Many of us can get toa time in our lives where we have a situation we are faced with that changes us. It might be an illness, something you go through as a family, or a loss of someone too soon. Often that can give you the sense of determination to raise awareness for a subject, and this is how so many charities and amazing things are started from. You might be in this situation right now, maybe you feel like you want to have a voice. I thought I would share with you some of the steps you can take to start your own message and charity.

Know your vision and intention

One of the first things you need to think about would be to think about what your vision for the charity is, and your intention and long term goals about what you want to achieve. Knowing how you want to raise awareness, what message you want people to hear, and even how you might go about it is a great way to ensure you do things justice, if only for yourself.

You need a name

The next thing you might want to start thinking about would be the name of your charity. Perhaps you want to use your very motivation for starting the charity as a point to begin creating the name. Name itself can be a great thing to consider. People like to know what the charity is about, or who it is aid of perhaps, so if you do have a motivation that stems from someone perhaps using their name would be the ideal way to celebrate them.

Think of ways for contributions

There are so many ways people could donate, so you need to decide what areas you want to be associated with. There are just giving pages and even things like global faces direct monthly giving programs for non profits that could be worth looking into. You may also want to think of organised sponsorships where people do certain things for the charity. These can be small things or stem to bigger adventures such as climbing mountains. The world is your oyster for your charity and you just need to decide how far you want to go.

Write a plan

Part of your plan may have already formed in your head. You could have considered your visions and what is driving you to make a difference, your message and even how you want people to be able to get involved. But you also need to treat this in a business like manner and this is when a plan can be put into place to get things moving.

Create a website and register where needed

Finally, you can start by creating your website and social media platforms, which is a great way to get your message heard. However, you do also need to think about how you register your charity to be official and for non profit.

I hope that this has inspired you to take the right steps to creating your charity and to get your message heard.
