That simple request started a wave of e-mails that spread not only to our community but throughout the United States. The proof that we had uncovered a concept that was easy and that worked was that the soccer fundraisers sold wine to people they didn't know, in states they had never visited! This guerilla marketing meets social networking was easy, effective and profitable. In less than 2 1/2 weeks, the soccer club raised $3,330 and they never left their computer, never washed a car, nor had a door slammed in their face when they approached with a box of candy or wrapping paper.
This is the premise that led to the founding of GotCause - a local community marketplace where day-to-day consumer spending at local businesses creates funding for local causes - all in a safe and secure environment.
GotCause is made up of three major elements: buyers, merchants, and fundraisers. Each cause provides the binding for the GotCause community via social networking.
