Any suggestions on how to raise donations? I can’t disclose this to anyone. I’m in a domestic violence relationship with a police officer. He has made me financially dependent on him. I can’t turn to anyone. I’m trapped. He has taken all my savings and inheritance. I can’t afford to move out or survive on what I earn now but with this money I could get away, be safe, and have enough time to save money to support myself. There is no ambivalence or hesitation on my part. I want to go. I have no retirement and was dependent on him to support me but I don’t care anymore. I just have to leave. Please help!! I have no family. We know everybody in the surrounding departments and courts. I have no one to turn to. Thank you for your help, consideration, and time.
I recently recieved a really awful comment on a social media platform. I was told to stop "begging" others for money to soulsearch. They then said nobody cared about my dead cat or my heath. It was really awful to read that. I dont think im begging. I understand not everyone is gonna approve but the way they went about disapproving was just.....very discouraging. How do you deal with a message like that and still share your profile?
https://gofund.me/503fe1f1I've been seeing a lot of people like me. They need help but have nobody! I want this post to be away for anybody who is in my position to comment or like that way this post will be one more way for us to find help.

good afternoon to all. and blessings, my name is Allison and I am a mother of a young boy who received a liver transplant in march of 2021. it took me 10 years to ask for help, worried about what others thought or would say. For those who feel this way I can say I understand completely. people can be cruel and not understand the reason or reasons why. But I have learned to put my feelings aside and think about my son and his happiness. nobody is really going to understand unless they are experiencing what us families are going through. I must say that I am thankful to those who are kind and loving towards human beings in general. keep your heads up, stand strong and believe that there is kindness and love in this world still… God bless to all and good day...
My daughter and her husband's familys house caught on fire and she lost all of her belongings on March 7th. There was insurance on the home so it's being taken care of but...my daughters stuff isn't. So due to that reason...I made this gofundme account. Well, my daughter's mother in law noticed donations were being made and she thought since it was her home that burnt down, all the money needs to go to her...even though the insurance company has already given her numbers and she's getting a new house built and a check for what she lost. She says she is going to give my daughter money from the insurance but I dont think she will. She hasn't done anything she said she was going to do so far so why should I believe that? Does anyone have an opinion on where they think the donations should go from the gofundme account that I set up for my daughter? Oh and one more thing...her mother in law also made a comment on my account telling people if they don't feel comfortable donating to gofundme,
I’ve gone through and looked a lot at different peoples fund raisers. Some are pretty funny and have made a lot of money while some of the saddest ones make nothing. Mine is a combination of wanting to help people and personal struggle to regain life after loss. I’m trying to figure out what triggers a positive response in people in order to raise the funds I need to make my project happen? In a world of sad stories right now is it the funny and feel good fundraisers that walk away victorious or luck of the drawl?
I'm entering a controversial and quite political fundraiser supporting children and parental rights to try to get money for advertisement to let people know the truth and facts and to try to hinder big corporate involvement. Has anyone done this type before here and if so what was your experience and what kind of backlash and success or failure did you have, thanks!!
I am a good writer and I improve by the word. Typing actually slows my thoughts thus limiting my reach and creativity. I would like to network with other fund raisers, so that we may become points of light in during the darkest hours. I think outside the box and I know it. I am different in the way that Tesla was different, in fact sometimes I wonder if I am on the wrong planet? I appreciate y’all reading this and please let me know how to improve. Thank you in advance.

My biggest fear was asking for help for myself. I know there are so many other people who need help and support. That doesn’t diminish your need for help either. I also know people support others who are real, and have real problem they can help solve.When I posted my picture on my GoFundMe page, it was one of the hardest things for me to do until I realized help will not come unless I asked.I honestly don’t know if I will reach my goal, I do know I have faith, and I believe.So, I encourage everyone who may be too embarrassed to exercise courage to stand, don’t worry about being judged. The fact that you have courage to ask for help is a start.Good luck, and God bless you on your journey,Daphney.

I have been trying to move out of my apartment that has mold damage in the attic and making the conditions unlivable. It's been difficult for me to raise the $2,500 needed to move into a new place after I lost $2,200 in a scam. The woman was claiming to be the owner of the house but truly the house was for sale by the true owner, not her. I gave her $2,200 and then she changed her phone number. I'm not sure what to do to get put of my apt. asap.
I have been passing out clothing and food and an assortment of items to the homeless for some time now. I found a website to buy items in bulk. I am going to give GoFundMe a try to see if I can raise funds to help me to buy these prepacked backpacks in bulk to pass out. Of course I will still buy other items such as water, fruits, snacks and foods to also pack inside of these backpacks. 🤞🏽 This works!
Am I wrong for feeling stupid? It's like deep down I know I shouldn't even try sense not only has it made me look desperate but now is it making me look stupid....? I have posted everywhere even on fb help community pages and nothing I reach out to my 5 friends one sends me the $20 they owed me from like who knows how long ago xant reach out to family sense they don't talk to me. I have this posted almost everywhere (everywhere I can think of) and yet still I only made my $20 back. Is it me or like...I don't know...I just feel really stupid for thinking this could have worked
