Global Crowdfunding Day, now in its fifth year, is the worlds largest celebration of the crowdfunding movement. It's about access to capital, passion, innovation, hope, job creation and philanthropy. Using inspiring and heartfelt stories and videos, people from all over the world are joining forces to bring great ideas to life that they care about, that would otherwise not have seen the light of day.

Global Crowdfunding Day is a time to celebrate the crowdfunding industry by giving back, getting involved and showing the world how strong the global crowdfunding community has become.

We encourage people from around the world to come out and show their support for entrepreneurs and the communities they help to keep thriving by encouraging crowdfunding-related activity amongst their own networks. Specifically, individuals can show their support for Global Crowdfunding Day by:

1) Launching a personal crowdfunding project
2) Making a donation or contribution to someone else's campaign
3) Promoting a favorite campaign through social media outlets
4) Posting all crowd-related activity on Twitter using #globalCFday

Lets show the power of the crowd, join us and support the crowdfunding industry by celebrating Global Crowdfunding Day together every year on April 5th and let's see how much money can be raised in 24 hours on crowdfunding sites around the world. We all can play a part, whether big or small, in helping to improve the global economy.

Crowdfunding can help make his dream come true. Join us and who knows maybe someday we will all live as one.
