There’s nothing like the launch of a new year to prompt thoughtful reflection on the one that just passed.
As it happens, 2013 was a phenomenal 12-
month stretch for FundRazr’s various help
-seeking crusades. Many, many campaigns met their financial goals and many, many causes were the fortunate beneficiaries of a generous flow of the milk of human kindness.
 
A
scan of eight of 2013’s most interesting and popular campaigns — 
 a list that dabbles in across-the-board categories including science, family, community, non-profit, arts, education, veterans and travel
 — 
 reveals an impressive snapshot of the kind of successes on the books for 2013, all characterized by generosity and the home truth of the simple maxim: ask and ye shall receive.
 
Take, for one, the Journalistic Source Protection Defence Fund, established to raise money for the legal defence campaign of Edward Snowden. The only fund endorsed by Snowden and WikiLeaks, this FundRazr-sponsored effort raised $98,064 from 2,156 contributors over the 165 days it ran.
 
Or, for another, the Christmas Pyjama Drive, a Vancouver-based initiative led by nine-year-old Reese Shelly to ou
tfit disadvantaged children with the basic pleasure that is a pair of pyjamas. In the 54 days it’s
 been running, this cause has attracted 44 contributors with pledges of $47,983.
