself an achievement but she was facing a shortage of funds to make it her reality. 

How did we tackle it?
Neelima's mission was for a greater good, which was even beyond her own self. It's rare to see someone so motivated and having the drive from within, to do everything possible in order to make the change happen.
 
On day 65, Nileema Mishra raised 114% of her goal amount. And here is how we made it happen:

Kota mayor's son decides to dedicate his wedding gift towards the infrastructural improvement of government schools in the city

Ayush is the son of the Mayor of Kota, he is an IITian with the heart of a philanthropist.  He had his wedding procession in a rickshaw, wedding attire taken on rent. This wedding happened without grandeur or any splendid display was organized.  to donate the saved money to the government schools for girls in Kota. On this occasion, Ayush along with his to-be-wife Ishita decided to create a campaign on Crowdera to raise funds for Infrastructural improvement of Government Schools in Kota.

The Challenge:  

Ayush and his wife-to-be Ishita are changing the conventional methods of the wedding ceremony. Usually, people end up spending on everything related to their wedding, whether it's a pre-wedding shoot, designer fancy clothes, a big party arrangement with all sorts of decorations, but what actually happens with all these expensive items, just on next day of the grand ceremony is a different level discussion. 

On the contrary to the conventional methods, on this occasion, Ayush along with his to-be-wife Ishita decided to raise funds for Infrastructural improvement of Government Schools in Kota.

 
We thought:
Well, we thought of making it happen to encourage more people like Ayush and Ishita. This couple sets an example for our entire generation to look at this unique way which most of us can actually adopt. Imagine a day when a lot of people start believing in giving back to the community and make our social fabric much more closely knit than ever before. This campaign and it's unique vision intended to do the same.
 
Ayush realized 109% of his goal amount. This is all we provided him to reach there.

shloka_missionaries_crowdera

Shloka Missionaries educated over 200 underprivileged children from rural areas.

Sandeep Desai, a former marine engineer, and academician is a resident of Goregaon and the famous Mumbai man who begged on local trains to start rural English medium schools across villages in Maharashtra, Rajasthan, and Bihar. He established Shloka Missionaries to support underprivileged children.
 
I was told that as per the Railway act, I could not collect funds, but when I responded by saying that, ‘I do not plead guilty!’ the judge looked up and recognized me. I told them that I am not a beggar. By definition, a beggar begs for himself, but I am begging for charity, so I will not plead guilty for doing my bit for the sake of education of underprivileged students who deserve it,” says Desai.
 
The Challenge:  

Sometimes while working for a big cause, you don't even imagine the small hindrances until they meet you up in your journey. The major challenge faced by Shloka Missionaries now was to convince the parents to send their children to school.

The parents of these children were far from a financial state of bearing the overall costs which would come along with sending their children to school. The expenses of books, stationery, and other supplies were impossible for them to bear. To overcome this scenario, Shloka Missionaries promised to provide stationery, books, notebooks, and other supplies to all its students. The cost per student was estimated to be around Rs. 4,500 ($65) per year, which in turn was a huge challenge for them to deliver upon. 

 
We couldn't agree more

Sandeep realized that crowdfunding could be the best way to help these children in today's time. And, we thought of letting the word out in a way that would propel everyone to participate and contribute towards this campaign, as, this campaign was to change as many student's lives as possible, for better.

SHLOKA MISSIONARIES raised 90% of their funds in the first few weeks. We devised the strategies and we were blown away by the virality, this campaign got in no time. So, here is all we did:

Sandeep was able to deliver the promise he made to the children's parents and took one more step towards making his dream a reality.
 
“If they cannot treat them as their children, the least they can do is treat them on par with them. Why are we blatantly denying equal opportunities to children based on the background he/she comes from? If they want them to have the same opportunities to work at the state, national or international level, they should get the same kind of education. It does not matter whether they work on a farm or an MNC, education is their basic right, and we are bound to help them access it,” Sandeep says

A step towards providing better infrastructure to the government schools

Sanjana Sashtri, a 21-year-old girl, who is pursuing pharmacy in Manipal, Karnataka came to us to support building better toilets at the Zila parishad school in Maharashtra.

The Challenge:  
An Education Ministry data says, 65.2% (113 million,) of all school students in 20 states go to government schools. These include schools runs by the state and local government as well as the central government. Yes, if you look at it first, you can see a good number of government schools present in India but do you really know the real condition of these schools?
 
I spoke to the school and found out that many students missed days at school in the monsoon and for reasons of basic hygiene. They also told me that the students had to get water to drink and wash and use in the bathroom from village wells that were quite far away. So while I wanted to rebuild the toilets for the girls”, says Sanjana. 

 

What did we do?
Looking at the current situation of these schools, we immediately started putting all our efforts into supporting Sanjana. 
 
We proudly supported Sanjana for taking this responsible step, Here is all that we did:

Making menstrual health and hygiene a taboo free subject in India

 

Geeta Bora, a 39-year-old was a well-settled software professional in US. Upon one of her holiday trips to India in 2016, the state of women's menstrual health in the country rattled her out of her comfort zone as she found her mission in life. 

 

The Challenge

“We live in a country where 88% of the menstruating women depend on unhygienic alternatives like cloth piece, sand, newspaper, husk, etc. Women don’t feel comfortable talking about something as natural as sweating or breathing. Menstruation is not a sin, curse or disease; instead, it is a life-giving process. It is neither a dirty word nor a taboo", says Geeta

 

We analyzed the scenario carefully

In India, 23 Million women drop out of school every year when they start menstruating and this happens majorly due to lack of awareness on the topic. Geeta wanted to run a nationwide campaign to create awareness and bring the needed change in the social fabric of the country.

 

The team worked in 11 states of India simultaneously in an attempt to make a Guinness world record, here is what we did

Higher cost of education - One of the greatest obstacles in escaping poverty!

 

Umang is a secular, non-profitable Organization, registered under the Mumbai Trust act no. E-25633(M). They have been in the process of raising resources to protect the rights of India’s underprivileged and provide relief to them. Umang aimed to reach out to the needy and bring about a difference in their lives, spreading awareness and imparting education.

 

The Challenge

Umang looked forward to becoming a shareholder of 35 super-cute smiles. They decided to provide education to 35 students for free. But free education from Umang Learning Centre to these slum children came at the cost of the monthly rental, monthly salary of Rs. 10,000 to 2 teachers each for teaching 52 hours in a month (Mon-sat, 2 hours), the monthly electricity bill and quarterly water bill.

Then comes the monthly stationery (Pen, Pencil, Rubbers, and notebooks) which Umang Learning center provided to slum children.

The total cost incurred to approx. INR 80,000 for 2 months. 

 

We took this opportunity to our heart

To educate is to reduce poverty and change lives forever. It is one of the elements which indicates a major difference between a "Developed" and a "Developing Nation". It is only through education, a nation becomes competent and self-sustainable.  

Umang with its 6 go-getter teams, raised 106% of the goal amount and we did the following to give this campaign the right push:

No Dream left unrealized due to shortage of money

 

Pragyan,  a passionate social impact professional hailing from a beautiful village called Dompada in Odisha, an eastern Indian state. She worked on programs aiming towards developing the skills of underprivileged youth in India that would, in turn, enable them to get meaningful livelihood opportunities. 

The Challenge

Pragyan grew up with a great awareness of the massive inequality faced by women.

"In India, the sex ratio is around 893 women per 1000 men which is low. Also, the percentage of women joining formal education is much lower than men and many girls drop-out from school after puberty due to various reasons. The representation of women in the employed population of India is also very low- around 25%,"  says Pragyan


 All of these factors motivate her to work for women. She wanted to work for women who are strong and determined.

 

We found her cause aligned with our values 

No one can unsee the reality of gender inequality in India. And knowing Prgyan was knowing someone who actually wants to devote her life to provide equal opportunity and the much-needed support to the women-led enterprises.

 

Pragyan's motivation was to use her learnings at LSE to support and accelerate the growth of women-led social enterprises and here is what we did :
