We want to make the dreams of one million kids come true!

CALLING ALL YOUNG PEOPLE (18 and under) WITH A DREAM!

DO YOUR DREAM NOW! YOU DON'T HAVE TO WAIT!

What do we do? We are a safe, online crowdfunding / fundraising platform for ages 18 and under. On our site, you can create a fundraising campaign to help you raise money for your dream.

If you don't know what crowdfunding means, think of it this way: Crowd - which can be family and friends as well as strangers. Funding - donating money to your dream idea to help you make your fundraising goal! Crowdfunding is just another term for online fundraising.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE:

What is your innovative vision, business idea, or life dream? What do you need to support it? How much funding do you think you need? What makes this vision or dream something that others might want to support? In other words, what makes you passionate about it and why is it important to you? These are some good questions you want to have answers for as you start your fundraising campaign. On our site, it is FREE to create a fundraising campaign so there is no risk for trying!

Here are Some Examples For Which You May Want/Need to Raise Money:

  • Supplies, an instrument, a class, contest or fair.
  • An invention, innovation or something that can improve a situation.
  • Starting a cause, benefit, non-profit or drive to help someone or a group of people.
  • Start your own business or create your own product or service.

THE POSSIBILITIES ARE LIMITED ONLY TO YOUR IMAGINATION!
