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 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.

I live on a fixed income from SSI, I receive $10 worth of food stamps. My bills are over $800 a month. I've taken out loans over$4000 which I can't pay with my check. I lost my truck in a accident. I need just $10,000 to pay off these loans and to get a used truck.

My YouCaring page is: Help Jonathan for his Birthday/Christmas for 2017! via @youcaring http://tinyurl.com/yanj9vob It's for anyone who'd like to give!(my Birthday is September 16th) YouCaring is another donation website. It's different from GoFundMe, but it might be good for you. I'd appreciate any donations between now and sometime in January 2018, or for as long as that page is up. Thanks!

Warmest Regards.

i have no idea if this is for real or not.... one can only hope that it is.
growing up i was told... if you give something to someone, give it wholeheartedly...
i have taken care of people, given when i had hardly anything, i was told it will come back to you.... well... it always made me feel good to share with someone in need but there were always the ones that forgot about the help when they are doing good again... i really hope that this is not someone playing with people who are in desperate circumstance

I don't know if you remember Percy Ross? But, many years ago he helped people in the same similar manner. Wow! He helped people who wrote him letters of request for money. No matter how big or small of reasons. All I can say is he just Loved people. An, he was truly a Blessing to many people. I tried to set up a go fund me account. But, I was so embarrassed about my being homeless, and in an controlling relationship that I took my account down and continue to pray, praise, meditate, read my Bible, and tell someone everyday how Great GOD IS. Then, I began to research and look for help and away to better myself and situation. I never thought in a thousand years that I would be in this perdictament in my life. I Know things got to change for the better and I believe destiny is real. But, for all that I have been struggling through for the past few years, it must be for my testimony. I can't say I know what you are going through unless I experienced it myself. So, to everyone who is struggling with life woo's or difficulties hold on a change is coming. ALWAYS REMEMBER TO PAY IT FORWARD, I WILL!!! I believe all things work together for the good of GOD, for all who Love GOD and serve GOD diligently. In JESUS NAME, AMEN

Darel Kilcrease said...

Hello Uvetta Watkins,
I trust you are well.
I was quite skeptical about receiving your story at first.
When God called me to give, I promised to give with out judging from a persons
story or even their place in the spirit realm, for me it suffices that they are created of
God.
Commune about the matter with the spirit of God, if you still feel led to share the story,
please share it. If you don't, feel free to send an account number to which I can make the EFT.
Preferably an account which has no balance.
Regards,
