RHH Rules

Our simple crowdfunding platform welcomes and support campaigns from a variety of categories: Art, Comics, Crafts, Dance, Design, Fashion, Film & Video, Food, Games, Writing, Music, Photography, Publishing, and Technology, We have a few rules every RealHelpingHands campaign must follow:

Campaigns must create something to share with potential donors.

RealHelpingHands can be used to create all sorts of things: art and gadgets, events and spaces, ideas, and experiences. But every project needs a plan for creating something and sharing it with the world. At some point, the creator should be able to say: “It’s finished. Here’s what we created. Enjoy!”

Campaigns must be honest and clearly presented.

Our community is built on trust and communication. Campaigns can not mislead people or misrepresent facts. Creators should be honest about what they plan to accomplish. When a project involves manufacturing and distributing something complex, like a gadget, we require campaigns to show donors a prototype of what they are making, and we prohibit the use of misleading imagery.
  • Prototype demonstration should reflect a product’s current state and should not include any CGI or special effects to demonstrate functionality that does not yet exist. If a project requires software and hardware integration, creators are required to show that functionality and any dependency clearly or disclose that it has not yet been developed.
  • Misleading imagery includes photorealistic renderings and heavily edited or manipulated images or videos that could give backers a false impression of a product’s current stage of development.

Campaigns can fundraise for charity.

While nonprofits are welcome to launch projects on RealHelpingHands, projects can promise to raise funds to donate to a charity or cause. Funds raised on RealHelpingHands must go towards facilitating the Campaigns outlined by the creator on the project page.

Campaigns can not offer equity.

Investments are not permitted on RealHelpingHands. Campaigns can't offer incentives like equity, revenue sharing, or investment opportunities.

Campaigns can not involve prohibited items.
