Sydney, NSW (PRWEB) July 29, 2014
30 Seconds Change, a new social enterprise, announced today the launch of their crowd funding campaign on Indiegogo.com (http://www.30secondschange.com/indiegogo). The funds raised, will be used to launch the 30 Seconds Change charity fund raising platform, enabling people to raise money for their favourite charities simply by watching 30 seconds of video advertising on their mobile phone.
Launching simultaneously in the United States and Australia, 30 Seconds Change has agreements in place with three of Australia's largest and best known charities. They expect to finalise agreements with a further eight Australian as well as ten US charities at the completion of the crowd funding campaign. Users can select to support charities covering the spectrum of causes from humanitarian aid, disaster relief, poverty, hunger, gender equality, education, science and medical research, conservation and animal welfare.
"Charities are sometimes forced to spend as much as 48% of their revenue on fund raising activities" said 30 Seconds Change founder Andrew Wilkinson. "The 30 Seconds Change app will provide our charity partners with an efficient, complementary funding stream, without asking their supporters to reach into their own pockets."
Using Indiegogo’s all-or-nothing fund raising option, 30 Seconds Change aims to raise $90,000 in 30 days for the project to go ahead. The platform itself will launch in December 2014.
