I need help with getting a car to go to my doctor’s office cause I’m in kidney failure. I don’t have any friends or family to connect with (I’m all alone in this world), so what do you do in this case? Who do you get a hold of for donations or even to talk to about my situation?

I’m so sorry to hear about your situation @Diana Nelson. Unfortunately without a social network, it may be harder to raise the funds that you need, but I do have some ideas you can try. First, it's important to write an engaging and persuasive story, since you'll need to convince people who do not know you to help. You can learn more about how to write an effective story here:


Second, I recommend getting creative with how you promote your cause. That may mean going out of your way to form a relationship with someone so they can help promote your fundraiser to their own social media page.

I recommend checking out the following resources to help you get started.
1. How do you ask people to share your GoFundMe?
2. How to raise your first donations


Bless you at this time
