Like a lump of gold, the kernel of money can be increased towards a grand sum which grows exponentially. One merely has to add to it. As a sapling planted into the ground, it can be watered and given sunlight which encourages it to strive towards the great and endless sky. At the beginning of the year, start with one dollar which can become the kernel of the year long fundraiser. Add to this humble amount by doubling it and at the end of the year, see how much the money grew. One way of doing this is to double the money every day of the whole calendar year. So one dollar becomes two, then four, then eight dollars. One can have different teams working on this as well and can find organizations willing to match it. Make plans by making a comprehensive budget which will indicate what amount one must make that day. One must also make sure it is in a safe place and record the daily amount on a daily basis. There are many creative ways of making this fundraiser work. Make big goals.
This is how it looks like:
January 1:$1, January 2:$2, January 3:$4, January 4:$8, January 5:$16, etc.
