I fell in love with bartering a long time ago, long before I started this website for non-profit fundraising ideas.
This is my story about my love for barter, and why I believe a good barter and trade exchange can help you raise funds for your non-profit events and fundraisers.
A decade ago, in Scottsdale, Arizona, I wanted to start my own business. At the time, I was a licensed acupuncturist with very little money. I started and built up my acupuncture practice with the help of a barter and trade exchange.
I traded acupuncture treatments for advertising, signs, business cards and fliers, a laptop computer, designer office furniture, housecleaning, salon services, restaurant meals, and a luxury condo vacation on the beach in San Diego.
Barter even covered all my moving costs when I moved to Tucson after my son was born. Now you know why I love barter! Bartering made the seemingly impossible... possible.
Bartering, with the help of a barter and trade exchange, can do all of this and so much more to help you with your non-profit fundraising.
These days, I devote all of my time and energy to creating fundraising ideas for this website, and introducing schools, charities, churches and other non-profits to the benefits of barter and trade.
