This week's guest will be the Rev Robert H. Lacy, a minister who was moved by Hurricane Katrina, and other needs in the Baton Rouge, LA area, to build (and fund the ongoing operation of) a soup kitchen, and food panty... among other charitable endeavors. 

The economic downturn has impacted the ability of many small businesses, and non-profits to readily raise funds.

You can actually follow along as this fund-raiser, using crowd funding unfolds, hopefully offering many lessons that you can learn from.

This project involves using crowd funding to launch a television show, with proceeds from the television show funding the non-profit endeavors... eliminating the need to constantly solicit outisde contributions.
