WHY HELP OTHERS.org seeks crowd funding to produce expo for non-profits
convention & expo for non-profit agencies.
Our non-profit organization is Why Help Others. Our mission is to raise awareness for ALL the causes there are in today's world. One way we want to do this is by producing a convention & expo/fair for approximately 100 non-profits organizations across the nation. The expo/fair will be open to the public and the property we have chosen can accommodate up to 10,000 guests in one event day. If we surpass our funding goal, we can choose a larger venue and invite even more non-profits. The more, the better!
This is only a small sample of what we are coordinating.
There will be approximately 100 display booths educating guests
about the different non-profits and their cause(s).
In addition to the below, we will have raffles, games, various safety demonstrations, etc.
Our plan is to set-up the expo/fair like a theme park,
with a map provided upon entry and a schedule of events “around the park”.
Each “donation station” and drive will be sponsored by a non-profit organization(
For example, “Doggie wash & dry proceeds to Friends of Greyhounds.
Reaching our goal of $1,225 will help nourish rescued greyhounds
for 1 month in our local kennel.
Greyhounds on site available for adoption – see pet play area.”

At the end of the day, organizations will turn in their play currency for
a real donation check to take home to their charity. No minimum required.
What our first funder had to say:
“I have always been a big advocate for volunteering, but I've always had to do tons of research to find causes I felt were near to my heart. With this WHY HELP OTHERS EXPO/FAIR, all the work comes to me – the opportunity to browse over a 100 different causes in 1 location while having tons of fun. I cannot wait for this event to take place & I hope that you will help this dream come true for people like me. I am proudly donating my own funds & time.” -Kem
