5 Essentials for an Effective Story

An effective story informs and inspires. Here's what you should include:
Introduce yourself
Your friends know you, but a bigger audience may not.
Introduce your cause
Describe your cause, its importance, the people involved, and what you're trying to achieve.
Say what the money is for
Explain how the money you raise will be used. Give details. They build trust.
Ask for help
Ask people to contribute money and share your campaign. If you don't ask, people won't act.
Be personal, detailed and optimistic
People respond to authenticity, information, and hope. Your job is to provide them.
You can edit your story ANY time.
