BUSTED: Top 5 Crowdfunding Myths

This is our “What to expect when crowdfunding” guide that will help make your crowdfunding experience a much more enjoyable one.


Random Acts Of Kindness = Happiness

We all know how one-kind-deed-a-day is supposed to spread happiness and smiles. But did you know that random acts of kindness also make the performer happy?

3 ways to giving back to society

We all are busy with our lives, set in our routines. Most of our time is taken up by trying to gather resources to pays our bills. This often means we are left with no time and energy to pursue any of our passions or to support the social causes we believe in.

A Shakey Table Situation

The Shakey Tables, a NYC funk rock band, is hosting its third annual benefit for New York Cares Coat Drive, this time adding a crowdfunding campaign on Crowdera to help boost donations.

The benefit show will take place on November 21, 2014 at 7:30pm at Bowery Electric, 327 Bowery, New York, NY. The cover charge will be waived for patrons that bring coats to donate to New York Cares’ annual coat drive, and The Shakey Tables will donate 100% of its proceeds from ticket sales/cover charges to benefit New York Cares. The Shakey Tables’ performance will feature songs from their new album, A Shakey Table Situation, among other favorites. Bowery Electric will also donate a portion of their bar revenue to the drive.

Life Vest’s 3rd Annual WorldWide Dance for Kindness

This year marks Life Vest Inside’s 3rd Annual WorldWide Dance for Kindness event taking place in 80 cities, spanning across 30 countries!

A month ago, Orly and her volunteers had a crazy idea to create an official song for Dance for Kindness. So what did they do? They reached out to four artists and asked them to come up with an original song that embodies the purpose of DFK! What they got back was absolutely AMAZING! The next step-choosing the song.

LVI in all about including their fans and supporters so they posted the songs and had this year’s awesome line up of Group Leaders from across the globe vote as to which song would be the official #DFK2014 FlashMob Song!

Votes were cast and this year’s WorldWide DFK song was chosen!

LVI is asking for your help to make this year’s #dfk2014 a huge success. We are coming to you, our family, friends, supporters and beyond to take part in helping produce the best DFK song and to rally for kindness.

Check out last year’s DFK video and see how an act of kindness can unite people around the globe. Visit lifevestinside.com/crowdera and click Support This Project to help Orly and her volunteers reach their goal!
