When it comes to getting the word out about your charity, it is easy to become overwhelmed. However, there are many easy ways you can go about driving attention to a cause you are passionately backing. Best of all, not only are there ways to accomplish this goal easily, making it accessible for anyone, but you can also accomplish your goal free of charge.

The first rule of thumb any website owner will tell you, is to get involved. Participating in blogs and forums of other websites in your topic industry will get your name and your charity out in the web universe. By getting involved on like-minded websites, you are automatically pulling in an interested audience to your website.

Get your community involved. Contact your local press to do a piece outlining your mission and you will be sure to gain an audience willing to help on a more personal level. Most of all, be willing to make new contacts.

One of the best ways to increase the amount of viewers to your charity website is a tactic that has been taking over the minds of bloggers and website owners everywhere! Social Bookmarking.

With mastermind websites such as Technorati, StumbleUpon, Digg, del.icio.us, sk*rt, reddit, and so many more, can drive your Google page rank, Alexa score, and overall audience through the roof. Another website gaining more and more popularity by the day that can turn your site into overlooked to must-see, is Blog Carnival, which showcases the best content on the web in just about every category imaginable. With just a few clicks of your mouse, you are sending your cause out to millions of people who have the power to potentially make your charity soar and help you to help a lot of other people in need.

Above all else, believe in yourself and believe in your cause. If you are passionate about what you’re doing, then everyone else will be too. Good luck!
