Groupizo Event: Keep Wikipedia Online and Ad-Free

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 10, 2013

Small non-profit Wikipedia put out a request for donations to keep the website, ranked #5 in the world, in business without ad revenue or government funds. Izo responds with a Groupizo fundraiser for Wikipedia fans and others who seek to protect the independence of this online resource. 100% of profits from the sale of the Save Wikipedia tees will go directly to the non-profit, keeping Wikipedia online and ad-free for another year.

Wikipedia provides a free, invaluable online resource and relies entirely on public funding to keep its 150 staff serving 450 million users. Like any other top site, it must pay for servers, power, programs, and the aforementioned staff. Izo Brands’ Groupizo platform proves a perfect fit for this endeavor and similar fundraising needs. The zero overhead, zero production costs, and zero risk design and sell platform takes the headache out of fundraising for any nonprofit.

In addition to removing the risk from fundraising with branded apparel or custom promotional products, Groupizo provides an effortless way to collect funds for any type of organization without expending resources or taking time away from routine staff duties - crucial for nonprofits. It’s simple: after choosing event parameters such as event duration and selling price, distribution of the event’s unique URL via avenues such as Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, other social media, and email remains the only task left to ensure fundraising success. At the close of the event, orders will be produced and shipped individually to purchasers, eliminating the need for fundraisers to carry inventory and distribute the final product themselves.

One can even create a Groupizo event with multiple custom products to reach every possible supporter. For example, customized t-shirts, tote bags, and hoodies could all be featured in the same event.

Please take a minute to check out Groupizo’s Wikipedia fundraiser and keep this website which is akin to “a library or a public park... a temple for the mind, a place where we can all go to think and learn” independent, alive, advertisement-free, and non-government funded for another year.
