Raising money in a hurry is much easier in this day and age of crowdfunding. Sites like Kickstarter, IndieGoGo, GoFundMe, etc, allow people to raise money for their projects on an open, public platform. But how do you get strangers to contribute? What goes into a good pitch? These are some of the questions answered by Slava Rubin, Founder and CEO of IndieGoGo.

Folks please don't piggyback on this guys account, I'm positive he will not read your comments let alone your gofundme page. My advice is to make a video & upload here on YouTube.

If you are not a child, have cancer or a veteran, chances are you won't get much $. You MUST make a video that sets YOU apart from anyone else in the history of crowdfunding videos. I am truly sorry for each & every living thing on this planet, those whom cannot get the basic necessities needed to survive. I myself have an extremely rare (Less than 5, 000 people on planet earth lol) medical issue that will have me in a wheelchair if no surgery is done by mid to end of 2017, I've been trying to raise the cost that insurance will not cover which is $3, 000.00, trying since 6/2015 & have raised $200.00. Folks it's really really hard, I know a tonne of people on Facebook twitter & they have all shared my story thousands of times & yet haven't gotten much. Good luck to you all! 💗

Oxford House is a concept in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. In its simplest form, an Oxford House describes a democratically run, self-supporting and drug free home. Parallel to this concept lies the organizational structure of Oxford House, Inc. This publicly supported, non-profit 501(c)3 corporation is the umbrella organization which provides the network connecting all Oxford Houses and allocates resources to duplicate the Oxford House concept where needs arise.

The number of residents in a House may range from six to fifteen; there are houses for men, houses for women, and houses which accept women with children. Oxford Houses flourish in metropolitan areas such as New York City and Washington D.C. and thrive in such diverse communities as Hawaii, Washington State, Canada and Australia; but they all abide by the basic criteria.

Each House represents a remarkably effective and low cost method of preventing relapse. This was the purpose of the first Oxford House established in 1975, and this purpose is served, day by day, house after house, in each of over 2000 houses in the United States today.

The Oxford House Network:
A Self-Run Structure
Three or more Oxford Houses within a 100 mile radius comprise an Oxford House Chapter. A representative of each House in the Chapter meets with the others on a monthly basis, to exchange information, to seek resolution of problems in a particular House, and to express that Chapter's vote on larger issues.

The World Council is comprised of 12 members: 9 of which presently live in an Oxford House, and 3 alumni.  Members are elected each year at the Oxford House World Convention.  The primary mission of the Oxford House World Council is to facilitate adherence to Oxford House Traditions' concept and system of operations, by providing effective means of communication and mission focus between the various organizational structures of Oxford House as a whole.  In carrying out its mission the Council always keeps a focus on expansion of the network of individual Oxford Houses, to provide all recovering alcoholics and drug addictions the opportunity to develop comfortable sobriety without relapse.

The Board of Directors maintains the sole right to Charter, and to revoke the Charter of, individual Oxford Houses and exercises authority over the policies and officers of Oxford House, Inc. In this way, Oxford House, Inc. remains responsive to the needs of the population it serves.
