TORONTO, Oct. 17, 2012 /CNW/ - Artez Interactive, a global leader in multi-platform online fundraising solutions today launched the Friendship Powered Fundraising (FPF) app for Facebook. It is the only event fundraising app that runs entirely within Facebook, the online community that over a billion friends around the world call home.
The Artez FPF app leverages the unique power of friends to help fundraise within Facebook for charity ride, walk or cycle campaigns; share information about fundraising targets; track progress and post updates and pictures about the events - all with just a few clicks - and without ever leaving Facebook.

"Now charity supporters can maximize the power of friendship to achieve greater goals in fundraising with the Friendship Powered Fundraising app for Facebook," said James Appleyard, CEO and Chairman, Artez Interactive. "Unlike other services that simply link to and from Facebook, our app is inside so you never have to leave the familiarity of Facebook. Our app is also first to be integrated across multiple channels, so it works perfectly on mobile, tablet and desktop devices."
Charities today need a wide range of fundraising tools to reach donors and create compelling and successful campaigns that achieve change. Participation and conversion rates go up in runs, walks and challenge events when fundraising becomes easy and accessible.
The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is the largest grassroots mental health organization in the United States, and is one of the first organizations to use the Friendship Powered Fundraising App for Facebook.
Their national fundraising event, "NAMIWalks", includes tens of thousands of participants in over 88 locations across the country. Warren Kamol, NAMIWalks Director, saw the opportunity to reach out to supporters on the world's most popular social network.
"We already know that our NAMIwalks participants are using Facebook to reach out to friends and family for donations. It makes sense to give them as many tools as possible for fundraising."
Appleyard adds, "Charities need a seamless system of technology and functionality across multiple platforms. More importantly, The Friendship Powered Fundraising App redefines the way charities fundraise - completely mobile & social"
