    I've been contemplating this for some time now, and although it's going to be a lengthy process I wanted to take my first step here.

    What Am I Doing?

    I'm going to create an online charity, where people can send in small donation, via paypal, or whatever else that will go towards getting aide of some sort (food, shelter, etc.) to a few of over one million refugees affected by the civil war in Syria. My goal = raise over $2000 in a span of 5 months.

    Why Am I Doing This?

    I have many family members who are affected by the war, and hearing their stories and knowing many people have it even worse then them is really heart breaking and I want to make a contribution. I'll be honest, I also have a motivation that stems from the fact that I'm entering university next year, and although I really want to create a charity out of my own righteousness, I am aware that it would look good on an application as well.

    Who Am I Doing This With?

    A small circle of friends who are also in a similar situation, with similar backgrounds as me. They provide research about what's going on, connections to the region (for deliver of goods), and other stuff. My role is to bring the entire operation to the internet. This can also involve you hopefully, if you're willing to help in any slightest way including replying to this thread, offering advice, offering any relevant services, etc.

    How Am I Going To Do This?

    This part I haven't figured out quite as yet. I think it will involve:
    - building the main website
    - adding content to the website, information about what the charity is about, what is happening, and how a small donation would help
    - create a viral video (this is what I think is the hardest part of the process is, and where any help and advice would be greatly appreciated) to entice someone to visit the website and offer a donation

    Although I've been in the IM scene for 3 years, I'm not very accomplished. I'm hoping some of YOU who are much more highly knowledgeable, can pour in some ideas and what I need to do to get such a website up and running and to get donations coming in. Any advice as big or small as it is, is highly appreciated, thanks in advance!

    P.S. I'm completely aware of the controversy of this war in the media right now, but lets not make this any bit political. Regardless on your political view of the situation, I hope you can't deny there are innocient victims suffering from this, and they need our help, however significant it is!

    Your intention to help is definitely good since it will be for the needy.
    I am no expert but maybe you can use the donate feature of Paypal for those who will want to donate (or other ways how to donate). You will need to establish a website that include your reasons, beneficiaries and other useful information. Good luck.

    Build a page to promote the Medicins Sans Frontiers or Red Cross, they're honest organizations.

    Hire some website designers to build up a clean and professional looking website design and accept donations using a paypal button. If you want to create a viral video, i suggest you create a video and buy some views to it. Will definitely get more donations to your charity :)!

    Cheers,

    I can't do much of a difference by helping, but perhaps i can help you share this cause.

    That's really nice. Definitely make sure you build yourself a good web page and are readily available to respond to questions so the donators feel at ease.
