‘Actions speak louder than words…’ and that is exactly what JustGiving allows you to do. As a start-up that can use all the exposure and funding it can get, we were amazed to see the big positive effects of the platform on the growth of our organization.
Our membership to the platform (in the Netherlands and the UK) is only a few months old and already we have two great stories to share:
After registering with JustGiving in the Netherlands, we were honored with the action page of Marc Wiggers. Marc is a bright lawyer who – on top of having a very demanding career – also managed to obtain his PhD in Law.
In honor of his PhD defense, promotion and publication, Marc organized a dinner followed by a big party in Amsterdam. Not only did Marc donate the publishing royalties of his book to AsWeGrow, he also asked for all his invitees to donate their gift-money to us. Marc’s JustGiving page was made an integral part of his invitation and we are happy to write that many people donated. We exceeded our fundraising target and raised a massive amount which allowed us to officially give the ‘go’ for the construction of our first classrooms.
Another heroic JustGiving story is about Australian born, London Product Manager: Nathan Westgarth – for us a sportsman extra-ordin
In return for this jaw-droppi
Marc and Nathan, we are very grateful to have been made such an integral part of your accomplishments via JustGiving in both the Netherlands as well as the UK. You truly are AsWeGrow – heroes!
