The new concept, domestic online fundraising is gaining traction but there are still too many small charities out there that are not in the loop of modern fundraising. China is like that- ahead of the curve on many technological changes, but behind the wall on things we take for granted. Many charities just don't have the self confidence to play in the shiny new sandpit which is online fundraising.
Sweeten the Pot creates an added incentive to participate; coaxing them with the promise of a matching donation for every rmb they raise locally on line. And it works!
Teaching them a lesson
This Christmas 10 small charities offering a range of services to those left behind by the extraordinary changes in China, will learn that they can raise funds on line, and your donation will be the encouragement they need to try!
Judging by previous appeals, we expect that every coin you give will raise a FURTHER 1.5 coins locally.
These are the projects that you will be helping
if you “sweeten the pot”.
There are fuller descriptions (in Chinese) as well as, for those who use “Wechat”, an opportunity to donate to individual projects here
