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

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.

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.

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

Unknown said...

I will give u full detail of my pursuits and goals to accomplish when you send me your personal email address you are partnering with a woman of God Destined for Great Success. Sincerely,

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,

I've left a request, not sure I hold much hope of getting a reply I just don't seem to be the kind of person that every gets a break. I guess as much as I find it hard to trust this is genuine the site owner must also get people trying to scam for money and also has to find trust and honest people. I pray for everyone that has gone searching for help and I hope you get it, if not from here from somewhere and soon enough to make a difference x

Unknown said...

God, please proved to me that in this world really2 exist the type of kind people who want to help others without asking for something.. every time I pray, i wish to meet with someone like that. someone who want to help me out from my poor life. God, I promise if my wish will come true.. I swear & i promise to do the same thing when my life changing better than now. Oh God I am very confident i'll get help from U God.. please fulfill my wish to sent someone for helping & give me chance to build a new life by giving me financial support to starting a small business. I promise to working hard & smart to expand my business up to succeed. oh God i'm begging... makes my life become rich so I can help other people who need help like i am so in the future there are no more children who don't get what they need as my sons just bcause their mom don't have more extra money every month. I'm struggling in my life as a single mother of 2 kids. I am very sad every time my children asked for something but I cannot give it to them because I can't afford it. Oh my Lord please send someone who can help me.. & please give him more wealthy, healthy & give him the joy of life so he could continue helping more people who need help like me..

With hopes..

I don't know who to ask for help anymore! I am 77 yrs old and I don't know who to turn to! It just seems that each day that goes by for me just keeps getting worse. I have always been a very hard working person ever since I was a young girl I have always worked for what I needed. I never asked for anything! Now, with my husband of 54 years gone I am handicapped, can no longer work to help myself out, with my bills piling up and I just don't know what to do. It has always been me helping someone else out! Now when I need help, there is no one to help me! I have turned to various churches only to be turned down! That really hurts! I just got off the phone with another scam call saying that they wanted to help me and then when they found out that I have no money they just hung up on me! I am having such a hard time right now. Each mo. I get an electric bill from N.A.E.C. here in Arkansas for anywhere from $538-$713.38 in which I just got the $713.38 on this past friday, March 6th! I am handicapped, no longer able to work, and because I can no longer pay such high bills I am under a lot of pressure! These elect. bills are just for 1 mo. Of course because of such large elect bills and me living on 1 Soc. Sec. ck. plus 1 sm. retire ck. I can no longer keep my bills paid and it is making me a nervous wreck! I am bent over 1/2 way and I lose my balance real easy and fall down. I have called the elect. Co. at least 4 times now and it just seems like they don't care as long as I have been paying these bills! But...it is causing me to fall so far behind on my other bills that I will never get caught up! I can't stand it anymore! I have a kitchen sink that has been plugged mover 6 mos. with no money to get it fixed, I cannot use the dishwasher because of the plugged sink so I get on my power chair with the dirty dishes and take them to be washed by hand in the bathroom across from the kitchen. Well, now the bathroom sink has flooded and now I have to take them to the bathroom and wash dishes in that sink, dry them and then take what I can in my power chair back to the kitchen. There are so many things in and out of my home that have not been able to have fixed because I don't have the money! One of my neighbors who lives about 2 blks. from me mows my grass as I have 2 power mowers that don't work and he noticed that my grass was not getting mowed and that was unusual. I explained that both mowers were not working and I had no money to get them fixed. I have a Mother who just had her 99th birthday on March 6th and I take care of paying her bills for her as she is no longer able to. The pressure is just getting to be too much for me. I have always been able to handle things, but...I can no longer do it myself with the bills piling up! I have to get back to Calif to get my Mother out of Pacific Gardens Assisted Living as she is paying $6,300 ea. mo. just to live there and that does not cover the rest of her bills. I need HELP and I don't know where to turn! I also need help packing so I can move back to Calif. to help my Mother out but...I don't even have the money to move back! I can't stay here w/o my family and these big elect bills. No one can believe the big elect. bills I have been paying and some of them have bigger homes than I do!
