Referral Codes 
GiveSendGo's latest release features a new referral code project that allows campaign managers to create a custom referral code to track where givers found the campaign and how they clicked on it. The feature is a great way to test different outreach strategies and increase donations to your campaign.

Why You Should Be A Giver In Life

By: Alex Shipley on | Comments: 0

At GiveSendGo, we believe that giving is one of the most powerful things that you can do in life. When you give to others, you not only make a positive impact on their lives but also on your own. It's amazing how one small act of kindness can brighten someone's day, and that's why we encourage everyone to be a giver.

One of the great things about GiveSendGo is that we make it easy for you to give to those in need. When you find or know of a person or cause you want to support you can give! But we don't just stop there. We also encourage people to share the campaigns they create with their friends, family, community, and church. When you share a campaign, you're spreading awareness to your circle (who are the most likely people to give to your campaign) and potentially reaching more people who are willing to help. Plus, when you support others, you set a great example for others to follow.

Being a giver in life doesn't just benefit those around you; it also benefits you. When you give to others, you become more grateful for what you have, and you develop a sense of empathy and compassion. Moreover, people are more likely to reciprocate kindness when they see it. When you're a giver in life, you're more likely to receive that same kind of treatment from others, meaning that the possibility of receiving more donations to your campaign increases.

At GiveSendGo, we're always inspired by the generosity of our community. Whether it's supporting a campaign, sharing it with others, or just spreading kindness, we're amazed by the power of giving. So we encourage you to be a giver in life. It doesn't matter how big or small your gift is; every act of kindness counts. And that’s the whole point of crowdfunding! A large number of people coming together with their smaller donations to make a huge impact! By giving to others, you not only make the world a better place, but you also make your own life better too.

Alaska!: The Most Generous State on GiveSendGo in March

By: Alex Shipley on | Comments: 1

As the sun rises over the rugged terrain of Alaska, we’re proud to announce that the Last Frontier has emerged as the most generous state on GiveSendGo! Yep, you heard us right - Alaska isn’t only the largest state in the USA but also the most giving in the month of March when it comes to supporting important causes and campaigns on GiveSendGo.

According to the latest data, Alaska ranked first in terms of both quantity and dollars donated per capita on GiveSendGo. This means Alaskans donated the highest amount of money per person compared to any other state in the country. Isn't that incredible?

So, what makes Alaska such a generous state? Some might say it's the breathtaking natural beauty of the state that inspires people to be more giving. Others might point to the spirit of community that runs deep in the state's culture. Whatever the reason may be, one thing’s clear - Alaskans have a big heart and a giving spirit. Sounds like our kind of people! 

On GiveSendGo, Alaskans have come together to support a wide range of causes, from disaster relief efforts to community-building projects, and everything in between. It's heartwarming to see how the people of Alaska have rallied together to make a difference in the lives of others.
As we celebrate Alaska's generosity, we’re reminded of the power of giving. Giving isn’t just about making a financial contribution; it's about making a positive impact in the world. It's about coming together as a community to help those in need, and in doing so, creating a better future for all. And ANYONE can make a difference! Even you! 

So, here's a shoutout to the people of Alaska - thank you for your generosity, your spirit of community, and your commitment to making the world a better place. You’re an inspiration to us all, and we’re proud to have you as part of the GiveSendGo family.
