What is the difference between a campaign for charity and a campaign for an individual?
A fundraiser for charity is a project that collects donations for registered organisations. An individual campaign is created to crowdfund for an individual (e.g. fundraising for tertiary education fees, medical procedures, attendance of a sport competition, etc.).
