Twask, the leading peer to peer fundraising site, announced today the launch of their updated website which allows users to create, publish, promote, and collect funds for personal projects or needs.
Twask began in 2010 as an idea to bring people together so that they could help one another. By utilizing social media and crowdfunding technology,
individuals can raise funds for almost any project or need. People have successfully raised funds for things such as medical bills, debt consolidation, wedding costs and family emergencies.
What is the meaning of the word “twask”? “It’s pretty simple”, replied founder Gene Smith, “just as a small message is called a tweet, we call a small request for help a twask”. Twask was created to give
people the tools to help one another. The typical scenario is simple and straightforward. A user can setup an account and publish a personal appeal or page in a few minutes. There is no cost to join or to
setup up a page. Along with the personal appeal page, the user receives donor tracking, reports, and widgets to help promote his/her page via major social media outlets like twitter and facebook. With a little promotion,
the user begins receiving donations and the funds are deposited directly to the users’ PayPal account.
“We differ from some of the other crowdfunding sites in that we never hold any funds” added Smith, “we do not use the “all or nothing” goal model or hold funds for any reason. It goes to the user’s account the moment it is donated.”
Twask has a wide mix of projects. Each project is review and approved prior to being published in order
to ensure that basic ethical standards are adhered to. We don’t cater to specific markets like business startups, added Smith,
“ we want to be there for any user who has a need regardless of the type or size of that need.”
