Going through something difficult and making it out the other side is not something to downplay. With every experience, you have an opportunity to build character, learn more about the world, and potentially teach others through the wisdom of your experience. When was the last time you went through something hard? What did you learn about yourself during the experience?
Just wanted to say from my experience so far, it looks like you will only get donations if you have a huge Social Media following. I don’t. And because I don’t have a huge following, I might end up homeless and on the streets, no food, gas, or a place to live, all because I had a medical emergency and had to take a LOA from work. I also realized something else I never knew… there really isn’t a lot of resources for people in this predicament which must be somewhat common. You can’t predict health issues. If I had a lot of other choices to get the funds I would have never had a Go Fund Me! I’m really sad and upset that I realize NO ONE HELPED ME when it was really needed. I’m they type of person who would help anyone. It’s a eye opener for me - #WOKE.
I am on here seeking for help, because my family has started so much drama, they've made it where I have applied at literally 10 jobs and have not be able to get one.My husband has done the same. They are running our name through the dirt and I just want to get away from thenYou guys are amazing people!!
I just became a part of the go fund me community due to an unforeseen pet medical condition and it was easy setting up my account. I truly hope I raise at least a little to help but I have high hopes specially after seeing other people succeed with there gofundme’s. Im in and hoping for the best alongside Go Fund Me.

But anyone can beat and win and live in happiness and sick free if you just have faith and believe!!!♡ yallThanks Ashley Ann
Let’s get honest - asking for help can be really hard. We’re embarrassed and sometimes afraid of feeling rejected if we don’t get the help we need. But the truth is, eventually, everyone needs help. So, why should I bother asking for help?Believe it or not, most people want to help. Humans find satisfaction in helping others and actually enjoy doing so– there’s lots of science behind this! Getting over that initial fear of asking is the hardest part. We’ve found that once people take that leap, others aren’t actually judging them nearly as much as they feared. After all, asking for help is an act of strength. Some ideas on how to ask for help: – Be sincere. The more heartfelt your ask is, the more others will relate and want to help. Make it a conversation, not a transaction. Share your story and the details that express why you’re asking for help.– Find your support team. Is your best friend your biggest cheerleader? Do you have certain family members you rely on? Create a team that
So I have a discussion for everyone. How do you cope and what do you say when people are mean when you are doing a fundraiser? I posted for a fundraiser for my son. He didn’t ask me too and he needs the help to get the dental care he needs before it causes more health issues however there is a certain person I know that is going to go off on me how he should just work for it. I get that. My son works very hard at his job and has been looking for a second job but with his social awkwardness and his underlying autism it is hard for anyone to look past his issues during the interview process to understand that he maybe be different but is smart and works very hard in anything does. It was able to pick up some more hours at his part time job since school is out but unfortunately he still would take a long time to save up to get his dental work done so I put up this fundraiser. But I know the harassment I am going to get for trying to help him out with this fundraiser.Does anyone hav
I can’t figure out how to get my fundraiser to be successful and each week that I’m not able to get to work from pregnancy complications, and the bills keep piling. I get more and more anxious. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong, is there something that I need to do to get it publicly published?
Is any GoFundMe too small or ridiculous to be asking for help next to all these horror stories you hear people going through? I don't want to come off frivolously.
This is my first time posting for any thing really and after seeing all of the tremendous pain and horrible things these families are going through go fund me shines a light on the fact that their are still good hearted people who are selfish and will help and do care. I almost feel bad that ours is nowhere as meaningful or gut wrenching. To be on her asking along side these people in such pain and need. My advice is to just still believe there is good in humanity. Somewhere!
Let me start by saying, I am raising money to help a dream of mine come true-publishing my first (of hopefully many) novels. I look through some of these fundraisers and my heart goes out to people. Losing everything in fires. Loss of loved ones, etc. I think, how the hell can I be asking for money when these people are going through all this. It is truly something I struggle with. What I hope is that, when I get my novel published, that it succeeds enough that I can use at least some of the money that I make to help people that are struggling in such a way. Not only at home but in the world. I really do have philanthropic goals. I think too many people are only out for themselves and I want to be the change that I demand in the world. This truly isn’t a plea, but me putting my thoughts down (I am a writer after all). Good luck to everyone who is going through struggles and those, like me, that are simply trying to make a dream come true. The world can be a better place if we all help
I’m am 36 and in my neighborhood a lot of dogs gets dropped off and left. I love animals I can’t seem to let any animal go hungry nor homeless. I doctor the animals if they need it. My neighbors even bring me there dogs if they get hurt or hit by a car really for anything, to see if I can help them or do they need to see a vet. I am trying to open an animal rescue home for abandon animals. If anyone can help me to open a home for them I really appreciate it. I promise you won’t be disappointed with the animals rescue home. Thank you very much
Maybe this wasn’t a good idea even though I do need to help this literally has hurt me into a charity case and that’s not what or who I am about it’s funny that it’s easy for me to help them to receive it just type in this makes me wanna cry but I’m guessing it would be irresponsible on my part if I didn’t do all that I could to help better my traumatic experience.
This is my first time that I ask someone to help me. Every time a do it by my self. To ask someone is hard because you don't know what to say ,what to right. I learn to be honest and i said to my self that you can try.Helping other is the way we help our self. Helping one person might not changed the world but it could change the world for one person.Thank you
