Though I have had help locally, it is not enough. I look at my story it is honost to the point, but I don’t think it appeals to people. 

I am looking for any advice I can get.

Thank you for your consideration.

Hi @railfan51_Deborah Gardner your story is to the point, but I wonder if it might make sense to flesh it out a bit more and explain more precisely what you need the $1000 for. For instance, sometimes people will share pictures of different bills and really go line-by-line explaining how the funds will be used and how much of an impact it will make on your life. 

Tagging in @Jules in case she has more advice!

@railfan51_Deborah Gardner Hello there! I agree with Cris about adding some more information about what you need covered, and when you need it covered by. 

If possible, I might go into detail about why you are starting a GoFundMe. For example, you might want to say something about wanting to start a GoFundMe because you’re backed up on your bills and the funds would help you close the gap with your finances. Without the funds, you might never catch up (or something like that).
