Tired of Old-Fashioned Candy Bar, Magazine and Door-to-Door Fundraisers?
NEW YORK – March 07, 2011
ContestCause, a Long Island based startup, is pleased to announce the Beta launch of its website http://www.ContestCause.com. The website enables PTAs, groups, teams, classes or any organization to run their own fundraising design contest. They even give you your own web address!
ContestCause is fundraising – with a twist. By combining social networking, fundraising, and custom apparel, ContestCause brings the fundraising model into the Facebook era.
Once a fundraising contest is created:
• Friends are invited to create t-shirt designs, using a specialized online design tool.
• Friends can vote daily for their favorite design - the winner is turned into a custom shirt by ContestCause.
• Anyone can order the winning t-shirt to support the fundraiser.
It takes just minutes to set up and it's free to join or run a t-shirt design contest.
ContestCause keeps the power of fundraising in the hands of the organizer, while removing the burden of collecting money and forms, organizing groups and distributing merchandise to supporters.
ContestCause is the brainchild of three Internet industry pioneers with a passion for using the web to serve communities. With the launch of ContestCause, they have enabled individuals and groups to rally fundraising support with friendly peer-to-peer competition and spirit-building custom apparel.
In the words of Gina Kearney, CEO & Co-Founder, "Give one person a shirt, and they'll thank you. Give a group matching shirts and they'll wear them with pride, unity and gratitude for the event that brought them together – and beyond."
ContestCause.com has already been featured on 94X Radio, KillerStartUps, and VolunteerSpot.
