What is a twask? "Well....just as a small message is a tweet, a twask is simply a small request for help" according to Gene Smith, founder and CEO at Twask.com a leading peer to peer fundraising site.
Twask began as an idea to bring people together to help one another. "We felt that there were enough charities and organizations taking on the major world problems such as hunger, the environment, and disease. However, most people need help with life's everyday problems such as paying an unexpected medical bill or trying to save up to go to school" commented Smith, "we wanted to create a place where anyone could go and ask for help."
In addition to being able to ask for help, users at Twask are provided a number of tools to help create, promote, and manage their fundraising efforts. Features included in the just re-launched website include:
- free individual donation webpages
- automatic integration with PayPal for donation processing
- complete suite of reports on activity, donations, etc.
- free widgets to include in emails and websites
- tools to promote webpage via major social media outlets like facebook and twiiter
"Promotion is the key", added Smith, " our successful users are those that have a good cause, can communicate that cause effectively, and then have a strong social network in which they can promote their project page.
Unlike other sites, there are few limitations as to what type of project you can setup a fundraiser for and you do not have to meet any goal or quota in order to receive your donations. "All donations are received immediately by our users, we do not hold any funds for any reason" stated Smith.
There is no charge for opening an account and there is never any charge for donating to any of the projects or twasks. "We encourage everyone to look around the site, research into any of the twasks, and support those that you feel are worthy.", added Smith, " we have a wide variety of projects from help with debt to birthday wishes to help wedding costs."
Twask began as an idea to bring people together so that they could help one another. By utilizing social media and crowdfunding technology, individuals can raise funds for almost any project or need. Twask is the world's leading platform or website for peer to peer fundraising.
