Many people know of Indiegogo as the platform used for more than 100,000 cause-related, creative or entrepreneurial campaigns, including raising money for areas such as music, charity, film and Veteran small business. To run a successful campaign one needs to first reach out to family and friends to pitch their idea or cause.
An example of an extremely worthy pitch was recently started by Members of SPECIAL FORCES to honor memory of SGT Timothy Padgett. His team was unable to compete during the 2012 Eglin AFB Gate to Gate run due to military obligations. This May the team will represent 7th Special Forces Group and compete in the “Gate to Gate 4.4 Mile Race”. They will dedicate their performance to one of their fallen teammates, SGT Timothy Padgett a Special Forces Medical Sergeant, who sustained a fatal gunshot wound while conducting combat operations in Afghanistan. Go to Indiegogo to support them any way you can and while you’re there learn about using crowdfunding for your business idea. Click here for one of our heroes, SGT Timothy Padgett
