It’s completely normal to hesitate asking for help. But, there’s a lot of power in doing so too. @Barbara Dorn to start, I’d recommend checking out our posts like how to write a fundraising story, and best practices for your title. Choosing a more informative title could help supporters know how to help right away. And, including a bit more detail in your story along with some emotion may help potential donors feel more connected to your cause. 

From there, check out these posts for general advice about how to share and get the word out.
