With the economy the way it is, I have been seeing a lot of people that could use help with one-time financial setbacks. Whether it be rent payment, car breakdown, fuel bills, doctor bills, etc. I have a vision of starting a website for my local area that would help people with one-time emergency funding. They post their need and then if they are funded, my website business would send the check directly to the landlord, repair shop, or doctor etc. to be sure the money is being used for what they request it for.
I thought of raising money by business advertising, or donations. I also thought of having a classified advertising section where I charge people a small fee that goes to the charity fund and then use the business advertising for my expenses. I don`t look to make a lot of money for myself from this, but want my expenses covered and perhaps a little to cover the time that will be involved. Other than that, my main goal is to help other people.
I have a full-time job, so not sure if this is a good idea to pursue, or not.
I`ve been thinking about it all the time though.
