Have you heard of Crowdfunding? I recently learned about it in the January issue of All You magazine. It is a newer concept where several people share the financial burden of a family member, friend or even a complete stranger by networking and pooling their money together, via the internet. These efforts can also help organizations raise money for their causes. Campaigns include raising money for adoption and fertility treatments, disaster relief, startup companies, memorial funds, supporting budding artists, defraying the cost of medical expenses, and educational funds set up for children who have lost a parent at a young age.
There are several websites set up to create a campaign depending on your needs.
GiveFoward helps others with health-related and medical expenses.
YouCaring is a totally free site dedicated to personal causes.
AdoptTogether helps families raise money for adoption fees.
MoolaHoop helps women raise money to start their own businesses.
FundAnything is also open to pretty much anything and is even supported by Donald Trump, who has personally donated to causes that have touched him.
This is an excellent opportunity for someone to get the help they need that otherwise would be impossible.
I would like to invite you to read the story about my mother in law, Deb, who currently lives in Florida but would like to relocate to Ohio where she is originally from. She is struggling to come up with the money that is required to make such a long distance move. Her children have a campgain set up for her on YouCaring to raise money to help offset the financial burden she is faced with. Any and all donations are greatly appreciated.
