  • Laurisha F.

    I definitely need help. I thought I would get a lot of support from family and friends on my project, but I have received very little. Here is my campaign: http://www.gofundme.com/70f8vc any advice is appreciated and thank you for the informative article!!!

    • CrowdCrux

      Fun fact: I used to live in DC. What kind of feedback have you gotten from friends/family? You always do a two step move – just bring what you need and then when you’re making money, do a second trip with your stuff.

    @laurishaf:disqus – I think it’s very honorable you want to be a judge. I think it would help your GoFundMe campaign if you explain why you want to be judge, what type of lawyer, etc. I think people will become more emotionally invested in your dreams!
