How do I get large scale exposure to gain awareness and increase donation support for my nonprofit mission outside of my own social circle?

I have a start up nonprofit org. I am donating my time, knowledge, love and energy into helping people achieve and maintain optimal health and keep families together through wellness. I need awareness and donation support to make this goal happen.

    Nov 16 2012: Hello Madhavi,
    Yes I have websites. My friends on social media are emotionally supportive but not helpful. I have a small circle of friends and need to reach out beyond them. get an article written up somewhere in mainstream social media would help. Seeking grants is a solid avenue I intend to pursue although I would like to create more public awareness to bring in both public donation and corp funding as well.
    I need to know who to contact and where to place my story and links.
    Thank you
    Dee

      Social media can be used to selectively reach people who may be passionate about your cause beyond your circle of friends.
      "to create more public awareness to bring in both public donation and corp funding as well. "
      There is public awareness but to be realistic,many are skeptical and apprehensive towards holistic medicine for various reasons. Kickstarter, as some Tedsters suggested is a great start for funding.
      "I need to know who to contact and where to place my story and links. "
      By sharing your story in online magazines(for eg. magazines on natural /holistic health, alternative medicine, yoga), you may reach people who are more likely to be interested.
