How do I raise money for my cause?

Where do the funds I raise go?
We attach a source code to each fund to ensure that the money you raise goes to the area of need you want to support. For example, if you are raising money to build houses, funds will be directed to housing. If a need isn’t specified, money will go to our general fund.
