CROWDFUNDING EXPERT WITH A SOFT SPOT FOR MENTAL HEALTH
I have a passion for helping non-profits and entrepreneurs succeed in crowdfunding. My experience spans from crowdfunding on the CaringCrowd platform, raising over $40,000 for the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). As well as Kickstarter, raising over $5,000 for my Paleo muffin company LIFT Protein Muffins.
My Crowdfunding Experience
I have been crowdfunding since 2015. To date, I have raised over $45,000 in crowdfunding for for-profits and non-profits.
LIFT Protein Muffins
My first campaign was for my Paleo muffin company, LIFT Protein Muffins. I raised over $5,000 on Kickstarter, doubling my target amount.
National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) – New Jersey
In 2018 I lost my close family friend, Louis who had bi-polar and schizoaffective disorder. In his memory, I set out to launch a project on CaringCrowd for NAMI NJ in honor of Louis with the goal to raise $9,500 in 30 days for the NAMI Basics Program, which would support 360 parents with children who have a mental illness. Within 2 ½ weeks I hit my goal of $9,500.
National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) – El Dorado
Five months later, with mental health awareness month coming up I decided to raise 30K to support 600 families with someone in their family going through mental illness for NAMI El Dorado. In three weeks I hit my goal of $30,000.
