This is how it all started…

Little did I know that this thought would change my life.

I searched online and I found out that fundraising platforms are based on challenges and special events such as skydiving and marathons.

Most charity websites promote fundraising events among friends. So, I decided to organise a BBQ and my offline fundraising journey began…

A fundraising pack includes forms that need to be signed by the fundraiser and the donors. But to receive it can take one to two weeks.

Except from the forms, the fundraising pack also included a donation box, a few balloons, some paper invitations and other promotional material.

Except from the forms, most of the fundraising pack ended up in the recycle bin. Then I texted my friends to invite them to my BBQ.

During the BBQ we had to spend so much time filling in forms instead of having fun. Quite the hassle…

The next day I had to wake up an hour earlier in order to run to the post and send the donations and the forms to the charity.

That was the moment I came up with the idea of simplifying fundraising and Chatraise was born.

Chatraise is the only app in the world that can turn any casual outing with friends into a fundraising event without any need to run marathons or fill fundraising forms…
