Get More Donations on GoFundMe With These 3 Tips

Published by Salvador Briggman. Find him on Twitter.

I just released a new guide! Check it out here. It’s all about crowdfunding personal expenses. Get Funding for Education,Travel, Volunteering, Emergencies, Bills, and more.

GoFundMe is a crowdfunding website for charity projects and personal causes. People have used the platform to raise money for medical expenses, animal care, college costs, and more. If you are new to GoFundMe, be sure to check out our list of personal cause crowdfunding websites and the GoFundMe reward ideas we’ve put together.

You can use GoFundMe to make a personal donation campaign, a charity fundraising campaign, or an all-or-nothing crowdfunding campaign (similar to Kickstarter).

In this article, I will be focusing on personal donation and charity fundraising campaigns.

Note: Prosper is also another good option for getting a low interest personal loan for medical, education, or other expenses and it doesn’t require collateral.

First Look at Other Projects and the GoFundMe Resources.

Before starting your own GoFundMe project, it’s important to get a feel for how others in your category have structured their campaigns. How many social shares did their campaign receive? Did they include a video? Pictures in their updates? Over what span of time did they raise the money?

For example, if you are thinking of raising $100,000 on the platform because you’ve heard of some major campaigns in the media, like the homeless man who returned the $40,000 he found in a backpack and ended up getting pledges from around the world ($159,000+), then it might surprise you to learn that the vast majority of campaigns on GoFundMe are for less than $1,000.

The GoFundMe “How to Fundraise” page and Help Center are great resources to start with to getting your questions answered.

Directly Reach Out to Your Personal Network

personal networkYou might be hoping that strangers will find and donate to your GoFundMe campaign, but the sad truth is that the majority of funding on GoFundMe comes from personal networks.

“Sharing your campaign with friends and family is a part of what makes GoFundMe work so well. Not only will the people in your life support your campaign, but they will also help spread the word to their friends as well. GoFundMe users should not expect to receive support from strangers.”GoFundMe Team.

Therefore, outreach to your personal network is crucial! I’d recommend directly reaching out to each individual in your social network. Explain to them why you are doing the campaign, how their contribution could make a difference, and how much you would appreciate their support.

Your social network could include: Friends, family members, loved ones, coworkers, and classmates.

Try Grassroots Marketing and These Fundraising Ideas

Your local community can be the second powerful force behind your personal fundraising campaign. Contacting your local paper, charitable organizations, non-profits, and setting up a community fundraising event can help you expand the reach of your GoFundMe campaign.

Pinpoint Why Your Story is Shareworthy

social networkIf you’re expecting your story to spread via social media, I’d recommend examining how social media centric publications like BuzzFeed generate social shares.

In order for your story to appeal to media outlets, it must first be inline with the type of content that the outlet produces. Second, it must resonate emotionally with their readers.

In my article, “Getting media attention for your crowdfunding campaign,” I explain how it’s crucial to identify how your story fits into the overall media discussion and the angle that you will use to persuade journalists that your story will drive traffic or sell copies.

A good place to start when studying how charity/cause campaigns get picked up via social bookmarking sits like Reddit is to examine these inspiring gofundme campaigns, which have raised five to six figures.

Does this make you feel uncomfortable?

I agree – it can be tough to ask your personal network for fundraiser donations. However, if you’re unwilling to do this, it might save you a lot of time and headache to just forego setting up a GoFundMe campaign. The vast majority of campaigns do not go viral. Most pledges come from the user’s social network and their local community.

Be sure to share your feelings about GoFundMe below. I’d love to hear some of your thoughts about the platform and your experience fundraising!

    I think focus indeed should be put more on the smaller campaigns because it’s good to know that, on such scales, good causes can get immediate help.

    • CrowdCrux

      Are you saying that as a backer, you would be more likely to back a smaller campaign because you feel like it would have more impact than if the project had such a large goal?

  • Deana Hensley

    wow, now I am thinking I missed something. I thought my gofundme project would get shared with ALOT of people your article suggests other than that. I am not asking for myself so perhaps I will not be the majority! I was reluctant to start a campaign as I do not like asking for money,however this house of my Mothers is in dire need. any tips you can send me are greatly appreciated!!!!http://www.gofundme.com/6zz5zo

    • CrowdCrux

      Please keep us up to date as your gofundme campaign progresses or any insights you have regarding the donation process.

  • Cameron Leahy

    I am having a hard time affording gas to go to work, food, and rent this month, I have totally changed my career and moved to a different city all on my own, I don’t know anyone down here other than co-workers if you feel in your heart you would like to help me I would love to invite you to Orlando to take you for a lunch once I get back on my feet again. These past few weeks have been very very tough for me, I am living on ramen noodles and water. http://www.gofundme.com/787v1w

      Have you reached out to your local network? On the gofundme blog it says “GoFundMe users should not expect to receive support from strangers.”

    You get some of my art for donating 5$, which is totally worth it! Whatever you can afford will help me. Thank you very much! I appreciate you even spreading the word too! ? Please show your support in this journey to get my masectomy (chest removal)! Whatever you donate is going to be matched by another donor organization. When I was in school I was bullied. Kids would spit on me, kick me, put my backpack inside out and push me down the stairs. When I told an administrator they told me, “A lady boy half-person like you should expect to be treated that way.” Students and teachers called me an “it” and a “tranny”. So, I withdrew out of high school my first week of junior year and got my GED.
    I’m going to the Community College of Rhode Island and majoring in fine art. I want to be a teacher. I have anxiety, ADHD and depression. I also have dysphoria. Dysphoria is the feeling I get when people use the wrong pronouns/name, looking at myself in the mirror, people calling me names, or looking at me the wrong way for being transgender.
    I have been on Testosterone since January 2013. I also got my name changed this year. However, the one thing that I still desperately need is top-surgery (masectomy) (so I won’t get Cancer and deal with dysphoria). It is all very expensive. $8,305 dollars. I need help to raise this money. I identify as gay. Some people ask me why did I “become” a boy, to like boys. My sexuality has nothing to do with my gender. I always knew I was a boy I just never told anyone. In elementary school I would stand up when they asked the boys to stand. I wanted to play sports and play videogames but I was ostracized.
    I can’t even go on the city bus without cringing at the things people call me and I can’t live without my chest binder. Some my family disowned me. It seems wherever I look I can’t pass as myself. I don’t want to prove my happiness, my gender, my pronouns or my name. I want to help all the transgender kids, even by showing them that it is possible, to dream of a day without dysphoria. Nobody should have to go through what I’ve been through.
    I didn’t choice to be this way. Life is too short to be sad. I really don’t want anymore trans people to die from ignorance or suicide. I tried to commit suicide four times. Insurance won’t pay for my surgery, please help me get one step closer. Donate 1$, even that will help. I appreciate what you can do, spread the word. All I want is equality. And of course, no more moobs. Please help, thank you for your support, I couldn’t accomplish this without you! Thank you.

    Usted consigue algo de mi arte para donar $ 5 , lo cual es totalmente la pena! Lo que usted puede permitirse me ayudará. ¡Muchas gracias ! Le agradezco que incluso la difusión de la palabra también! ? Por favor muestre su apoyo en este viaje para llegar a mi mastectomía (extirpación del pecho) ! Lo que usted hace una donación va a ser igualada por otro organismo donante. Cuando estaba en la escuela yo estaba intimidado . Niños escupían sobre mí, darme patadas , poner mi mochila al revés y me empuje hacia abajo las escaleras. Cuando le dije a un administrador que me dijeron , ” Una señora joven medio – persona como usted debe esperar ser tratado de esa manera. ” Los estudiantes y los profesores me llamó un “eso ” y un ” transexual ” . Así , me retiré de la escuela secundaria mi primera semana del tercer año de secundaria y tengo mi GED.
    Me voy a la universidad de comunidad de Rhode Island y especialización en las bellas artes. Quiero ser un maestro. Tengo ansiedad , el TDAH y la depresión. También tengo disforia . Disforia es la sensación que tengo cuando la gente usa el pronombre equivocado / nombre, mirarme en el espejo , la gente me llama nombres, o me mira de manera equivocada por ser transgénero.
    He estado en la testosterona desde enero de 2013. También me cambié mi nombre este año. Sin embargo , la única cosa que todavía necesito desesperadamente es de primera cirugía ( mastectomía ) ( por lo que no va a tener cáncer y tratar con disforia ) . Todo es muy caro. $ 8,305 dólares. Necesito ayuda para recaudar este dinero. Me identifico como gay . Algunas personas me preguntan por qué me ” se convierten en” un muchacho, a gustar los chicos. Mi sexualidad no tiene nada que ver con mi género . Siempre supe que era un niño yo nunca dije a nadie . En la escuela primaria me gustaría ponerse de pie cuando le preguntaron a los niños a ponerse de pie. Quería hacer deporte y jugar a videojuegos pero estaba condenado al ostracismo .
    Ni siquiera puedo ir en el autobús de la ciudad y sin cringing en las cosas que la gente me llama y yo no puedo vivir sin mi carpeta pecho. Algunos de mi familia me repudió . Parece siempre que miro y no puedo pasar como a mí mismo . No quiero demostrar mi felicidad , mi sexo, mis pronombres o mi nombre. Quiero ayudar a todos los niños transexuales , incluso mostrándoles que es posible , a soñar con un día sin la disforia . Nadie debería tener que pasar por lo que yo he pasado.
    Yo no hice la elección que ser así . La vida es demasiado corta para estar triste . Yo realmente no quiero que la gente más trans de morir por la ignorancia o el suicidio . He intentado suicidarse cuatro veces. El seguro no va a pagar por la cirugía , por favor ayúdame a un paso más cerca . Dona $ 1 , aún eso ayudará. Aprecio lo que puede hacer , correr la voz. Todo lo que quiero es la igualdad. Y por supuesto, hay más moobs . Por favor, ayuda , gracias por su apoyo, yo no podía lograr esto sin ti ! Gracias.

        thank you!!!

    • CrowdCrux

      Have you engaged your local community at all?

  • KAM

    I was very hesitant to put this up. Even though I did I should have went with my instincts. I have received so much negativity from my “friends” that I actually had to take it down off of my Facebook page. Lesson learned. I am a kind and generous person and have gone above and beyond to help those friends in need. I am the type of person that would give you the shirt off my back even if it was the last thing I owned. In return I have gotten slammed. I have shared my link on twitter and Pinterest too. Thankfully there no one has said anything but it hasn’t been shared by anyone either. I guess in all reality if you want to accomplish something you need to do it all on your own.
    http://www.gofundme.com/7e5mow#

    • CrowdCrux

      Can you expand on the negativity you experienced?

      • KAM

        Yes. I was told that: “You should be ashamed of yourself for asking people for money.” “You should not have to ask for money from others to get things you need in life.” “You should work harder to earn things so don’t ask for hand-outs.” “Buying a house is a privilege not and expectation people should hold so if you can’t afford it you should not be getting one”. Really the list goes on and on. I was overwhelmed with how much the people I considered friends and have helped out in the past, both financially and with my time, would be so rude to me. It just goes to show that kindness is not always on your side.

        • CrowdCrux

          Sorry to hear that!

    • Tyler Harcus

      Well I for one, as a person who does not know you, think that your campaign is an excellent cause. Everyone deserves to have a place they can call their own and asking for a little help to get that shouldn’t make you feel ashamed for one second. Anyone who puts you down for trying to make your life a little better needs to get a little empathy. I gave you a bit, more of a token saying “I support you” than anything helpful, but it’s all I can manage. Good Luck!

  • Dennis

    http://www.gofundme.com/7hiljc. I just posted today, and for a good cause mind you, and I had some pretty high hopes. But after reading this article, I’m a little discouraged.

  • William Gabe Phillips

    I posted on facebook and people were so mean i had to take
    it down… 🙁
    If anyone would please look at my page, I would be so grateful!

    http://www.gofundme.com/7hu6mo?forcedesktop=1

    • CrowdCrux

      Two tips:
      1. Break up the huge paragraph into smaller paragraphs to make the text easier to read.
      2. Use correct punctuation. Capitalize the letter of first words of new sentences.

      • William Gabe Phillips

        I agree 100%. I noticed this after it was posted. I spent a long time capitalizing and spacing just as you suggested, but the finished work wasnt how i wrote it for some reason. Gonna have to fix that later. Pretty disappointed it did that, but thanks anyway for trying to help. 🙂

        • CrowdCrux

          Definitely – Let me know if you have any other questions or if you would like to see any other topics covered related to GoFundMe

  • Tyler Harcus

    I posted my GoFundMe campaign to Facebook and Twitter and got a lot of support from people saying it was a great idea, but only one person donated any money to it. I thought that my page views would increase over the first while but it looks like they’re just dwindling down to 0. I don’t know if there’s any help you can suggest but here is a link to my page, any advice would be appreciated: http://www.gofundme.com/6z3f70

    • CrowdCrux

      Have you considered following up personally with the people on facebook that liked or commented on the page? Have you reached out to Jade’s friends to make it a joint gift?

      • Tyler Harcus

        She has posted a link to the site on all of her social media sites as well. I also contacted the societies and clubs she belongs to (Eastern Star, Beta Sigma Phi, and Daughters of the Nile) and asked if they would spread the word through their membership. I got a response from Beta Sigma Phi saying that they would send an email to their newsletter subscribers, but no increase in traffic has happened yet. Would it make it more appealing if I worded the site as if the people donating would be a part of the gift-giving, rather than donating for me to give her a gift? Maybe offer to put all of their names on a birthday card and say it’s a gift from all of us?

        • CrowdCrux

          “Maybe offer to put all of their names on a birthday card and say it’s a gift from all of us” – I like that idea.

  • Tyler Harcus

    I visited a site called gigbucks and there are people there advertising that they will share your link/message to 200k or more people on Facebook for $5. Is it worth trying that or are things like this a scam or not worth it?

    • CrowdCrux

      This reminds me of offers on Fiverr.com. I might try it, but wouldn’t expect much. Likely, most of the followers are bots or not engaged. Assuming I was the owner of this page and I knew my audience was interested in Kickstarter – if I could drive 100 unique visitors to a campaign I would charge much more than $5.

      $5 for 100 unique visitors would = $.05 per click. Average cost per click in the advertising world is $1, depending on the keywords or product. So, under that rationale, you could expect maybe 5-10 people to click for the price of $5, or the person is highly underpricing their traffic (or the traffic is from bots).

  • Shanah Deus

    I have only just put my campaign out there and was hoping that it would reach a more public audience. The funds are not for me but actually for a not for profit that I founded. My Facebook “friends” have proven to be very unreceptive of this type of thing so I hope that I don’t have to heavily rely on their support to raise funds.

    Any insight? http://www.gofundme.com/Empower-Our-Youth

    • CrowdCrux

      You mention your broad mission, but not a specific goal or project you will be focusing on initially with these funds. Aim for transparency and accountability with your donor base. Treat them like investors.

      “There is a growing, concerning trend of high unemployment, high incarceration and low college enrollment of the youths in certain areas across the United States.” – Who is concerned? You need to reach these people.

      For more tips on non-profit fundraising see: http://www.crowdcrux.com/top-15-nonprofit-crowdfunding-and-fundraising-tips/

      • Shanah Deus

        Hi! Thanks for your response. I actually agree with you, however I have been working with somebody who is on the board of directors for a couple of very well known non-profit organizations. Originally I was trying to reach out to minority groups (Black, Hispanic etc), but I was advised that this would actually hurt my chances of raising funds and was told to make it more broad/general. I am very torn on this because I had a specific target group in mind.

        I may go with my initial plan because I think that it will draw more donors in.
        Thanks again!

        • CrowdCrux

          “but I was advised that this would actually hurt my chances of raising funds and was told to make it more broad/general.” – Bad advice. The more specific the better. If you were a well-known nonprofit with an established donor base that is comprised of multiple minority groups – then yes, that would be a good approach.

          However, you are trying to acquire a donor base and with the amount you are trying to raise, I would still say to focus on a specific niche and over time you can expand the demographic of your supporters.

  • Jazmin Prattle

    I had started a campaign for my little sister just a while ago and our my mother is already saying it was a stupid idea to begin with. After reading I’m starting to think that myself. But any tips for this particular fundraiser.
    http://www.gofundme.com/7lec7k
    I won’t give up hope until I’m absolutely sure it was a bad idea.

    • CrowdCrux

      I would consider checking out the section of the article above entitled “Try Grassroots Marketing and These Fundraising Ideas” – There are various ways to raise the money.

      The people who are going to care most are those connected to you and your family. This could include friends, professional connections, community groups, etc. I would focus on sharing the story with your local community.

    I don’t suppose you could give me any advice with my campaign. http://www.gofundme.com/teensfirstmertail I’m starting to think that my dream is too selfish to be worth donating to. I am not sure what to do because i don’t really have any friends. I have one friend on facebook and that is my sister. She was a sweetheart and shared my page with her 200 something friends and I’m going to ask my mom to share too. My mom is very well known everywhere because she is an amazing musician. I have no friends on twitter and don’t have an account on pinterest or instagram. I think my hate of social media is finally biting me in the butt.

    • CrowdCrux

      You don’t really state what the funds will go towards specifically (supplies) or how your project will actually be created with the funds. I would also put a space in between each of the paragraphs.

      • Leah Winkler

        I changed the description and I think everything appears more clear now. How does it appear to you now?

        • CrowdCrux

          Looks better!

    I am not sure how to get this out there, or if it is just entirely too selfish for me to do. I don’t have any friends, just my husband. So I’m thinking this may just be a really stupid idea that I did, but I don’t wanna give up. :/

      I live in NYC. You can find housing for $700-800 a month, depending on where you live (Washington heights, brooklyn). Have you asked the program to sponsor your housing or will you receive a stipend? You could also work a part time job if you can’t receive funding from your local network.

    I only heard of Crowfunding sites a week ago, My Fiance’s cousin tried it before us, and in that time has raised $600.00 for her trip to spain! So i thought it was definetly worth a try to raise capitol for some very important projects!

    My Fiance’s book RednoraK, and our LIFEPRINTS project under MJT & Assoicates!

    • CrowdCrux

      Interesting. Did your Fiance’s cousin pass on any tips to you for starting yours?

  • We’re on Kickstarter and into our third day. We have 30% funding already. But a lot of that was on our first day in all the excitement. I have been combing over all the funding sites looking for tips to spread the word, and keep the momentum strong. If anyone has any tips, please share. Our project is to commemorate the Terezin prisoners in the death camp that performed 16 cincerts of the Verdi Requiem. Our concert will feature 175 singers and a 100-piece orchestra performing the Verdi. The funding will be to offset orchestra and staging costs. Please check out the project at: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1569674648/the-community-chorus-of-detroit-presents-verdis-re

    I am assisting my wife Jacki with raising the necessary capital to take her home-based handcrafted jewelry business Peace Love Frog to the next level, from just selling online at Etsy to going out to Arts & Crafts shows. We’ve invested a little over $1500 in startup fees, taxes, beads, charms and other inventory items, but she needs to create a lot more bracelets, earrings and necklaces before we can take the business to the local show scene. Any and all support will be appreciated. http://www.gofundme.com/Peace-Love-Frog

    • CrowdCrux

      To be honest, I feel like this would be a better fit for Kickstarter, because you could include handcrafted jewelry as perks and reward people for pledging money. Have you considered making the handcrafted jewelry part of the rewards you offer on GoFundMe?

I’ve donated many times to other peoples pages before I got sick and I know that if I could get my page out there people would be giving and receptive. Thank you again for the tips!

    Thanks for the help! I just started a campaign today. I have two weeks to finance a college education, due to circumstances I could not ever have anticipated. With a 4.0 GPA and National Honor Society membership, college is the next obvious step, adn one which is important to me. Read about my story here:

    http://www.gofundme.com/8ap9ew

    • CrowdCrux

      Having a lot of friends who attended college and friends who haven’t, I would definitely recommend going, even if you will be in debt, as long as your speciality is in a professional field with good longterm income prospects.

  • Alejandro O. Regalado Talavera

    This is a great article, I had not thought about outreaching to media. However, after reading your article “Getting media attention for your crowdfunding campaign” do you think my GoFundMe has potential of being recognized?

    gofundme.com/891kcw

    • CrowdCrux

      Possibly. You could reach out to your hometown newspaper or your school paper and pitch it as a member of the community helping in a foreign country. You may want to come up with more compelling rewards tho or consider writing a blog during your travels.

      • Alejandro O. Regalado Talavera

      Why don’t you get a part-time job? This is how most people pay off their debts in college.

        My credit score is too bad because of constant medical issues, and because of the undiagnosed pain, I can’t work.

    • CrowdCrux

      Interesting product. Have you studied any other mobile app education campaigns? Most will include rewards (where the download of the app is one). I like the video. Would also recommend doing one to explain the project, who you guys are, and why you are passionate about the project (3-4 min).

      • Melinda Crockom

        Thanks so much! I was actually thinking of making that same type of video so I’m glad to have some reinforcement to go in that direction. 🙂

Not only will the people in your life support your campaign, but they will also help spread the word to their friends as well. GoFundMe users should not expect to receive support from strangers.”

    So glad I found this…..Can anyone recommend a medical fundraising site, in which I do not have to rely on my friends? It seems GFME might not be for me :-/

    • CrowdCrux

      Do you mean fundraising for medical care or a new medical technology? In my experience, unless you are able to get some PR or are a part of an established community where you are valued (local outreach, or on a forum site like Reddit if you are a valued member), it can be difficult to get donations from strangers for medical care, not to say it can’t be done.

    An acquaintance who I hired a while back to do various chores for me from time to time due to my own recent health issues, has run into some serious hard luck. The most recent sequence of events is about to “break the bank”, I fear. The husband had his hours cut back, and has been unable to find alternative full-time employment yet. The wife has had unexpected medical bills that escalated far beyond their ability to pay. Their insurance provider has come up with excuses as to why certain things are not being covered. It is shameful. They are good people. When they were able, they often helped others on a regular basis. They have a child who suffers from autism. Though they do not complain about things, at least never that I am aware of, I could sense that something was wrong, beyond the physical recovery from surgery. A neighbor pointed me to a “gofundme” page that has been set up. But I see that thus far, almost no contributions have been made. If ever there were people deserving of help, this family is among them. I am able to help a little, and have been, but not much right now. If anybody here can help, even just a small amount, or can repost the page link to maybe find somebody who is able to help, please do. Thank you in advance, ever so much.

    Asking for money, oh how uncomfortable it is! It is hard to do when there is so much need everywhere, friends included. I waited 7 days before the full announcement. During those 7 days, I slowly warmed everyone up to it. Something like a pre-launch.

    In my efforts, I have included my small online business. Thank you notes and a campaign sign included with their order. Part of the plan is to include my business social networks. Not sure how my customers will feel as well. Maybe like I am asking too much? Time will tell. I plan on making a video, still in the process thought.

    My campaign is a personal cause to raise funds for a down payment on a house. With explanation as to why it is so important. One of the reasons being is my autistic son who is a mute with catatonic episodes onset to moving. Being stable is the goal.

    Thank you for this article, it has a lot of useful information that I am applying. Didn’t realize most campaigns on Go Fund Me is less than a $1,000. Will not let that discourage me. At best, I am learning more about marketing. 🙂

    This is so tricky…I have my heart set on this goal, but I still feel guilty for asking…I do not want people to think that my “cause” is more important than others. It’s definitely not, because it’s not life threatening…I haven’t really shared this with all of my friends/family on Facebook because I AM uncomfortable with asking for money…but I want to make this move and accomplish my goals in this new city *so* badly that I’m willing to try almost anything, so long as it is within the boundaries of staying classy and not being petty/selfish, and I feel this was a risk to start this…I’ve had a few people donate, which makes me feel better and that I have not been unreasonable in this request…still, if anyone could take a look, I would appreciate any input!! http://www.gofundme.com/8vis00

    • CrowdCrux

      Well, you could balance some of that guilt by offering interesting rewards so that people aren’t just donating, but will get some kind of perk for supporting.

    Hi! I just learned several days ago that I have the opportunity to go to Ghana AFRICA with NGOabroad to do a 3month homestay volunteering for Music Drumming & Dancing Youth Program! However…that program begins THIS August…so approx. 2 months! I put some money down in for it already, and honestly the fees are AMAZING….but still a decent amount…and all within SUCH a short time span to raise it! To make things worse…(or more difficult)..the first 2 or 3 payments ($300 $300 & $100) are due within possibly several days…a week at most apart from each other and cannot procede with the program and all the steps etc until that previous payment is sent in! And the “best” part: half of the people on my facebook are LITERALLY against the idea in general because I am doing this OUTSIDE of the US! (I was in SHOCK!) I mean it’s extreme on how vocal they are about it and it’s almost pointless lol. There are maybe some people that could possibly help–BUT–I literally have 0 views etc! I have no idea what I am doing wrong I thought I explained it great, explained how the fees are paid out separate and what they are paying for (also did the wish list)..kept trying to post on FB and another site and literally NOTHING!! And it really is an amazing cause and it is so soon that I need as much help as I can get! *** PLEASE PLEASE CAN YOU TAKE A LOOK AND TELL ME WHY THIS IS??? OR ANY ADVICE…I’M LITERALLY SO STUCK AND ANYTHING WILL BE HELPFUL!!!! THANK YOU!!!! http://www.gofundme.com/MusicDanceYouthGHANA

    I’m trying to raise a relatively small amount for medical bills and a trip to CA where I need surgery. I haven’t had any donations besides the first few when I first sent it out. Most friends say they too are struggling and just can’t donate so I’m at a loss! Any help would be appreciated! I’ve tried tweeting it with no luck!

    Hey, by any chance could you do me a favour? My sister is fundraising for an operation I will be undergoing soon, and you don’t have to donate, but feel free to, but I would wonder if you could share the page on your Twitter or Facebook – it’s http://www.gofundme.com/samslasereyesurgery

    • CrowdCrux

      I would advise making a video and relying more on your social network for this kind of campaign. “Sharing your campaign with friends and family is a part of what makes GoFundMe work so well. Not only will the people in your life support your campaign, but they will also help spread the word to their friends as well. GoFundMe users should not expect to receive support from strangers.”

  • Karissa Baca

    Hello, I have posted to all my social networks (FB, Gmail, Twitter, Linkedin, google+) and no responses, and I do not want to keep sending them the same email asking for donations and seem like I am bugging…no one seems interested….what else can I do? http://www.gofundme.com/Disabled-Farmer

    • CrowdCrux

      I would direct fb message/direct email (rather than posting in a general sense). If you still don’t get any interest, then people may not want to support your campaign. You could also consider making a video or including reward tiers.

      • Karissa Baca

    Hello. I watched a video on YouTube, Impressed me. I didn’t know such a site. I thought that I should create a page. I’m currently finishing my University final year. I want to finish university.

    • CrowdCrux

      What kind of company are you looking to start?

    • katielyn

      Is there a reason why you haven’t shared anything about yourself? Why are you in financial need? What are you studying? What do you hope to do with your degree? What are some things you have done to help yourself before asking us? What are the things you have cut out of your budget so you can remain at school? What part time ventures have you been involved with???

      When I set up my GoFundMe Campaign, I explained why we needed the money, why we didn’t have the money to help the kitty, and we appeal to the animal lover. I will agree that I have awesome friends who stepped up in a big way, but there were two very large donations from strangers to me, yet friends of friends who already donated.

      Take pictures, add updates, and tell us more about what you are doing.

    Greetings. I am thrilled that I came across your pages. I am eager to meet (surpass) my goal. I am new to reaching out for help but wow, I am learning that there truly are some amazing people in our world. I am curious and trust your opinion. I have seen some ‘sites’ that for-a-fee can help to promote personal fundraising sites. From your experience – are they worth it? I don’t see how I could afford to pay anyhow, but just wondering if you can share your thoughts on this? I will be reading more of your articles on successful tips. Thank you.

    My 19 year old daughter is running a fundraiser for an upcoming Mission Trip to Baja, Mexico in July. She is having a hard time raising the money. It seems that people with sick dogs and vet bills can raise a lot more money on that site than anyone else. http://www.gofundme.com/tanya-mission-trip2014
    It’s been very frustrating! Do you have any tips or suggestions?

    • CrowdCrux

      Have you considered offering rewards possibly? Maybe access to a blog or images she can give backers?

      • We do have one reward set up right now. We give a small book and a hand written thank you note to everyone who donates $25 or more. What do you mean exactly by access to a blog? My husband and I have a small food & travel blog. 😉

        We have also been thinking and talking about creating a book for future young missionaries after Tanya’s return with tips, photos, quotes, etc. I suppose we could add some information about that and add it as a reward?

      I would recommend asking them to create a video pitch for the product.

  • Thanks for the helpful tips. I’ve currently trying to fundraise money for a solo cross country photographic road trip. I’m a recent grad, and it’s been my dream to go on an adventure and photograph my journey. The people within it, and the places I go to. I would also like to volunteer along the way. The idea about a video is a great one. Not too sure how I would go about that now, but I figured once I had some money donated I would start my plans, and keep posting along my journey. But the suggestion you gave to someone else about a prize is a great one. I want to make a zine type of book once I get back from my travels. I think that would be a great reward for those who donate to help me out. Here is my page. Please share if any of you read this and would like to help me out. 🙂 http://www.gofundme.com/WanderlustPhotoAdventure

    Hi everyone! It has always been my dream to go to dental school and now I am so grateful to have the opportunity to be one step closer! I was recently accepted to NYU for my Master in Oral Biology which I hope to complete and then apply to NYU’s dental school! NYU has always been my first choice and I AM SO THRILLED that I was accepted into the program. Unfortunately, I am not receiving any federal aid until Spring 2015. I am hoping to fundraise my way through Fall Semester! I hope my friends and family and from people all around help me realize this dream! If you have a chance, please visit my page! Thank you so much!!

    Hello there!

    Could you please help me out?

    I am considering already that I would pay the costs for promotion with CrowdClan to put this on their homepage for one full week, put up a video, and possibly update my campaign to make it stand out already. But as I wait for word from the CEO of CrowdClan, I want to see if I can work around this low social traffic problem.

    It’s been almost two weeks since this campaign has been started, and I’ve gotten over 1,000 visits, yet only $80.00 in the goal for $2,000. I don’t think it’s a good idea for me to promote my campaign through e-mail because it can make some people feel awkward about this, and I don’t want to be stigmatized because of this.

    Here’s my campaign: http://www.gofundme.com/af3kwc

    I haven’t done any sharing on my profiles on social networks, except that I must be careful not to share it too many times, because otherwise it will be considered spamming. In addition, some profiles I got haven’t been worked on a lot for the past several months; this campaign came up too quickly.
    Please let me know at your earliest convenience.

    • CrowdCrux

      I don’t think traffic is your issue. In the article, it states “Sharing your campaign with friends and family is a part of what makes GoFundMe work so well. Not only will the people in your life support your campaign, but they will also help spread the word to their friends as well. GoFundMe users should not expect to receive support from strangers.” – GoFundMe Team.

      • Gregory Desrosiers

        I already shared it with my friends, but they are not donating any money to me at all, and the campaign is made for me and my parents; they are way too busy to share my campaign even. I definitely need to do some promotion, even though it would against what the GoFundMe team says…

    Thank you for the article, great tips. My wife went through surgery on her ankle at a very bad time for us and we are currently trying to dig our way out of very deep hole. While there is no time limit on GoFundMe, there is still a personal time limit to see things get done, in our case, move by the end of our lease this month. I started early and now seem to have hit the 30day wall, where folks are no longer looking or donating. If you have the time, please read our story and help in you can or share if you can’t, thank you!

      Hi, I’m very new to this, but I’m hoping and praying that somehow this will work… I just made a gofundme account asking for rent assistance. My husband lost his job a month ago, and hasn’t been able to find work, leaving me the sole breadwinner. Unfortunately, I’ve been sick and in and out of the hospital with pleurisy or pleurititis. It’s VERY painful, and has kept me from working and taking care of my family. I’m not sure if my campaign will work due to the fact that it’s pointless for me to put it on my facebook, as I’ve already asked everyone I know, and have been turned down, due to lack of funds on their end.. We Have 4 kids, and I’m just so worried. Is there any other way this can work for us? Please help us! We live in Phoenix and it’s so HOT outside. Thank you, and God bless!

    I originally started my gofundme to help pay for my community college expenses when I got laid off my work and had an injured back. I am now about to attend Texas A&M Commerce and I was supposed to have had enough scholarships to cover everything however that was not the case. I am still applying for scholarships hoping that I will get those, but I am terrified of student loans and I have had so much anxiety about them since I found out my scholarship were not enough. My family wont help me and I already own 9,000 on my car still. Please help me, I cannot work a full time job because of my back still and also I am a full time student…I work on campus at my community college but I am about to be without a job until I find one in Commerce. I dont normally like asking for anything but I have been in tears the past two days trying to figure out what to do. http://www.gofundme.com/1rt5sw?pc=fb_cr

    Not too sure exactly where my campaign would fall in those categories… I have an office job that barely covers living expenses and I’d like to get into a field that’s fun and can support me a little better. The problem is it takes money to start in this field, and quite a bit of it. I don’t have a large social group and most of the people I know are online. Anyone have any tips on how I would go about raising money for this? Any tips on making my description more enticing to strangers?

      Kane was attacked by hawks when she was very young. She was born feral and we ended up bottle feeding her and her sister when they found their way into our backyard.

Perhaps making video updates on youtube or creating a twitter or facebook page might help get attention for our loved ones.

        I’d leave you out there in a car as well if I knew you. You have a horrible attitude and are just a rude person.

    Not sure if you’re supposed to share your links for your fundraiser here, but I saw a couple others and figured I’d post mine as well. My husband and I are still taking donations as we are currently looking for work in our new area we just moved to since my previous job fell through on me after telling me I could be transferred. TIA!

    I kind of can’t rely on my friends nor family, because they think that if I wan’t to get money faster then I should get a loan. I don’t really want to do this. I created gofundme to check it out and just hope that anyone will do some donation as I’m working my ass off to earn money for it, too 🙂

      To be honest, I think it will be difficult to get donations from strangers if your family is not willing to pledge. As the article shows, most of a person’s gofundme donations comes from the individual’s personal network.

  • It sometimes amazes me to see some fundraisers that amass large amounts of donations for things that, honestly, don’t seem that urgent. Things like people asking for money for college getting tens of thousands of dollars.

    I’m trying to raise money to get myself and my daughter out of a violent and abusive home but I get $25. What’s the trick here?

    http://www.gofundme.com/b2mgvc

    • nd

      Joe, I think that your comment above is a good indicator of why donations may be slow. Downgrading someone else’s fundraising isn’t a good look, nor does it incite a desire to help. Someone can argue that trying to save a child from cancer is far more important than you moving out with your daughter, but that’s no reason why you shouldn’t receive funds! Everyone’s situation is different and there are plenty of reasons why people donate to different causes.

      When I was looking at your page one of the things that stood out to me was that you don’t indicate if you have police involvement. In most states it doesn’t matter if your male or female… the one with injuries can press charges against the offender. Showing that the abuse requires police or professional involvement (in the case of sexual or mental abuse) will help show potential donators that the situation is serious.

      It seems that you need the money to cover legal fees because unlike a female victim you can’t just walk away from the home with your daughter. You need a court to order custody or risk leaving her behind with an unstable parent (if that parent is a mom). I feel your pain on this issue and highlighting this problem for potential donators may help. I don’t want to fund your divorce, but I might want to fund a custody hearing if the home is unstable. I was left with a lot of questions about your situation though, like…

      Are you the stay at home parent? Do you have an income? Does your spouse make far more than you? Are you seeking help, and if so from what agencies? Is there a reason you aren’t financial able to leave the home (even if it’s to a downgraded situation/apartment)? Breaking a lease isn’t a big deal compared to the safety of your kids…worse case scenario is they get a judgement against you down the road…it shouldn’t stop you from finding a new place, even if that’s a motel for a while. Where is your family? Do they support you but live far away – or don’t support you at all? Do you have record of abuse; recordings, video, pictures, involvement from outside sources/agencies? (all things you will need in court anyways). Do you have a record yourself, is your past spotted with bad choices that makes it difficult to get people to believe you?

      I agree that abuse of male victims is often overlooked and under believed, but I think it’s less that your male and more that your page holds very little detail and doesn’t show how your trying to help yourself first. Or, what sort of damage has been inflicted on your and your daughter in the first place.

      I’ve booked marked your page and look forward to sharing it with others – good luck!

    Thank you so much for your wonderful advice! I recently started my gofundme campaign for my little Missy, my Cocker Spaniel/Chihauhau. I was a little skeptical in the beginning, but I had to let go of all the pride I was holding on to and ask friends, family, and good people with hearts to help donate money so that we could afford Missy’s surgery and get her off of the Trilostane. I was very open with my story. I know that there are people out there who are able to help. Here is my site: http://www.gofundme.com/bsfes4

    We lived at the village square apartments in Hot Springs, Arkansas. An officer woke my family and I up at 4 a.m. by banging on the doors yelling the apartment building is on fire. I have a son, 2, with Cystic Fibrosis and I am praying the smoke didn’t damage his lungs at all. I have a 1 year old daughter as well, along with my fiance. We lost everything in the fire that night and the management does not even care. There were 22 families that night, a total of 49 people. I pray that we can have help. I hope that once I am back on my feet, I can help more people. We have had little help, but we’re grateful for any and every offering we’ve been blessed with. Thanks

    Hey guys, my dog Bella has a slipped disk in her neck and is yelping a lot as a result. Surgery is inevitable, but my family is in a bad financial situation after buying a house. We know it is hard for people to believe this and we only have a youtube video of her yelping. Even if we make it halfway through our goal, we should be able to pay off the other half. If you are reading this and do not decide to donate (which my family understands), may you at least share her GoFundMe page through your social media account. Under is the youtube video length and the link to her GoFundMe page.

  • Rhonda T

    My daughter and I started a gofundme account (http://www.gofundme.com/bm07y0) she put it under education. She has cystic fibrosis and plans on going to college. The problem is we are ready to leave 2 weeks from today and I messed up on fafsa. I put her down as the borrower instead of me and deadline was July 1. Also, because she was so sick this school year and one teacher was not willing to work with her until the day of graduation she missed all the deadlines to apply for scholarships. All her grades had to be submitted for scholarship applications by June 15 and graduated June 25. She has raised $760.00 so far, should she change the title from “They said it was just a Dream” to maybe something with Cystic Fibrosis in the title?

            Haven’t you ever heard of student loans? They give them out to anyone…

          • Pamela Kennedy

            And when you graduate drowning in so many student loans you can never hope to pay them back on entry-level salaries, you are further outsted from the job market by the fact that most jobs are CHECKING CREDIT these days. Good one.

          • Nathan Gray

            In the real world if you want an education and aren’t rich, you get a student loan you crazy person. Student loans don’t hurt your credit if you aren’t a loser and actually pay them. Even at entry level you can afford the min payment… If you can’t then maybe you need to just go work at Mc Donalds.. Asking people you don’t know to pay your way thru college is ridiculous. It isn’t a medical necessity or anything of the sort. If you want an education, get loans and if you REALLY want an education, do good in school and you get more grants based on academic achievements. What makes you think that anyone deserves paid college more than others…

          • P Kennedy

            And when you can’t get a job in this market you can’t pay them. Clueless. What are you, some overentitled rich boy who thinks that everyone else has to suffer, and if you saw someone who couldn’t pay medical bills but had something completely curable you’d just tell them to go die and decrease the surplus population? How Dickensian of you. Wow, what an asshole to tell college graduates to “just go work at McDonald’s.”

          • Nathan Gray

            Hahahahahaha omg I needed that laugh. Entitled rich boy? You have no idea.. My dad worked his ass off to support us kids as a single parent. My clothes were always hand my downs… We didn’t get much new stuff at all. Kids at school laughed at me and called me super marios son….

            I am working my ass off at a crappy quick job and supporting 2 people on this one income. I work full time and go to school full time…

            Entitled? Hardly.

            Your father was a PLUMBER? And you’re whining???? Plumbers earn more than psychologists!!! They are RICH. Plumbers can own a HOUSE. You didn’t get “much” new stuff? OMG. You are so privileged you don’t even know what privileged IS. You were able to tinker with cars as a kid??? Gee, how did you have access to cars to become a “self-taught mechanic?” Some people don’t HAVE cars, jackass. But I guess those people are just losers to you. And you DID tell college educated people to work at McDonald’s, and that they were stupid and deserved it for not getting the same degree as your brother or your sister. I’ll bet in your spare time you also enjoy insulting kittens and talking your friends into suicide.

          • Michael Stewart

            It was your choice to get a degree in something that everyone else is getting one in. I think it is funny when you are on a bus and when you ask people what they are going to college for and they all say medical billing. In a few year after they all graduate and cant find jobs because they have all been outsourced to India.

          • Matt Seward

            My dad owns his own small business and I can tell you he is far from rich! He is middle class at best and he does own his home (sort of). He has a modest brick home from 1970 that’s 900 square feet. It’s I’m need of upkeep desperately but due to him being at work non stop he doesn’t have the time or money really me works hard but really doesn’t make what you’d think. I’ve helped do his books.. Believe me he’s not making that much. Maybe in another state he could make more but here in a small town in Oklahoma he’s barely getting by and he has to use my step mother’s health insurance even…

          • Nathan Gray

            You added QUITE a bit in there that I didn’t say at all you fucking moron. I didn’t once tell a college person they had to go work at McDonalds. They can do whatever they want…

            As far as medical bills that people can’t pay, that is me so you are 100 percent off. I have bad credit because of medical bills I can’t pay. I have $17,000 worth of dental work I literally can’t pay for…

            So as far as you calling me rich… You are just about as fucking retarded as they come. I have been on my own since I was 16 and could work. I’ve always paid my own way.

            I didn’t grow up around working on cars but due to finances- I have become a self taught mechanic and can fix quite a bit on the car to avoid sending it to the shop…

            You just don’t have a fucking clue and should stop making accusations you know nothing about.

          • Maggie

            PLZ do not call others retarded…that’s an insult to people with mental issues…thank you!

          • P Kennedy

            Student loan DEFAULTS because you couldn’t get a job in this God-awful job market, right out of college or even after exhausting all the deferrments, DO TOO ruin your credit. Asshole. I should be the better person and be happy for you that you live in your little bubble where nothing bad happens and you can “pull yourself up by your own bootstraps” and get good-enough paying jobs with your college degree, in enough time out of college to not wind up in default of your loans. Good for you. Not true for MOST people these days or what rock have you been hiding under for the past decade?

          • Nathan Gray

            AND lastly, if you can’t get a job in the current job market then i’d be quick to tell you- you obviously are a stupid shit and didn’t do your homework. You need to take your time and research jobs that are in demand and will always be in demand… Like healthcare for instance.. That isn’t going anywhere…

            But getting a degree and becoming whatever you want and ignoring the fact that it isn’t a job that is in demand… that’s your own damn fault when you graduate and can’t find a job…

            I live in Oklahoma and my friends who have actually applied themselves and tried… They all graduated and found jobs… I haven’t once seen someone here get out of college and just have to go work at mcdonalds… I have however seen a couple of lazy fucks that make excuses for everything and complain about how hard their life is….

            I truly can understand asking for help if say your house burned down or you need help for medical bills but I certainly can’t see people asking complete strangers to pay their college so they don’t have to when they graduate. That’s fucking stupid.

            If you can’t graduate college and find a job that pays well… Why the hell did you go to college to begin with?? Idiot.

          • Dana Lynn Chauncey

            Well aren’t you living in a fantasyland.
            I work 70+ hours a week in healthcare for below poverty line pay. So commander delusional not true. Healthcare field does not give you a living wage, some areas do but not nursing. I know over 30 friends that graduated with degrees in nursing and only one has a job, all had GPA between 3.8-4.0 and unemployed over two years.
            I support my disabled mother and have for over 25 years. Went back to college to finish degree and kept being told it would mean more income. LOL Now my debt is three times my income, and yes I chose an “in demand” field. But here there are over 12,000 people applying for a single job opening. So graduated three years ago and still no second job. Loan debt grows every month though, and my income from nursing has been flat for five years. I did earn grants which helped but not having a better paying job since graduation has doubled my loan debt.
            I am not lazy or stupid, IQ of 164, worked full time during college. GPA for AAS in technology of 3.5, bachelor GPA 2.938 due to mom getting majorly sick while I was writing final dissertation papers and got Cs on two out of three because worked over 100 hours that last week and just to exhausted to do better.
            I have been half of my family income since I was 9 yrs. old and full support since I was 17 and paid for my own college at 19 but couldn’t finish as mom got sicker. Dropped cause docs said she had life expectancy of 3-5 yrs. and figured I could go back before I was 30. Well she has out lived those docs and I am still sole provider after 25 yrs.
            You also I notice do not have a college education so what would you actually know about what it costs or how hard you have to work. Second hand knowledge is next to useless.

          • Cherie Senchesen Shulter

            Nursing doesn’t pay a living wage?
            About three years, ago, I invited a recent nursing graduate to come stay with me and my husband because there were no jobs in his area, and San Antonio was hiring in a lot of fields. He took us up on the offer and came here. Within the first month here, he got a job at university hospital. He chose to work nights for the differential, and he worked a lot of hours. By the end of the first year, he made more than I did with a masters degree, and not much less than my husband, a lawyer. After two years in SA, he moved to Miami to work for a different hospital. He makes a lot more now. Medical Assistants struggle, I know. Techs struggle. But nurses? Now, I’ll admit they do work very hard. They may not make what they are worth. But they do make a living wage, at least in hospitals they do. Some job markets are really bad. A lot of them are right now. It depends where you live and if you have the flexibility to move or not. The guy I knew had literally nothing. He moved here when he did because if he waited another month the money he would have used to move would have all been spent on his rent and he would have been homeless and still Baltimore. He really took a huge leap of faith coming here, but it worked out in the end. Sometimes, you’ve just got to go where the jobs are.

          • Cherie Senchesen Shulter

            PS: I recognize that moving is not an option when you have a sick parent to care for. My point is simply that it’s not that NURSING doesn’t pay or that there are no nursing jobs. Rather, that it just so happens there are no nursing jobs in your area at this time. Which is sad. But not quite the same thing.

          • Bernice Jenkins

            I call bullshit on actual RN’s not being able to find jobs. They are in demand everywhere. Even working from fucking home doing telenursing which starts out at 40 grand a year. So unless there is something wrong with these people or they are not actual RN’s and prob some sort of nursing assistant which is not even the same thing then you are full of shit.

          • Bernice Jenkins

            And again i call bullshit because a degree to be a RN is not needed. You just have to be certified through your state licesing board of nursing. Many RN’s dont have bachelors degrees. So you are lying or a retard.

            Coco’s CHARGE Syndrome Fundraiser

            If you ever get the chance to meet Coco, you would immediately feel compelled to help this special girl. Seeing how most of you reading this have not personally met Coco, I will quickly tell you about her. Despite her own daily struggles, Nicole “Coco”, puts the needs of others ahead of her own. If she just walked around the block in 90 degree weather (which is an enormous challenge for her), and there was only 1 bottle of water, she would offer it to everyone else around before taking it for herself. She is constantly worrying about others. Regardless of her condition, Coco always has a smile on her face, and makes the best out of even the worse situations. Just being around Nicole brightens your day. The link below will tell you more about the disabilities she struggles with on a daily basis and explains the importance of this fundraiser.

            https://www.gofundme.com/249v27fw

            Anything you can donate is greatly appreciated, and will certainly go to a great cause. Sharing the gofundme link on Facebook will also help get Coco’s story out there. Thank you for your time.

            If you defaulted then you are fuckin stupid. They have payment plans based on income so if your income is 0 then your payment is 0. If you are too stupid to reseach what plans are available then you deserve to be in default. Obviously that was a degree wasted on your dumb ass

          • Dana Lynn Chauncey

            Actually student loans do affect your credit score as of about 2010. If you don’t land a job above min wage out the gate then you can’t make min payments, and private lenders rarely negotiate on that, so default which does hurt your credit score.
            Loans whether fed or private come from others people. So yes, other people are funding your education if you get loans. This means every single person that uses loans is asking people they don’t know to pay their way thru college. Banks don’t have money they use the deposits of customers. I am fairly certain that when you got loans you did not contact each bank customer (source of your loan) to personally ask them for their money. So you took it from strangers. Shame on you.
            Many employers won’t even bring you in for an interview if your credit score is below whatever number their HR department set to weed out applicants. So it does hurt you to have student loan debt.

          • Patricia Van Pelt

            Actually they have a income based repayment plan now so if you do not find a job or you make less than there guidelines you do not pay anything and it reports as paid as agreed on your credit report. I am on this program and I pay nothing and my credit score went up over 100 points since I did the income based plan. Your credit is only affected if you do nothing and go into default.

            Yeah, uh I rather the government help this stupid country get educated than subsidize corporations and other with corporate welfare and entitlements. And the banks clean up on student loans and their prohibitive interest. It’s a racket.

          • Michelle Mauler

            NOT TRUE. You still have to pay rent, which means you have to apply for lots of hardship deferments. There are no grants based on academic achievements in non-math or non-science areas. Obviously in America we believe that accountants and computer programmers deserve paid college more than teachers, nurses, or therapists. You are lucky to live in a family that took care of its own. Student loans hurt your credit rating, cut into your ability to pay your other bills and hurt your credit rating MORE, and most jobs connected with one’s degree require at least one unpaid internship, so only those whose families can support them actually get anywhere. Stop judging everyone else and live your own lucky little life.

          • Matt Seward

            His family doesn’t take care if it’s own. His father and family has disowned him for being gay. They don’t fucking have money to begin with. They are very broke and have all worked their asses off to get even where they are today. Nathan lives in a house he got a loan for and is having to remodel it himself with stuff he’s learned online. It’s barely liveable.. He’s far from rich and he’s worked his butt off for what little he has. He works with a disability and doesn’t complain about it at all. He works overtime every week to try and pay for bills and fixing up his house. He goes to school full time and has student loans for all of it. You people have no clue.. He’s just tired of people asking for a handout.. People always expecting things from people.. Make your own way in this world people…

          • Cherie Senchesen Shulter

            Theoretically, we shouldn’t have to beg to pay our medical expenses, either. Theoretically, we should work hard, save, invest, make good health choices, and have health insurance including a policy that pays a lump sum if we get a diagnosis of something like cancer. But sometimes, before we get enough saved up, something like cancer happens. (It happened to me, anyway.) The same can be said for going to school. No, you shouldn’t have to beg for money to go to school when student loans are out there, but I know a few people who can’t get student loans. One reason why a person might not be able to get them is if they had a student loan, started school, and then couldn’t finish. If they fell behind on the first loan, they can’t get another one to go back and finish school until they are current on payments for the first loan. If the reason they had to leave school was a tragedy in their life, it’s really no fault of their own. Also, anyone should be able to contribute to anything that they want to, and they can. If you don’t want to pay for someone to go to school, don’t. I you do want to pay towards someone who has cancer, please do. (Consider mine, actually! https://www.gofundme.com/zqcj8w) I agree with you that asking strangers to pay your way through school is ridiculous, but I also think that strangers paying someone to get someone to make potato salad is just plain stupid. If someone wants to do something stupid with their money, it’s their right, really. Yes, it makes me sad, because if they gave it to me instead to help pay for cancer treatment, I’d make sure that when I’m recovered I’d go do other things that would help more people, but whatever. They can enjoy their potato salad, I suppose. People do stupid things. In droves. Oh well.

            wow…insensitive much? im SO glad you’re so damn smart that you have the best damn job in the world,apparently! did you ever think about people not being able to get/find full time work because of health reasons,disability….or even the fact that they might have kids and daycare/babysitting costs an arm and a leg these days…..not everyone is as lucky as you claim to be….don’t judge! I’d love to see how you get on one day if ever you become disabled,or have a health issue that prevents you from working full time, or you just simply lose your job because of the economy….give us an update then.

          • Matt Seward

            The best job ever.. I don’t think you paid attention here.. Nathan works at a fucking quick shop. He has a disability he works with and he works 60 plus hours while going to school and never makes excuses..

          • Nathan Gray

            Oh… You are just a fucking moron. My sister in law and brother both graduated college and she got on with the state and he started entry level working internet security for a bank which payed quite well and now he’s working IT for a large company and is making quite a bit of money… It only took him a couple of years at the other job to move on up to a better company….

            3 years after graduating and they bought a house… A new car…

            All proof that if you actually apply yourself and get a job that’s in demand, you can actually succeed. Stop blaming everything on a damn job market. You whine more than a kindergartener.

            Not sure if this thread is updated anymore, but if anyone has any advice to get my sick special need’s cat’s GoFundMe page out there, please let me know! I’ve started posting to cat communities on Facebook, but haven’t gotten much response yet. I dI’d get one donation, which was so much more than I was expecting and so amazing.

            My name is Kara, btw. I’ve had my special needs rescue cat (she has FIV and Hyperthyroidism), Gracie, for three years now. She’s about six years old.

            Gracie’s health took a turn for the worse in the past few days. She’s having a hard time breathing, is lethargic, her appetite has decreased, and she looks SO tired. I’m not sure how much longer she’ll make it without vet care ASAP, and I don’t have the funds to get her help at the moment.

            I know I’m a total stranger, but I have nowhere else to turn. She is such a good and sweet cat, and she deserves to live. She doesn’t deserve to suffer anymore than she already has. Especially after being abandoned by her previous owners. I just want her to be happy and healthy. I feel so guilty and helpless that I can’t afford to get her help. I’m praying that someone out there might be able to share the GoFundMe page to spread the word about Gracie, or even donate.

            Anything at all helps, and will be greatly appriciated! Also, all receipts for Gracie’s vet care WILL be posted on the page, as well as updates about her condition. Here is the link: gofundme.com/helpsavegraciegirl

          • Patricia Van Pelt

            You can go to carecredit .com and apply for a care credit card to cover vet bills. My credit is really bad and they gave me one. They give you an answer right there and an account number so you can use it right away while you wait on your card. Try that.

          • Michelle Mauler

            that’s not even true. That might have been true in the 1950s, but there are a lot of reasons why she wouldn’t have gotten enough in scholarships to actually go to school. I had three scholarships and couldn’t actually cover books Freshman year. Scholarships that covered everything when they were created, don’t even cover your books nowadays.

            School is a privilege not everyone can have. Many of us cannot live our dreams or go to college either…that is life. Try a student loan like many others do…or get a job to help pay etc… Do you realize how many out there want what you ask for ? Your one of a million…

            Do you have an attorney who knows the Disability rules? You do not have to pay the attorney up front. When you are approved, their fee, which is a set fee, is taken out before you get your money. It is worth it.

          • brasileiro americano

            I am disabled due to complications of type 2 diabetes, which was late in being diagnosed. I have my sugar under reasonable control, though the doctor would like to see my A1c hemoglobin below 7 (it was 7.1 when I went to the doctor 9 days ago), but I was in worse shape about 18 months ago before I was officially diagnosed than I am now. My A1c was over 12 then and my sugar readings were above 250 at the time and I didn’t know and when I found out, at first I was in denial. I also have had 8 brain surgeries. I can go to school and get a second bachelor’s degree, but I can’t stand on my feet to do a manual labor job or something like working as a cashier, or working in a cafeteria, because of the diabetic neuropathy in my toes. I’m not even 100% sure when the neuropathy started, but I know I had it long before the type 2 diabetes was diagnosed in March 2015. And my vision problems started long before that as well.

          • brasileiro americano
          • brasileiro americano

            I applied to UMass Dartmouth in January 2016 to begin study for a second bachelor’s degree (in the Portuguese language this time) and was accepted to start this fall (in less than two weeks) on June 15, 2016. I have only received less than 30% of the cost of me attending school there through federal student loan programs and scholarships. Since I already have a bachelor’s degree and can’t work using that degree at this time, I am ineligible for Pell Grant or state grants given by universities. I have scoured many scholarship websites including the one for UMass Dartmouth, and only received a $1,400 scholarship from the Portuguese department. My loan I requested is for little more than $10,000 because I am not able to borrow the full cost of my education because of loans taken out for other schools I’ve attended in the past. I will undoubtedly be seeking loan forgiveness for the federal loans either upon graduation or entering graduate school, as I intend to stay at UMass Dartmouth and work toward a PhD in Portuguese, which I should have by May 2022. Já falo bastante português que eu poderei começar os meus estudos de português na aula de POR 301, é dizer que eu não preciso POR 101, 102, 201 ou 202, porque essas aulas seriam fácil demais para mim.

          • brasileiro americano

            I also applied for disability in July 2015 and was turned down in May 2016, and do have a disability attorney working on the case, so I had them file a request for reconsideration. I spoke with the woman in the Disability Determination office in Columbus, OH who is handling my case there, and she said they are still trying to find an eye doctor who will do an examination for them. I explained that I need to be able to move to Massachusetts by the beginning of next month, but she just said that if I move to Massachusetts before my reconsideration case is decided, that they will transfer my case to the Disability Determination office in Massachusetts. So I have no idea whatsoever if they may be able to schedule something before I move and make a decision. I have been told that reconsideration cases usually do not take as long as initial decision cases, and that less of the reconsideration cases are denied than the initial ones are.

          • Laura R Gullett

            This is the BS I’m talking about that makes me so mad at politicians. They expect us to handle a 30-day cycle or else be punished with bad credit for the rest of our life, but at the same time, they flat out steal our tax money to pay their 30-day due dates to keep their credit rating good, while they take forever to provide what we need when we ask for it. Our political system is so inhumane as far as I’m concerned.

          • VieteranGunsmith

            The problem with a meal prepared by hundreds of passers by is that it may look good – every administrator and politician that ever occupied a seat in government tinkers with these programs – but the resulting Franken-food is unfit for human consumption.
            I am generally in favor of simplifying every aspect of government and not allowing people to make a career of being in office. The big trouble is the people in charge don’t want to return to being one of us once they get a taste of the government power we afford them by electing them or by the elected people who appoint them. It is these administrators that screw it all up.
            The ones who get elected all have big promises they make around election time to get your vote, but some of these promises are really bad investments for us as a whole, and in the case of social welfare programs they create dependency instead of promoting individual freedom and responsibility. The SSD program is chock full of fraudulent recipients and the reason it is so tough to get into the program. There simply is no real effective way to sift out the con artists from people who legitimately need help.

          • Ellie bee

            You aren’t punished for bad credit for the rest of your life. Isn’t it easy to fix if you just commit? Sorry but please don’t cause more panic. There are people on here who are already in a bad place because of small loans and thinking that nothing they do will fix it is too much.

          • Laura R Gullett

            People who are in college do many outside jobs like retail, various ones at bars, entertainment, and now more online. You should not be allowed to ask for forgiveness of your federal loans in this circumstance. Our universities are totally worthless if you can’t get one single job, even part-time, with a bachelor’s degree while you are still attending. I’ve heard of many simply as lots of professors for work or sponsorship grants as well. If they can write it off in their expenses within the tax code, then they will give it to you. That is how our government helps foreign students.

          • Laura R Gullett

            These would be medical conditions that social security disability should approve for benefits. Once you are approved they have to pay for all the months you waited as well.

          • VieteranGunsmith

            Good points, but these benefits are not given to non US citizens. You should have pointed that out.

          • Laura R Gullett

            Why would non U.S. citizens expect to receive government benefits that are setup for U.S. citizens? Why would I have to point out that obvious fact? Yes I know they actually do but that is a different conversation. There isn’t any reason to point out the obvious. I’m an American citizen who would be obviously talking about benefits for American citizens.

          • Mom To One

            That is not true — there is a limit on how far back they will go to issue back pay. For example if you applied in Jan 2013 and it took until Jan 2017 to get approved, all they legally have to pay you for back pay is 2 years.

          • Laura R Gullett

            Sounds like you need a better attorney. I would never give up that fight when they made you wait that long. What really sucks is how they go to work and sit for 8 hours then get to go back home, while you are suffering and waiting forever. They go home and pay their bills within 30 days, but people who need that money can’t. It’s just terrible.

          • VieteranGunsmith

            brasileiro americano – You may apply for SSD, but these benefits are for American citizens. You have to be a citizen before you are eligible for SSD. You did not mention your citizenship status. Please be sure and seek the advice of an attorney on this, the consultation should be no charge, and you don’t pay unless you are granted benefits, and if you are you get a lump sum payment that dates back to your claim filing date. The attorney gets paid by Social Security – a percentage of your first payment, and if anyone tries to charge you to handle a claim for SSD they are taking advantage of you and violating federal law.
            SSD also limits the amount of income you can make in a calendar year, which means if you work and go over that specified amount of money, your SSD will be cut or eliminated. In such cases it is not uncommon for you to discover that you exceeded the amount you are allowed to make and they will send you an overpayment statement which you will be responsible for paying the government back for the amount overpayed to you.
            The amount you are granted and paid monthly is calculated from your past earnings history, so the more you made when you were working, the higher your payments will be. For instance, if you made $30,000 a year for a period of years and then you were disabled, your disability will be a percentage of that amount of annualized income. A person who made less than you gets paid less. So SSD is a great benefit if you can’t work, but you will not become wealthy and will probably be living on a subsistence basis on what the government pays you.
            You can find out more at the Social Security Administration office near you, or from an attorney who specializes in Social Security Disability claim filings. Check their website, but for the best understanding you need to go talk to either the SSA or an attorney.
            These are things to consider regarding Social Security Disability.

          • VieteranGunsmith

            Why is it that you want to overstress the person’s ability and desire to affect a positive outcome out of their own generosity by throwing the whole world into the deal?
            Is the whole world incapable of helping themselves where they live?
            Most of the world has their hand out, who do we give the help to from a non-endless supply of help?
            If every nation on Earth did more to help their own needy people questions like yours would never be asked.

          Same, I saw someone get over 2,000 dollars to find a unicorn. When our house burnt down and we were in the homeless shelter we could barely raise any money, and now that we’re homeless again cause oppd ripped us off over and over. We can’t raise anything. This world needs to open their eyes over selfish acts like Mac and cheese and simple stuff like that.

          Hello all,
          My mom is battling Lupus. The insurance had denied coverage for her infusion treatment (treatment once you get to the bad stage of the illness), we appealed but got covered for 2 units. It’s VERY pricey. Its 6k for deductible and 6 copay. We are doing BBQ fundraisers, garage sales and other things to raise money. We are also contacting different charities but there are not many for Lupus. Please consider donating. Even $5 will help! http://www.gofundme.com/nolupus

        I just want to ask this. Has anyone ever asked to get help for them to buy house got help on here. I am mother to six kids and I have one child who is special needs child and I want us to buy house but it is so expensive where I live. Right now I am renting but you never know when I have to move again. Since my family is large it is very hard to get landlords to rent you their house. In 2012 it took me to find a place to rent March to November because I have 6 children. I am not proud to ask this kind of help from anyone because I know we all have our struggles we go through. Please let me know your opinion and be kind. I don’t mean to be selfish if this sounds like it. Thank you

        • tnjman

          Leyla, did you ever get any help with funding a house? I’m sure others have succeeded at it. Are you a widow (your husband died?) – if so, I know an organization dedicated to helping widows and orphans.

          • Leyla

            No I never asked for help with it. I was just asking if people ever did it on gofundme before. I am not a widow I am single mom and my kids Father supportsaid us now. I was asking that if I started gofundme for asking help to purchase a home here in Virginia is that something someone has done before.

          • Ed Rhyan

            God bless brother, I was there too except the VA continues to deny I have PTSD. Make sure you look into the Home Loan Guarantee. I bought my house well before i went to Iraq. I had no down payment at all with it. Since then I did a re-fi and dropped my interest rate down to 4.2% A inspector also goes through the house cost free before you actually buy it and lets you know whats wrong with it… paid by the VA. Its only now that I am having problems with that much better mortgage. Not sure what your MOS was but if it involved loud noises claim Tinnitus, that will get you started with 10% disability or add on to what you have already..

          • Tamara Miller

          • WellAdjustedAndroid

            I already wrote a letter to my state AG about private businesses using the language of philanthropy to “accept donations.” Set your gym up as a 501 and make it a true public good (the favorable tax treatment can be used to subsidize memberships, putting fitness within the reach of lower income people who can’t afford neighborhood gyms.)

            But people are going to start a FOR-PROFIT business and ask for a donation? Sell me debt or equity, but don’t ask me for free money to help build your business that you will take profit from. If I were a bank loan officer, I would black list any small business I found on line doing this as it just screams your business plan sucks.

            Recently there was a case of a for profit animal hospital in my area taking gofundme donations to cover damage after their pipes burst. Their insurance company is going to cover those losses (and they freely admitted that!) So they are gong to take $20k from the animal loving public to expand the business, and get made whole for their losses by their insurance carrier.

            This should be illegal under many states consumer protection laws.

          • Lloyd Nicolaas

            I am not an American – but certainly don’t feel much for such a party because I think all people, not matter what, should get free medical care.
            Can you tell me why you think its good to oppose any plan to make medical care in the U.S. more feasible for all citizens? That seems so very selfish to me. And when republicans get sick, do they switch to the democrats? Or should only the merciful pay for the unfortunate?

          • Morgan O’Brien-Bledsoe

            His disdain for universal health care seems stupid to me since he’s losing his home due to medical bills. If he, and all those stupid republicans, voted anything but republican then maybe we’d have universal health care and his normal taxes would have paid for his health problems and he’d still have his home and be able to afford eggs. But HE can’t be expected to keep OTHER people stay well. That’s communism. It’s better he lose his home and not be able to afford eggs then poor people like himself have taxpayer health care.

          • Lloyd Nicolaas

            Maybe we shouldn’t call it stupid but a choice. I am really curious. Couldn’t it be that some people just want society to be ‘ winner takes all’ ? But when not being that winner they continue by finding ways to get their hands on money however they can. I suppose even begging and theft can be considered free market stategies. But I don’t think crime is a very ethical way of doing. And needing to beg is not very civilized. One day in the future we will have civilization. I hope. In Europe at least we are more near to that day.

          • Buckshot67

            Yes and in your European “utopia” you also don’t have the freedoms we do. I seen your European politics at work, your in o way better than us in the US.

            I completely agree with your ideals. I feel exactly the same way. I hope some day our country wakes up and changes although I don’t feel that this is going to happen anytime soon… It’s why after college we are looking at moving somewhere else.. I’m ashamed of our country.

          • Nathan Gray

            I live in the United States of course… Didn’t know if i’d made that obvious. =)

          • Lloyd Nicolaas

            Good Nathan. But no need to be ashamed, there are people with such extremist ideas everywhere. In Europe there is a tendency to chose more strict liberal ways again I am sad to witness.
            Its understandable because free market has been the engine to economic succes. But in its harsher form it has these nasty drawbacks that are even counterproductive (more expenses for crime and greediness and even demotivation it seems from recent research).
            I think its good to explain to as many people as possible to get more awareness on this issue. The politicians will not do it as they are like the driver of the car that just goes where the electorate tells them to go.

          • Buckshot67

            There’s no such thing as “free” medical care. All medical care costs someone money. Nothing is free. First you said free, then you say “more feasible.” Im all for making medical care more affordable, but I’m not for forcing tax payers to pay for anyone else’s medical care. You say it sounds selfish. What gives you the right to demand generosity from others? Id argue its selfish to expect others to pay for your health care. Here’s a clue before you go ballistic on my political affiliation. I am a Republican. I also lost my job and had to take early retirement. I have been on Hospice due to Parkinson’s Disease and a genetic metabolism disorder that caused it. I’ve lost everything and cant afford meds most times, and only survive at all due to my Firefighters pension that I was able to take early because I had enough years of WORK in. No I didn’t change to Democrat, no I didn’t change the opinion I stated above. No I did /do not think someone “owes me help”. No I don’t think I’m entitled to force people to give me all the medical care I need. And yes only those who want to help those in need should have to do so. Its absurd to suggest you’ll force someone to be “merciful”. What you suggest is redistribution-legalized thievery of resources that belong to someone else to give to another. Yes Im sick. No I cant afford treatment. But Id never shame myself expecting someone else should be robbed to give me what I need.

          • Lloyd Nicolaas

            Buckshot67, thank you for your reply.
            I think I understand your words. Nothing is free for you. It seems you believe your free enterprise market system is the only possible system. Maybe you should try to understand what I was saying means that we all are born with rights. It’s my opinion we born with a right to air, to sun, to space, to safety. I think you will agree with that thus far. I think we also have a right to a part of the natural resources. Perhaps the republicans feel we don’t have that right: there must be a reason to work so we use the resources as all the other products that are made: things to buy.
            Its funny that you don’t know of anything that is free. But the sunshine is free. Walking on the streets is still free. The fresh air in the forests is still free. Some people have decided that riding a car over the roads is not free (I suppose its also like that in the U.S.). Maybe you are beginning to understand what I mean: free or paid is a decision. Of course the hospitals need to have money for their employees. What my suggestion means is that it would be more civilized to have the medical institutes financed with money from non-individual sources. I think its humiliating to have people needing to beg for medical help.
            I think free enterprise has its advantages – but its not to be taken too absolute. Don’t forget that you are imposing your system over others – even the unborn.

          • Tim Cantrell

            Your salary and pension were paid for by taxpayers, you were a firefighter correct? That was paid for by taking peoples money and calling it taxes. Taxes are paid to cover the cost of social services. Why do you think that medical care shouldn’t be classified as a social service? We aren’t talking about you taking my hard working money, so you can go buy a new Camaro. There’s a difference between civil responsibility, and stealing. Just because you WORKED for that paycheck, and saved someone’s life or home putting out a fire, doesn’t change the fact your paycheck was paid for by taxes. Why couldn’t Doctor’s receive their paycheck from taxes as well, working as a civil servant. You know the same way police, jailor’s, firefighters, government officials, and others are paid. Your whole argument contradicts itself.

            Maybe you could reply Buckshot. Do you really think liberalism is about people getting what they deserve? Is liberalism fair? Is it civilized?

          • Pamela Kennedy

            So you’re willing to lay down and die if you can’t afford to stay alive. Bravo. Hope that happens SOON. People like you should just go do what they want the rest of us to do if we can’t afford medical treatment. Die and decrease the surplus population. And decrease the amount of people who THINK LIKE THAT.

          • Nathan Gray

            You are just a horrible person and have nothing but rude and nasty things to say to people Pamela.

          • Nathan Gray

            YOU are the one talking about people dying and crap you disgusting person… I don’t care who you disagree with- telling someone they need to die makes you a disgusting excuse for a human being.. You are sick and need help. I’m done here too… Seek help soon Pamela before it’s too late.

            Fuck Making Medical For Free. I work very hard for what I earn. I Despise “helping” people who do absolutely nothing everyday yet still get free healthcare and food and housing from the government. If your a human that only wants to do nothing with their life. They shouldn’t get anything. Only the people who actually try. Thanks.

            You are a disgusting person and should now proceed to go play in traffic. Your lack of humanity has no place in society.

            “When Republicans get sick” – they have health care because they have all the good paying jobs that they got through CONNECTIONS with or without their college degrees. Or they “pulled themselves up by their bootstraps” right out of high school. “When Republicans get sick” – they have all the f***ing MONEY.

          • Lloyd Nicolaas

            well thats what I ecpected. But it turns out there are still republicans needing to beg here.

      Don’t I know it! My husband suffered a cardiac arrest and had to have a defibrillator installed. He can never do his job, welding again, due to the electromagnetic energy it produces. He has also suffered from shortness of breath, weakness, and fainting spells since. I have struggled trying to support us and our daughter on a minimum wage job, and we also have huge medical bills, as we were uninsured at the time. It is very disheartening to see silly causes getting huge funds, while we are having such a terrible time. Below is the link is anyone is interested. Thanks.

    I have no idea how crowdfunding works, or even if my situation would warrant creating such an account. I’m a single mom raising 4 kids on my own (ages 10-16–we’re almost there!) We are currently living with my parents, which makes things somewhat crowded. Recently, a friend of mine had her infant taken by child services and they’ve given me temporary guardianship (court date on Aug. 19th will hopefully resolve everything). I’m not sure if the baby will stay with me or will be moved elsewhere, but I’m pretty much the only mom she’s ever known. I would love to be able to purchase a home so my kids will all have their own space but even working 2 jobs I can’t seem to gain any traction because something always happens to drain what money I am able to set aside for a down payment.

    I know my situation is probably the furthest away from what GFME was designed for. I’ve read many of the posts below and people have set them up for vet/medical bills for a family member, college costs, charity, etc. Since it seems most people here no much more than I do about these things so any comments (that are not personal attacks) will be welcome.

    I am reguestingTo All Our Family, Friends and Associates,

    Help! Please! we’re at wit’s end with nowhere to turn. We’ve been hard workers all of our lives and we have helped many family and friends throughout the years, but right now we’re in a terrible spot and need critical home repairs prior to winter for health reasons. My wife Cheri, is afflicted with COPD on Oxygen and on disability. She cannot work because breathing is too difficult. I am still recovering from injuries and though working,,our financial resources have been used up fighting our way out of mortgage situation, spiraling medical bills and just a lot of life’s adversity. The money we saved for the repairs went to the bills. Prior to winter, our home desperately needs a roof and siding and to ease my wife’s struggle to breathe, our air and heating systems have to be repaired and upgraded. Refinancing, loans and credit cards are not options in this and if we don’t have the repairs done my wife cannot remain here and our family could break up, We have a site that explains the situation in detail at http://www.gofundme.com/ba6360.
    Please email this request to as many of your contacts as you can with your own comments. This would help a lot.

    Thank you and God Bless!

    Well, let me start off by saying that I’ve taken a decent look other people’s comments on here and the kind of things they’re trying to get donations for. So with that in mind, when people take a look at my GoFundMe page, I wouldn’t be surprised if some people think certain things of me or something. My page isn’t for something like medical expenses, emergency funds, or anything like that. It’s something that I’m doing for myself.

    Here’s my GoFundMe page if you wish to take a look and if you feel like doing so, make a donation:

    I plan on making a trip to Japan next year. It’s been a place I’ve wanted to see and experience for myself for a long while now. And as some people know, Japan is definitely not a cheap trip. I’m not expecting or asking my whole trip and expenses to be covered by family, friends, or strangers. I would never ask for that. But like I said, it won’t be a cheap trip either. So with that said, any financial support I can get for this would be greatly appreciated and put to good use.

    Thanks for reading and have a nice day. And even if you choose not to donate, I still appreciate you taking the time to at least read my page.

    I have always had a dream of playing football at the next level. I knew the only way to do that was to have a strong faith in God and to be a good student. Education and hard work can get me where I want to go. Last year, I was attending college at Warner University near Lake Wales, Florida. I was happy to be at a good school and also have the opportunity achieve my dream of playing football at the next level. Unfortunately, my world changed when my momma was diagnosed with cancer and became real sick. My obligation to my faith is very important to me, but my obligation to my family is just as important. I had to make a choice; either leave school and help care for my momma and spend as much time as I could while she was still here

  • Kennedy Wallace

    Hello, Everyone!
    My name is Kennedy Wallace, I’m a flautist at
    Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts
    (BTWHSPVA) in Dallas, TX, and I’m seeking your support.

    Over the course of my high-school career, I’ve received recognition and
    numerous awards as both a soloist and an ensemble performer. Now,
    my long-term goal is to combine a career as a music teacher and
    recognized performer — and, to accomplish this, I need the right tools.

    BTWHSPVA is tremendously successful in training beginning flute
    players, and I’m grateful for all they’ve taught me — but I’m ready now
    to attend a school that focuses solely on helping good young musicians
    become great. Attending the Interlochen Arts Academy next year is the
    next toward ensuring that I’m ready to apply to the University of
    Michigan and the Eastman School of Music, where I hope to join Amy
    Porter’s or Bonita Boyd’s flute studio.

    While my experience at Booker T. Washington has been amazing, I know that
    attending Interlochen in the year ahead will better prepare me for the
    rigorous, nerve-wracking auditions I will face as I apply to collegiate
    music programs.

    Hi! So, I’ve been struggling in terms of finding a way to kickstart my art endeavors (I’ve set up a shop but find it hard to get all of the materials I need to really get started).

    I left my home without a penny to my name (for abuse/more personal reasons), and I’m trying to pursue my ultimate goal of putting myself on the map as an artist, y’know? While I don’t want it to sound gimmicky, or sob story-ish, would that be a good thing to include on my campaign? I just need the boost, and my goal is relatively small compared to other artists that I’ve seen do this.

    Thank you for the insightful information. I am not exactly happy about asking anyone for anything, but I had to put that aside and give this a real shot. We are $60 away from the public viewing. I’m not sure how much the public viewing helps, but it can’t hurt, right?

    I’ve shared on social media. One thing that might help also is to ask that everyone share your story just once. Also, encourage your friends to pass your information along to their sources. Where they would go if they needed help. Charities, churches and so on.

    Please, anyone, consider taking a look at our page and sharing some pointers. Have an amazing day.

  • Starr

    I’m desperately trying to pay my tuition bill to finish my Mater’s of Public Health. I am one semester away from completion, but have depleted any resources to get this far. I am trying to raise money to wrap this up and move on. Post-graduation, I am hoping to be accepted into the Peace Corps to give back and gain hands on experience in my field. I chose public health because it seemed the best way to help the most people short of hoping for “world peace”. Please consider donating to my page.

    Good tips!

    However, I am just a small-town girl with a Facebook network of <250 friends. Times like this, I wish I were one of those serial adders.

    I am a student nurse unable to afford veterinary care for a life-threatening situation for my kitty, so if anyone out there reads this and wants to help me out on the sharing front, here is my campaign:

    Like most students I am always broke. I finally got the chance to come to the UK to study my dream major and after just one due to being in between so many eligibility rules I don’t have the funds to attend. If anybody could possible just look and share I’d be thankful. I’d be positively giddy if you could donate. Thank you.

  • Cheyenne Fox

    Hello all. If you could take a minute and look at my gofundme page please. I’m fighting chronic pain due to Fibromyalgia, Chiari Malformation, and a brain cyst. Medications make me feel worse, and the withdrawal from taking so many is terrible. I started this to help raise money to be able to move me and mother (whom I live with since I cannot work) to Hawaii. I am going to seek alternative treatment, and I have many family members there whom i never get to see. I live in Ohio and there’s really nothing I can do here. I have applied for disability. I have plans to go to school to help people with the same problems. Even if you cannot donate, I would greatly appreciate if you could share this. Thank you for taking the time to read this. http://www.gofundme.com/cowlwo

  • Jae Hernandez

    Hi there, everyone.

    I don’t ever ask for help financially for any reason, but this was something that I simply cannot tackle on my own. I’ve started up this campaign (called Remembering Bella) for my dog, Bella, who was put to sleep on August 18. It wasn’t my decision, but something my parents decided while I was away, and left me with the veterinary expenses. Not only that, but the training school I had her in is making me pay for the remaining classes that Bella will not be able to attend. Her campaign is here:

    http://www.gofundme.com/da0uq4

    All funds raised will be going straight to those expenses, as I barely make enough to pay my basic bills. Any little bit of help counts, and I openly donate to other causes such as this, so I am hoping a bit of support comes my way as well. Thanks for taking the time to read this.

    I started a gofundme page for my daughter and we are looking for donations and some attention for her story. She was inspired to go to nursing school after the ordeal our family endured when her oldest daughter, at five years old, was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor. She was only the fourth case ever at CHMC since the 1980s when this type of tumor was discovered. Destinee is now in remission after four years, but continues testing to make sure the tumor hasn’t grown back. My daughter needs help with her tuition to finish out nursing school. She has exhausted all grants and loan opportunities.

    Please check out the page I made, please make a donation if you can, every little bit helps. In the meantime, if you have any questions, feel free to contact us. Thanks for your time and attention.

  • One thing I get now is that Money goes where there is already Money. I have been trying in every way possible to work and save so I can pay my last college bill and get my damn diploma sent to me but neither my school wants to understand the situation in which I am nor others. Making money to pay my school bill requires me to get a job getting a job requires me to send my diploma so I can prove companies I graduated and getting my diploma requires me to pay that bill off. Vicious circle hahahaha.

    When we made our gofundme page, we really didn’t think it would be this hard. I remember telling my fiancee when we were running out of ideas, “Hey, this guy just got thousands for potato salad! I’m sure people will help us.” So far we’ve raised $0 and I although we’ve shared our page almost everywhere we could think of, I feel like we’re just spamming the internet now. Are there any other platforms where it would be appropriate to share our page? Most ones I come across are just for kickstarters. We’re a family with triplets that has run into really hard times and are being evicted on September 1st. Here’s the link: http://www.gofundme.com/djdvtg

    I’m getting extremely desperate, and have no idea where to post this. Both of my parents passed away within 6 weeks of each other, and I have been left to find the funeral funds. Considering my family has always been poor, this is beyond difficult. Tried to set up a GoFundMe account as a last resort, but I am getting absolutely no luck.
    I have no family left that I have contact with, and I realistically don’t have any friends. I can’t share this with the people on FB as none of them know my personal circumstances and I don’t wish for any of them to know.

    So, if anyone could help, I’d be extremely grateful… even to spread it around on the internet? Either way, thank you if you took the time to read this. :/

    http://www.gofundme.com/ezoygg

    Right after my 16th birthday I gave my birth my son Matthew. Being a single parent for the first few years I did my best to juggle a full time job and full time college. I ended up dropping out of college because I found myself never getting to see my son. Student loans came anyway, and being unable to pay them off they went into collections. I am currently consolidating my student loans and making the payments that I can.

    I plan on starting my career as a Nurse, enrolling in University of Arlington. I will be able to complete most of my courses online while still having time with my family and working part time. Once I pay my loans consecutively for one year, I will be able to reapply for another one. For now, I am hoping someone out there can help me get through the first few semesters in any way they can. I have a loving husband who helps the best he can but I know that he will not be able to keep up with all of our bills.

    I want to show my children that everyone gets a second chance and that mommy can do something beautiful for people, helping them throughout their life. I have always wanted to be a Nurse and hope someday I can receive my Doctorate. Thank you for any help, even $10 will make a difference.

    Trying to help my room mate and his grandfather. My room mate Blaine has been diagnosed with a Chronic Liver Disease and while he does have insurance the bills are still going to be rather steep. His grandfather is 80 and the more he is finding about Blaine’s condition the more stress that is falling on him. The two of them are more or less family to me so I want to help alleviate as much stress as I can. I have no clue what I will be able to raise through gofundme but I’ll stay optimistic. http://www.gofundme.com/Blaines-Liver

  • jada tabbs

    my life
    My name is Jada Tabbs and I’ve just graduated highschool on June 5,2014. I was removed from my parents home at 17 and placed to live with my older sister, because my adoptive father was abusive. I found out my financial aid hasn’t been processed .My college advisor told me to see if my parents would do my fasfa because that was the only other way I could get it done in time..I called them and they agreed to do it , then later that evening they called back saying the didn’t want to be identity theft and someone to steal their information. When I asked for them to come to flint with me to do the paperwork there they refused..so for the past few weeks I’ve been running from place to place trying to track down my CPS worker who removed me from my home , so that I could get her statement and send to the college to acess my grants or other money I qualify for to go to school. So far I haven’t gotten anywhere. My college advisor said that If I could get parent refusal forms signed then I’d be able to get a loan. But my parents refused to sign it. Now my classes are terminated and I can’t go to any institution or college to further my education . I really want to get an education because I refuse to be another statistic. I am at loss because the people who took me in to give me a better life,won’t even sign simple forms so that I can get an education. My education is very important to me because all my life I have done very good in school. Most importantly I feel like I have came to far to stop now .

    This is a very interesting article. I have recently started a gofundme campaign to pay for my mother’s medications. She has had Multiple Sclerosis since 97′ and raised me as a single parent working overtime for years paying my way through college. Since being put on Medicare recently, out of pocket costs are enormously high. I am working 2 jobs and it is now my turn to help her financially so I am asking for any help you can give. There is a video on my gofundme page as well my mom’s story. Please take a moment to read, watch, share, or donate. God Bless! http://www.gofundme.com/gailsstory

    It’s SO difficult to get donations! Some people strike it lucky and get famous with a potato salad campaign while others struggle to raise a couple of hundreds for charity. It’s a tough world! I just set up a gofundme for my graduation fund and it has not even gotten a single hit. I encourage you to visit my page and find it in your heart to donate if you find my cause worthy(read my about statement).

    My younger sister lost her life to depression at the age of 17 early this year.

    She was a wonderful sister and friend, and her death has affected a countless number of people, myself included.

    The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) is accepting donations for research, education, and advocacy; I encourage you to consider donating to them:
    http://afsp.donordrive.com/
    Donations in honor of my sister can be found by typing “#LoveJS” into the fundraiser search bar at the top right.

    The money goes directly to the AFSP, so please consider donating to them, regardless of whether or not you choose to donate through #LoveJS.

    There are things more important in life than potato salad, and I am overwhelmingly inspired by the generosity of the people in this comment section. For everyone asking for donations for medical bills, food, shelter, etc… Never give up! There are always people willing to help if you search long enough.

    And Thank You to every one of the beautiful souls who donate their extra money to those in desperate need of it. You really are saving lives.

A lot of his help came from family and friends however, he got a couple of donations from people we don’t know. I wasn’t sure about letting him do this but, he really has learned a lot from this experience. He wrote his story, does his own thank you cards, and has been recycling different kinds of metal to help himself too. I’m very proud of him! He hasn’t reached his goal yet but he never gets upset and he doing extra work around our neighbor to help support his fund!!

    My father recently passed away on October 15th due to a blood clot after he’d just had surgery almost a day prior. Myself and his family are left with the great financial burden of paying for his funeral. His insurance only covered for so much and now my family is left with paying the rest of it. My wife, the kind spirited person that she is, set up a GoFundMe account for donations to help cover the costs. My dad was a kind-hearted person who would give the shirt off of his back if someone else needed it more than he did. He was always doing and never expected anything in return. He was truly a selfless person. In the last year he had turned his life over to the Lord and was a humble servant to God. He wanted to spread the word and love of God in any way he could possibly do. My dad was like my best friend, my only regret was that I didn’t get alot of opportunity to see him. I’m not expecting anyone to donate, but even if you can only donate a dollar or not anything at all, even a prayer or sharing this link would help. I felt lead by God to try and reach out to other people other than those on my personal Facebook, just as my dad felt lead by God to spread His word. Thanks for taking the time to read this and God bless you all.

    My poor Bella the boston terrier has been through a lot. I really love my dog, and would do anything for her. She has been there for me when I had nobody. I have put myself in the hole a little over $5,000 for her, and I would keep going if I had to. This is a huge weight to have. I have been very stressed out over all of this. This has been a very emotional time, and has been affecting my work, though they have been supportive of my time off. I feel they are pushing their limits with this. I have also gone through some major dental surgery, and this has made this whole situation much more difficult for me. I am looking for a little help. I have set up a go fund me. I have been sharing it every way I can think of, trying to get some kind of help. I haven’t had any luck so far. I am unsure if it is how my article Is written, or if people think I’m just trying to get money.

    I agree with many of these comments. Pisses me off that there are many people out there that need funds for legitimate causes &/or problems. Many of these campaigns are taking advantage of good site. I have a gofundme for my husband set up for his medical needs. He needs surgery asap or he will be paralyzed. He lost his job while in the hospital for 6 days which is unbelievable to knock a man down when he is already down. This was all out of the blue. He has never been sick or asked for any charity. He has always been a person to volunteer his time and $ for benefits and fundraisers for those in need in the past. We never thought in a million years we would ever have to do a fundraiser for ourselves. You can read his story here. If you can take a second to share or donate (any amount would be helpful, even $1 would help) it would be so greatly appreciated. We are so thankful for any help we can get. May God bless you all! gofundme.com/h6ljpk

    In our case, it is not a life or death situation, but a quality of life situation. Our mom is now losing her home for the 2nd time due to medical issues- this time associated with horrible nerve damage from a failed arthroscopic hip surgery, along with torn muscles, SI joint issues, a trimmed labrum and uneven hip bones from bone shaving during the surgery. Her chronic pain, swelling, and uneven bones are affecting every minute of her life. She is now signed up to teach a class for others in pain called, “Writing Away Your Pain” at a local botanical garden. The nerve meds doctors prescribed her gave her a mini-stroke (TIA). She continues to fight for a pain-free life. We (her 3 kids) are trying to do anything we can do to help her pay her medical bills so she can continue to search for help. If anyone has any advice on dealing with Posterior Femoral Cutaneous Nerve damage, please contact me. Her GoFundMe and full story can be found here: http://www.gofundme.com/hipytk

I am a mother of 6 and my husband and I got our house foreclosed on because they kept raising our mortgage until it became impossible for us to be able to keep up. Last year a ma bought our house in auction and has allowed us to stay until we can get into a new place. It is so hard for us to save the money to get into a place because its first and last months rent and then deposits on utilities. We have been saving for a little over 6 months in an account now and have 250 dollars 🙁 We are hoping to get into a new place before/by Christmas. We thank any and all who have been kid enough to find it in their hearts to help, Thank you and God Bless!

    I need help. Badly. I’m strugging right now and having a hard time finding faith and believing things will work out. I don’t know what else to do. I always donate $5 or $10 here and there to people in the same situation, or usually even far worse situations so I decided to follow their steps and created a gofundme page. I wouldn’t be asking unless it was necessary. I am willing to do anything it takes (donating when I get back on track, helping others in need, volunteering, etc.) I’m afraid for a lot of things right now and not being able to pay my bills and keep a roof over my head is one of them. I don’t have family to turn to so I’m reaching out online http://t.co/mykklIhg9K even a simple reshare helps so much. Thank you everyone. Tamara

  • Ashley Lynch

    It’s ridiculous that someone can raise so much money for a joke to make potato salad. I just started my GoFundMe campaign, and I know that there are so many people out there looking for help on so many different situations. I want to be able to pay tuition for my last semester of college. While those who don’t work and don’t try, get financial aid and everything handed to them, some people are just struggling to pay their bills and be able to live off of what they actually work for. Not everyone who gets financial aid is using the system, a lot of people really do need the help. I do not receive any help for school. It is all out of pocket. So I am trying to be proactive and spread the word. Anything helps, thank you! http://www.gofundme.com/iclat8

    Hi all,

    I smiled when I read about disdain for universal health care. Want to see it in action?

    In the fund link below, you will see a link to a video that featured Christopher having a titanium knee fitted to replace the knee surrounded by cancer.

    WARNING!!! This is a video of the actual procedure – it’s graphic.

    But as you watch the high tech hospital, and the knee part valued at around $20,000, imagine for a second the financial impact that would have had without such health care.

    No contest for me – universal health care all the way. For non essential operations you may well wait a little longer – but at least you wont lose your home.

    Christopher was diagnosed on a Friday, and chemo started the following Tuesday. I know, he’s my son.

    my son’s surgery fundraiser isn’t through gofundme, but I notice that alot of people share his fundraiser but don’t donate. I feel that even if it’s a dollar it can help. I just pray that we’ll find a way to get the money together. I’m diabetic and can barely afford my own medications, but I keep trying for my little one. I don’t have anything stupid to post that will raise funds, only serious matters. Here’s my son’s fundraiser link to anyone who wants to help or cares.

    Hello friend, i want to share my testimony on how i got my BLANK ATM
    card which have change my life today. i was once living on the street
    where by things were so hard for me, even to pay off my bills was very
    difficult for me i have to park off my apartment and start sleeping on
    the street of Vegas. i tried all i could do to secure a job but all went
    in vain because i was from the black side of America. so i decided to
    browse through on my phone for jobs online where i got an advert on
    Hackers advertising a Blank ATM card which can be used to hack any ATM
    Machine all over the world, i never thought this could be real because
    most advert on the internet are based on fraud, so i decided to give
    this a try and look where it will lead me to if it can change my life
    for good. i contacted this hackers and they told me they are from
    Australia and also they have branch all over the world in which they use
    in developing there ATM CARDS, this is real and not a scam it have help
    me out. to cut the story short this men who were geeks and also experts
    at ATM repairs, programming and execution who taught me various tips
    and tricks about breaking into an ATM Machine with a Blank ATM card.i
    applied for the Blank ATM card and it was delivered to me within 3 days
    and i did as i was told to and today my life have change from a street
    walker to my house, there is no ATM MACHINES this BLANK ATM CARD CANNOT
    penetrate into it because it have been programmed with various tools and
    software before it will be send to you. my life have really change and i
    want to share this to the world, i know this is illegal but also a
    smart way of living Big because the government cannot help us so we have
    to help our self. if you also want this BLANK ATM CARD i want you to
    contact the Hackers email on ANDREWMODRIC@OUTLOOK.COM and you life will

    PLEASE HELP my husband, two cats and I stay OFF THE STREETS. We finally got on our feet and my wallet was stolen. I am the only one receiving disability in my household and as soon as I received my $1000 for this month, my wallet with all the cash was stolen (I don’t have a bank account due to bad financial history as a teenager and bad life mistakes – I honestly hate carrying cash for this is my ultimate fear) We only have a week left to pay rent on the room we rent. Please help us stay in our place with our babies, they are the sole reason I wake up in the morning these days. We will pay it forward as soon as we are on our feet.

    The potato salad one kind of pisses me off. I had to start one for help my cat’s medical issues. He gets blockages…which can be deadly. And of course there’s no real way to prevent them it seems (I’ve tried just about everything). His latest incident happened over the weekend…you know…not long after the holidays when I can barely afford the current bills and put food on the table. So I had to resort to this. If anyone would like to help…I’d definitely be in your debt. http://www.gofundme.com/shadykel

  • Hello. 🙂

    My love of writing began many years ago, but what began
    as a love has since developed into a full-fledged desire to become a
    professional writer. I have a number of books I have made some progress
    on and would like to finish and publish (poetry, science fiction,
    fantasy, semi-autobiographical), but life has a way of raising the bar
    higher the more you want to reach it.

    The past two years have
    been especially hard. Last year I was diagnosed with Graves Disease
    after five years of supposedly unrelated health problems, and while I
    was happy and relieved to finally get a diagnosis, the medications
    (methimazole – for my thyroid – and propranolol – to help slow down my
    racing heart) cause more problems than they solve. (On a side note, I
    would appreciate any natural recommendations; I’m losing my hair and my
    liver and heart are not tolerating the methimazole well.) Around that
    time, I also took up a second job tutoring to make ends meet, leaving me
    with even less time than I had before to write.

    I would
    appreciate any support to help reach my goal of becoming a professional
    writer, no amount is too small. I would love to be able to raise enough
    money to quit my second job for a few months or more in order to set
    aside time for righting while still being able to get by. I would be so
    grateful, and thank you for taking the time to read this.

    All the Best,

    Addy Helena Sewell
    Friend me on FB: https://www.facebook.com/HelanaSewell1

    P.S.:
    I put some of my work below so you can get an idea of who I am and what
    I’m trying to extract from myself. I’ll post more when I can. Thanks,
    again. 🙂

    “Handle With Care”

    Leave her alone
    The excitement stirs her,
    unsettles the calm of her soul and haunts it
    All her days, she hides
    behind her hair
    She observes the motions to life, and
    disconnects
    the images inside
    forgetting places
    Cradle her
    She is full of glass, and
    the eyes of the world may break her

    “You’ll be fine. It’s just another ending, sweetheart.”

    Is it, now
    Just
    A something
    A nothing
    A dead and one-time-only thing
    Is it just
    A thing
    Is it me, or is it you
    Is it blonde, is it witty
    Does it wrap its legs around you
    Is it waiting in your bedroom
    And who is fine
    Is it just another ending
    Another coda
    Another one-more-time
    Stolen
    Ending
    Is it my sweet heart
    Ending
    Will you be fine
    My sweetheart

    I’ve been discouraged too. First trying to help get attention to my daughter’s page so she could get the money she needed to pay the rest of her school bill so that her entire schedule and LIFE (yes it was really that impacting) would not be upheaved and she could graduate on time. Now I’m trying to raise money to make a nearly 3000 mile trip back east in May so that I can SEE her graduate. This is a once in a lifetime event, but outside of one very generous donation from a close friend, there has been NOTHING. Zero, zip, zilch, nada.

    And I know what I’m going to say next is gonna make me sound like a jealous whinypants (I promise, I’m not) but just 2 months ago a friend made one to gather funds to get a special holiday gift for another friend and man, the outpouring was instant. Of course I donated too — I love my friends after all and I wanted to be part of making her face light up with this special gift — but I couldn’t help but think wow, I wonder if people would give that readily if it had been a plea to help with fixing her broken down car. I wonder why people in general donate so eagerly to something like a surprise gift but don’t give as readily to help with real needs that are on a fixed timetable, whether it’s this event for me or someone who’s Pa is terminally ill, or someone about to lose their home.

    It boggles the mind and I really just don’t understand what is going on that would explain that quirk of human behavior, or how to get around it. Please check out my campaign and if you have any suggestions to improve it I’m eager to listen. Thanks.

  • Hello. It has been difficult to use FB as a source for funding. As much as I help others…I cannot seem to get anyone to donate $1-$25 to help me with my start-up. Is there another way to spread my gofundme project? I even lowered the funding amount, after reviewing other gofundme projects. I doing all that I can to regain my life back. It’s been difficult, but I am doing all that I can to do just that. I am not able to get any loans…etc. Please let me know if there is something I need to do to appeal more to those who would like to help. Thanks.

    Project Hope: Detroit is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of individuals and families experiencing financial, social, and emotional hardship within the local community by using a collaboration of resolution and preventative based services.

    We are currently in the process of becoming 501(c)3 certified but until then I figured that building awareness and campaigning for donations couldn’t hurt. As of right now, you are not able to write off any donations for Project Hope: Detroit off with the IRS.

    While my co-workers and I are currently building the backbone of this organization (website, securing a location, funding initiatives, etc.) we have accepted some families that need our help. We are truly grateful for any donation amount that we receive. If you donate an amount greater than or equal to $20.00, we would like to give you a small token of our gratitude by sending you a free Project Hope: Detroit shirt! I hope everyone can share this dream of mine and help give to families that are less fortunate than us. With any donation, monetary or good(s), you can help build something that’s bigger than all of us.

    For further information, please do not hesitate to contact us with questions/comments.

  • I have set up a gofundme account for my family. I’m literally getting myself so upset, waiting for the phone to ring for a job interview so I can help out, but that never happens. Calls to check on resumes are yielding no interviews. Having that stress on top of the stress of a custody battle we didn’t plan on at the moment, and me not finding work are putting a significant strain on our family. With my disorder, it makes it even more difficult for me to find work bc of lack of being able to keep jobs, and it doesn’t make the stress right now better. Gofundme.com/logr7c

    Please help me spread the word for gofundme for my mom..
    This last year has been a hard year on my mom. Her dad has heart failure and dementia. On top of that her husband also has a bad heart. She is constantly worring. She moved out of her home and moved in with her dad (my grandfather) to take care of him . She herself has many health issues that keep her in pain but she just keeps going making sure everybody else is okay. She even needs knee replacment and hurts her just to walk but wont have it done for fear of long recovery time and not being able to take care of everybody. She has sacrificed so much to take care of everybody. She’s the best Mom,Daughter and Wife you could ever ask for. I just want her to know how appreciated she is. She wants her own used car so bad but cant afford one. It would help her out so much. I hope you can find it in your heart to please help her to be able to get one. Thank you & God Bless..

    I am unable to go through my family because none of them have wanted to
    help me, and over the years i lost nearly all my friends. Most of my
    family are the cause of my problem.
    I took care of my father who had
    cancer for a very long time, and it led to me losing everything because
    1. I wanted to do everything for him, my mother and the family and 2.
    Some of my siblings couldn’t be bothered to help. It went on for 12
    years until he died in 2013. And when i tried to get help to return my
    life back once more, i got no help from anyone. They actually left me to
    myself, with absolutely nothing. I gave everything and in the end, did
    not get a thing back. So i have had to continue the daily battle to claw
    back anything from my life, and because of the long absence from work
    and my field of work, everything changed and now, i must return to
    education for 2/3 years.
    I hesitated this because of feeling wrong
    about asking for help in this way, but i tried everything else so far
    and through the advice of a friend, signed up. Already wonderfully
    generous people have donated and supported my campaign which has
    overwhelmed me. After several years of hopelessness living in hell, i
    didn’t think i would find this kind of human affection and support. It’s
    truly humbling just how many people really do care. Please feel free to
    visit my campaign, you have no obligation to donate, but would be great
    of you to perhaps share the link forward. Thank you

  • I will be going off to college soon, in August actually; but theres an issue. The problem is that the college I want to attend is a bit out of my mother’s budget, maybe a lot! The University of Alabama is my school of choice, I’ve dreamt of one day walking on the same campus as Nick Saban, being in the enviroment of Tuscaloosa, and just getting a great education at a great institution. The campus is not too far from home, and the town where it is located is beautiful. I’m a first generation student, so everything is new to my mother. The major I chose is Pre-Med. That’s right, I want to be a doctor! I want to become a Sports Orthopedic Doctor, so I can help different athletes with there specific need. Please help me achieve my goal! Your contribution to my college fund will be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance! May God bless you! gofund.me/m75xa4

    Sometimes I wonder if people actual review your link when they see it sitting there, and to those that may really be needing the help, my best advice to you is to spread the word and then pray about it. I have kids and I can’t even get not a one person to hire me, I have been to so many different places to where I gave up, not because I wanted to but because I already knew it was due to discrimination, I can’t get a job because my dental is so bad and screwed over, due to lack of parenthood, when folks see me some assume I consume drugs all because we know drugs tend to mess with you in different forms, I haven’t ever did drugs and don’t intend on it, I just been through so much, but still standing strong for my babies, please check out my link maybe someone will have a heart and donate if not share, I need to get on the right track I been thru the most and this will really help

    I realize this is an odd place to post this but I am just trying to find anyone that will help this family. I personally do not know them. They live in a city in SK Canada where I used to live so I heard about their story through another friend on Facebook. Their 4 year old boy suffered a severe brain injury due to a fireplace mantle falling on his head. The mantle had not been secured correctly by their landlord. This little guy somehow survived. He is a true miracle. He is no where near okay however. He has a long way to go still. This family has large bills for the transportation to get him to the hospital where he brain surgery (plane and amublance) and are all struggling to get by now because of the time of work they all missed. They are also hoping to get justice for the little guy since they have no means to do this themselves. I see people get money for things all of the time but for some reason no one seems to want to donate to a family that is really in need. It is very sad and I just wanted to help spread the word for them. This story has even made it to the news there but still they have only raised $500 since the October. I just don’t understand it. I know there is a lot of fake gofundme’s so here is the grandmothers facebook where you can see all of his progress:https://www.facebook.com/sonia.fayant?fref=ts and here is the fundraiser link: http://www.youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/medical-needs-and-financial-help-for-dominic-/294478#.VOe9L58o-fh.facebook. I realize the likelihood of anyone donating who does not know this family is pretty slim but I am hoping there are some big hearted people somewhere out there. This family needs some help so they can focus on this little man. Please help.

    It does suck when people like myself are trying to raise the money that insurance won’t cover for my cancer removal surgery and it’s like everyone else is getting thousands and thousands of dollars for there dog or something like that I started a campaign to get the first payment for my surgery I need 1500 to put down and I have only been able to get 250 it’s very depressing.

  • Shannon Cavitt

    This has been one of the toughest journeys I’ve ever had to make in my life, and I’m not even the one who ‘really’ needs help. My husband is. He has cancer. It’s rare and it’s aggressive and we’re doing everything we can to give him the best chance to BEAT this.

    Chad is a US Veteran who has spent his life working hard, playing hard and giving each day everything he’s got. He is a father of four, ranging from 6 to 24 years old, and he is a grand-father of 3. He is a huge sports fan and he bleeds blue (KY Fans will understand that) Chad became an appendix cancer patient on January 7th. He’s been out of work since the beginning of January and will be for some time as we seek medical surgeries and treatment. Neither one of us ever thought we would be the type to ask for help, but Cancer makes a person do a lot of things they never thought they would have to do.

    This experience has been humbling and we are so sincerely appreciative of everyone who has already offered their love, support, prayers and of course donations. Being out of work, traveling for treatment and medical bills just add to the worry of getting through each day. My goal, as his wife – if to remove that burden from Chad’s mind so he can focus on getting better and kicking cancer’s ass. But I can’t do it alone. I truly appreciate your help: http://www.gofundme.com/helpchadcavitt

    Why can someone who needs a car to get to work raise over $300 thousand dollars, and someone in need of surgery and a home raise less than $200? After escaping an abusive marriage, suffering a physical injury as a result, having to leave college because of PTSD, I now need to move out of a relative’s house because she needs surgery on both her shoulders, and can no longer drive me to appointments and work. As a result, I must return to Chicago where, hopefully I can get the surgery that will repair my injury. Surgery or not, I need money to relocate and find housing. I set up a GoFundMe account that has only raised $180. I need to move out by April 1st. http://www.gofundme.com/leh7m8

  • Mellissa Webster

    I like the others here have had to ask for help from family & friends due to a recent tragedy. My fiancé and I have overcome so much, including drug addiction, homelessness and domestic violence just to crawl our way up and out of the gutter, start a new life and think we could breath easy for the first time. Well, we were wrong. Shaun was diagnosed with not 1 but 3 life threatening illnesses that could put him on a liver transplant list in less than 5 years. We knew something was wrong with him, he was lathargic, got winded easy, was turning yellow and had a swollen abdomen amongst other issues and we went to 6 doctors in two years. Most ignored his symptoms and assumed he was drug seeking. We were told to go to a pain clinic or have his methadone raised and sent home. We were honest with the doctors and told them about being on methadone and in recovery. HUGE MISTAKE. Finally a doctor took him seriously and ran a gamit of tests and ordered a biopsy of his liver. Stage 3 cirrhosis of the liver, fibrosis of the liver & kidneys and spleenomyglia were the diagnosises. Shaun never drank heavily and we were told that Shaun was just as unlucky as a non-smoker who gets lung cancer.
    Well, I’ve become the full time caretaker of my fiancé and I handle everything around the house, plus bring in our income. We postponed our wedding several times due to Shaun being sick and now we don’t have the funds to even do a simple justice of the peace ceremony. All we want is to be married while fighting this battle. He wants me to be the one making the decisions, able to decide about his medical care if he can’t and also he wants to make our love official in the eyes of everyone we know and love. I want to raise money so I can continue to care for him while I’m freelancing as a writer & to help pay for our daily needs. He’s in the process of getting his disability, but it’s a long tedious process. I want to buy a cheap car to get to his doctor appointments in. We take the bus to each visit, sometimes 3 times a week. If he has a treatment or procedure that day he has to carry a barf bag with him. I tell the bus driver ahead of time, but it’s still humiliating. I don’t want a new BMW, just an older still running car that can keep him from feeling like less than a man. This whole situation has put our mortality in perspective. It sucks. We are young. He’s 34 & I’m 36, we worked hard to have a life, to finally be self sufficient, start a family maybe, travel, go to school, live a life together that would make our families proud & all of that came crashing down. Please share our campaign with others you know or if you have ideas on how we can get our story heard, please leave a message in the comments section or find me on Facebook. If you can donate, I can’t express how much we appreciate every blessing. If 1500 people gave $1 our lives would change in a way that would be very profound. It would give us a new look on life, renew our faith in people. Thanks for reading my story.

    I’m seeking funds to purchase a used tractor so i can grow larger quantities of fresh vegetables for our local food pantry. All the recipients ever get is canned goods and outdated meats and some frozen foods. Never anything fresh and healthy. I’ve been looking for $15,000 to buy a used tractor, the implements and a irrigation pump so i can open up more growing areas on my property, but to date haven’t received one nickel in donations. I’ve spread the news in blogs, chatrooms, farm and garden websites and facebook,to no avail.I even applied for a Grant from the Stephen King Foundation, but they won’t select any grants till late july of this year. I’ve spent thousands of my own limited money (VA disability) building greenhouses and a special heated seedling room and started hundreds of seedlings in the speculation that i would be able to get an area cleared in time. But it looks like i’ll have to give the seedlings away.

    Hi,

    I made the leap and finally posted my plea for assistance on my facebook page. I was met with much criticism because in the months prior they saw me doing certain things like going to California and so forth. However, people only noticed the trip and for some reason do not understand that I drove to California to see family members. Truth be told, I ate dollar menu items and drove non stop night and day with the exception of 1 hotel stay for $39 because I was too exhausted to continue. They saw me hiking in California! They did not see that I needed to be around my family members so that they could pray for me, hug me and be supportive of me. Yes, I had a lot in the past and I did do many things in life! Who doesn’t ? but as of now I have been placed on a extended leave until 03/27/2015, I ended my lease early and I am trying to come up with money to pay for my bills/move, I still have medication and doctor visits to upkeep and I am working with my short term disability carrier to try and figure that part out. What they see ? My friend took me out for a coffee at Starbucks and I was told not to spend money and so they saw me doing something other than sitting at home. I have tried to communicate that this would just make me further depressed….. They also noticed me spending time with my good friends dog. I did this because she helps reduce the stress and depression I feel. Again, people only see what they want to see and would much rather donate toward other causes or offer the opinions of why I am in this spot. I would love to say, I DIDN’T exactly aspire to be chronically ill nor did I ever intend on being off work nor would any amount of savings be helpful right now. I exhausted all my resources between July 2014 and March 2015! At this point, I will admit that I am trying all possible avenues to ensure a flow of income. This has included selling nearly all of my personal items. IE when I move from my own apartment to a friends, I will have 1 t.v, clothes and my bed. Any help would be appreciated at this point as I have already given up 75 % of my life to try and make this all work. It is seriously hard to go from extremely independent with no financial worries to liquidation which is why I tried to make this all work in the first place.

    My go fund me page is gofund.me/nwjot4 Please consider helping me.

    Thank you,

    Jeffery Irwin

    I know someone who set up a gofundme account and is not being truthful. It’s sad someone can take advantage of their friends, many of whom are in much worse financial condition than he is; he is using his illness for profit.

  • Jade Lawrence

    I love donating to help others and would prefer volunteering over paid work any day. Asking for donations for a personal cause feels so backwards to me. However, I am quickly learning a lesson in swallowing my pride and admitting that I need help. Take a minute to read about my educational path and donate if you wish! gofundme.com/op4460

    I have had a gofundme page for close to two weeks. My sister started it for me because I need a reliable vehicle. I was going to get a vehicle with my tax return but all of it was taken for student loans. I would be fine without a vehicle if I didn’t have three children (one which is ten months) . My sister has only been able to raise $30. She wasn’t sure how much to ask for so she asked for 10,000. I don’t even need a brand new car just one that’s safe and reliable. One that will last for longer than nine months. I have really bad luck when it comes to vehicles. It seems every time I’ve tried to do something better in life to benefit my kids it has just made my life more difficult I.e. student loans. It’s really discouraging when I see people asking for donation foe iPad airs and see they have been getting all kinds of donations and I need help to get a vehicle for my children and there’s nothing. Maybe some of you can share my campaign. I believe the link is gofundme/ambersvehiclefund. If that’s not it the campaign title is mother of three in need if vehicle. I would be more than happy to share your campaigns as well just leave the link or title and I will be more than happy to try and get your campaign shared.

    Thank you for reading my post. I have two sons, who both have special needs. I work full- time, I am looking at beginning my own Jewelry/Accessories online company. I want my kids to be more entitled to more time with their mother and have that constant one on one attention they need. If everyone, can chip in $5.00, that would help me out tremendously, thank you for your help and generosity.

    I became friends with this lady who worked at Supercuts next to my work (Walgreens)- she was genuinely the sweetest lady ever! But one day she had a dangerous seizure which caused her to be rushed to the hospital where they did a CAT scan and found a huge tumor in her brain. While dealing with this news, she also went blind (as a result of her diabetes). She had brain surgery to remove the tumor, which left her motor skills impaired and her ability to talk very limited. (She has trouble saying words, getting full sentences out). I couldn’t believe that in less than a year, this incredibly vivacious lady was struck down over and over and over. Yet, not once did she ever complain! Unfortunately, the tumor came back and tripled in size. The doctor says that can try to operate but that it just delaying the inevitable- she will die. When asked what she wanted to do her response was, “I just don’t want to be a burden”…that broke my heart! She always thinks of others before herself, even at a time when she should allowed to be selfish! They are so humble and wouldn’t ask for help, so I took it upon myself to start a gofundme campaign for her. It’s up to her how to spend the money, whether it be paying medical bills, or especially, doing something she’s always wanted to do before she died. I’m stuck right now because it seems the donations have stalled, and only $275 raised. It breaks my heart because she deserves better- before she dies.

    Life is hard, but we should be able to help out when we can. It should not matter if you already know personally the ones we help, do you feel that way when you see someone fall in front of you ? I always reach out a helping hand. I hope my karma will show up now that I need to share my daughters story. http://t.co/zqOHfUb7fl

    Its so heartbreaking how people with materialistic reasons get thousands of dollars donated but people with medical reasons struggle to raise a single dollar. I would have never made a Go Fund Me account if it wasnt for my mother really needing the surgery. Its all for my mother… Please help me help my mom http://www.gofundme.com/or5vs4

  • I can understand many not getting help, if it’s not as serious as some are… but pain is serious. I wish everyone the most success, if experiencing pain. Dee’s pain is real. http://www.gofundme.com/painrelieffordee It’s been very hard for her, and it is scary for her to pursue tedious surgery that could paralyze her permanently. heartfelt….

  • I am currently trying to raise money on gofundme with no success. I think there should be more ways to get stories out besides the way they have it. I have no family and thought i had friends but am not getting any help. I am asking anyone who is reading now if you could please help in anyway it would be greatly appreciated. Our story is at gofund.me/ohv1k0 and we need help. There has to be people out there that want to help a good cause and for people who actually need it. Please check out our story and help in anyway you can. Thank you for reading. Please Help!!

    I’ve found it hard to raise money, yet I see tons of pages that are asking for silly things like they want to travel the world or buy designer shoes and they have thousands in their account. Mine is listed here , I don’t have a huge social network and my facebook friends list is small. I have offered rewards to people who donate and have tried various places to post , I also have found a lot of other sites do not allow fundraisers to be posted.I spend my free time helping others but I noticed when I ask for a donation, even 5 bucks, friends and social network friends are all struggling to pay their bills, yet their next post online is “Look at this 350 dollar purse I bought” It makes me sad in a lot of ways. While I don’t expect people to donate, I will and have given my last 5 bucks to fundraisers and people in need, so it does my heart a little damage when I see people shy away or make negative comments about me asking for donations. As if I am a lazy person. I work 85 hours a week. People tend to judge before reading the story too.

    I think that GoFundMe is something that can grow, but asking for help can be discouraging especially during stressful situations. My husband is desperately fighting for his daughter’s rights at the moment with hopes that he can get her to a safer and nurturing environment where she can freely enjoy both parents, rather than be forcibly kept from her dad and in a dirty, neglected place at home with her mother. There are so many I have helped and I can say just keep it up everyone out there who has a good cause and never lose faith or drive. It can be an uphill battle, lord knows it, but all it takes is one good person or a handful to spread the word and help win the battle.

    Omg, it is sooooo sad that people with frivolous campaigns make THOUSANDS, and i cant raise more than $20 on these fund me sites…i have dedicated my own resources and services, which have been popular, but the funding sites arent working! Leads me to believe that people dont care about others anymore, its all only about entertainment….anyways, if you are so inclined, i am trying to raise money for a lady and her family needing desperate help…. https://fundanything.com/en/campaigns/the-lady-at-the-bus-stop?col=-54565
