I was recently asked by Geoff Livingston, co-founder of Zoetica, to join a new council of do-gooders called ‘zooGooders: we are a group of bloggers and non-profit professionals who are testing a new widget from Razoo, an online fundraising site, that allows you to complete an entire transaction within the frame of the widget, on your website or blog. It can be customized with a logo or photos, cause background, and even the donation levels. Another plus: Razoo takes one of the lowest transaction fees (2.9%), lower than Global Giving, Causes, or Crowdrise.
On our first ‘zooGooders call, it was clear that each person was selected for different reasons – and it’s a mighty fine council at that. The reach, skills, and expertise of the group, not to mention the causes we’re all supporting, makes it diverse and strong – and I’m excited to share experiences and suggestions, and brainstorm together about fundraising through new technology. Along with our weekly calls featuring experts in our field, we’ll also be hosting a weekly Twitterchat that anyone can join in. Check #zooGood to be a part of the conversation!
Excited to move forward with ‘zooGooders!
