Contributors fund ideas they can be passionate about and to people they trust. Here are some things to do in this section:
- Introduce yourself and your background.
- Briefly describe your campaign and why it's important to you.
- Express the magnitude of what contributors will help you achieve.
Remember, keep it concise, yet personal. Ask yourself: if someone stopped reading here would they be ready to make a contribution?

Break it down for folks in more detail:
- Explain how much funding you need and where it's going. Be transparent and specific-people need to trust you to want to fund you.

And that's all there is to it.
