Gofundme - interesting crowd sourcing web site I heard about today



The local radio morning show host brought this very interesting web site to my attention during today's show.

GoFundMe.com is what's known as a "crowdsourcing" site, where folks like us can raise money for worthy causes or even for ourselves.


I haven't done a thorough study of GoFundMe, but I like the spirit of the site. It seems to be organized and designed as a way to help those who need help. That's why I founded GivingAwayFreeMoney.com. The only difference is that you can personally solicit donations on GoFundMe, while I'm the one who funds you on my site.

Give it a look. You may find it to be another helpful tool if you are in need or know someone in need. Or perhaps, like me, you may even find a way to donate to someone else's need or cause.

I actually started a campaign on gofundme.com before I found this site. It's great if you have a cause people wanna donate to, but I'm finding it very difficult to people to donate. If you'd like to help me out, you can share the link to my page on Facebook, Twitter, etc. www.gofundme.com/9nzcy8

I had a go fund me before my disability went thru to try to get my medications. I have so many. I raised enough for a months worth but I did not really understand enough of what I was doing. Anyhow, I appreciate the opportunity to email you and will pray for a blessing. I can assure u in some way I will pass it forward. That's my nature:) happy 4th! Be safe

I have a go fund me account also and received nothing since signed up yesterday. It will be upsetting for me come April I am sure but still got to keep positive I guess all my details are on my page please take the time to just have a look wish me luck people and I wish everyone on here luck too. The world is a big place so many people in this world so many with millions and don't give a thought about how much £100 or 1,000 could help someone

Good Morning
My name is Patricia from NYC. I am seeking help with retrieving my towed vehicle so that I may be able to continue to take and pick up my 3 small children from school. The cost to do so is $1450. Please if you could graciously help I would be most appreciative. I have fallen a bit short of funds from my paycheck this pay period.
Mother of 3
