When thinking about recommendations, please also include what technology services and applications Rising should consider to address long-term goals into manageable short- term achievements and we'd love a list of prerequisites for implementing your proposed actions.
Managing a Non Profit, donor relations, lead generation, developing content, managing e-commerce customers, product inventory, vendors, Independent Contractors, volunteers and marketing with only three people is challenging. Rising International needs to develop an efficient system for project management and managing information from donors, subscribers, customers, leads, Reps, vendors, volunteers, contacts, etc.
Currently, we have too many systems and tools (i.e., old database, Constant Contact, Adobe Business Catalyst, Facebook, Twitter, Excel, Google Docs, Network for Good, CrowdRise, QuickBooks, Square, DropBox, gmail, photobucket, hightail, celebrations.com, paypal, freeconferencecall.com, hootsuite, Instagram, brownpapertickets.com, etc.) and no strategy for harmonizing them.
Our Mission is to end extreme world poverty in this lifetime. Working with others who share this mission, and with your help, extreme global poverty can become a thing of the past.
Rising International is a nonprofit organization that has revolutionized the home party business model to alleviate poverty locally and globally. Think Avon or Tupperware for a social cause.
We find the world’s most forgotten women and enable them to change their destinies by selling their handmade boutique quality products at Rising Home and Corporate Parties. We train women and teens to be Rising Representatives, many economically vulnerable, to run their own Rising Home Party businesses and sell the products made by their global sisters. We search the U.S. for party hosts who invite friends to their homes to shop.
Our sustainable model empowers both local and global entrepreneurs to rise above their circumstances
