Why Facebook Fundraisers? 

Facebook has developed an easy-to-use online platform for establishing fundraisers that aid organizations such as the National Blood Clot Alliance (NBCA). For individuals aiming to give back to NBCA, this is a great option given its ease of use, social sharing capabilities, and ability to connect with your own personal networks. Facebook’s fundraising features make it a powerful tool for individuals seeking to raise funds and awareness to help Stop the Clot.  

“Creating a Facebook fundraiser for Stop the Clot was an easy way to help share my story and raise awareness and critical funds for an organization that helps blood clot community members like me. No one must face the threat of blood clots alone, and setting up a Facebook Fundraiser was my way of helping to save lives.” -NBCA donor and patient
