"Gazelle for Good gives individual fundraisers a new tool while bringing together NPOs who need to raise funds with donors who are seeking non-monetary ways to support their favorite cause," said Israel Ganot, CEO of Gazelle. "We want everyone across the country to know that it's simple to help out in your community and with Gazelle for Good anyone can start a fundraiser."
How it Works:

facilitating a gadget collection drive to gather donations.
2. In less than five minutes, fundraisers can log on to
www.gazelleforgood.com to create a personalized Web page by uploading
photos and setting their financial goals.
3. Promotional tools help fundraisers promote their site to friends,
family and other supporters.
