Crowd Sourced Lobbying

Crowd Sourced Lobbying | Crowdfunding, Giving Days, and Social Fundraising for Nonprofits | Scoop.it
ur startup has built a new social activism platform that gives people the power to influence government:
Amplifyd is a crowdsourced lobbying platform where people can support causes in their community and in return get a personal representative that will call and lobby their elected officials on their behalf.  
Each campaign is managed by non-profits fighting for important causes, giving these organizations an additional way to mobilize their communities and generate active and passive incomes.  
And, anyone can sign up to become a crowdsourced caller, getting paid to lobby elected officials for others. This is especially great for college students, post-grads, activists, hourly or part-time employees needing an additional source of income and avid travelers, since people can make calls through our platform from anywhere. 
Amplifyd will change the political status quo in the United States, but only if people know this tool is available to them. This is where I need your help!
Would you be interested in covering this story?  Let me know and I can give you more details upon request and even take you on a tour of the platform next week before it goes live to the public.

Sign up to support a cause in your community, become a lobbyist and make calls for others, or start campaign and generate revenue for your activist organization.

ALS group moves to trademark “ice bucket challenge” viral sensation

ALS group moves to trademark “ice bucket challenge” viral sensation | Crowdfunding, Giving Days, and Social Fundraising for Nonprofits | Scoop.it
ALS Association didn't create the wacky fundraising idea, but it wants to own it.
Beth Kanter's insight:

It's great news for a worthy charity, but the cause has led to an unfortunate legal move. The ALS Association has filed an application with the US Patent and Trademark Office seeking to trademark the term "ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE" for use in charitable fundraising. If successful, that would allow the ALS Association to stop other charities from using the phrase for their own fundraising.

Robert Paterson's Weblog: Crowd Funding - Kickstarter and Indiegogo - An "Old Pro's" guide to success and failure

Robert Paterson's Weblog: Crowd Funding - Kickstarter and Indiegogo - An "Old Pro's" guide to success and failure | Crowdfunding, Giving Days, and Social Fundraising for Nonprofits | Scoop.it
We got notice that Indiegogo has disbursed the funds today and Raymond Loo's campaign is now really over with the goal of $12,000 fully realized. This work is not easy. It is not as simple as filling in the blanks...
Beth Kanter's insight:

It's ALL about the inner network - People like Raymond have a small group of people who are close to him who love him and in turn have their own network. Think of petals on a flower. Their networks branch out - they touch each other but are largely different. The key is to know these people and to work with them well before you launch. Bring them into the planning. THEY do most of the lifting. And it they who you have to pay a lot of attention.
