Here's a few ideas to help with your friendraising:
- Sign up to Twitter
Twitter is a fantastic way to keep on top of what is happening in your area of interest - whether that be saving animals, ending poverty or stopping global warming. There is no end of interesting people to follow and its a great way to build a digital network of friends to spread the word for your cause.

- Be an active participant in online forums
Joining online forums and groups is another effective way to friendraise for your cause. Remember that its not enough to just join - you need to join in. Contribute to the conversation, share ideas, talk about the issues that move you. Don't be shy!!
Care2 is a great starting place for networking with other passionate activists and givers for a whole range of causes.
- Link to other sites/blogs/fundraising pages
Want to get your name out there? Comment on other people's blogs and websites in your area of interest, include links to other people's sites and articles, be a contributing member of the WWW.
It may sound mercenary and feel a little shallow at first, but its all about building community and you can't do that without participating in the conversations that are out there!
