Using PulseWire to Fundraise

Hey Katina,
Congratulations on opening your shop! Have you explored the Resource Exchange? In the Resource Exchange on PulseWire, you can post needs and learn about resources and opportunities being offered from around the world.

Go to Resource Exchange: http://www.worldpulse.com/pulsewire/exchange/ and post your request for funding or other resources. Again, include as much information about yourself and your organization as you can so that other members of our community feel compelled to connect with you and share their ideas and resources.

Also, we have produced a toolkit for fundraising, available in the Sharing Solutions section: http://www.worldpulse.com/pulsewire/solutions/41528

Let us know if you have any questions or if you have any success from PulseWire!

we are busy

Dear Breese
We have the shop and most of the crafts but we start slowly,there is still many things to ad.I start with acommunity project and now I am at this shop still working in the community.40 women still meet every morning to make there crafts in an Informal settlements in some countries called squatercamps and its very hard to get funding and investments,at this this moment I am busy with our year plan which I will send to most of the adresses I find through Worlpulse in the meantime private people can contact me because any contribution can help.For now we need at least 14000.00U$ to make things up and run.
