Has anyone else every sorely underestimated their fundraising goal & if so did you ask for more help; and how?
Hi everyone!So I rescued a puppy from the side of the road after I saw him hit by an amish buggy almost a month ago. I took him to our local pet emergency, he had no collar, no tags & turns out no chip. I'd left my name & # with them telling them if I cld help out in anyway pls call me. A few days later they called me asking if I wld want to adopt the puppy bc where I lived there was no place to go with a stray injured dog. They went on to say in not so many words, if I didn't take him there was a good chance hed be put down. My heart broke for this poor sweet creature, he has the nicest disposition of any dog I've ever encountered. He's not 7 mons old & just as sweet as ever. He is American bulldog/ pitbull mix & we (my 6yo son & I) have fallen in love with him dearly.Unexpectedly coming in to dog ownership esp one with medical problems & the bills that come along with that are not cheap. I had estimated I would need about a $1000 to care for his broken leg- w
Ashamed and embarrassed asking for help. I’ve never been able to remotely count on my family to be there. I tried this route as my last ditch effort, asking one person isn’t enough. Don’t even know where to start, my days are wasted by false information or by my anxiety. I didn’t think I could be more hurt by my family, but that no one person has reached out, nothing. Makes everything Im feeling that much harder. I don’t understand how or why.
I'm new and learning how to work this app I find a lot of people stories comforting knowing I'm not alone I've been through more than I can handle and we are lucky we're alive I'm grateful our oldest is alive and made it after a hit a run accident that left me injured for life and learning how to walk again and having emotional breakdown because it's hard to not be able to walk to the kitchen to make a bottle but do it to be stronger they wanted me to be in a nursing home because I couldn't stand it's amazing what God can do heal my body to teach me how to walk again I thought I couldn't and I can I have my focus my two babys and exited to know what gender were having soon it's hard seeing my husband work every day even on his off days he still calls and goes in just to get everything we need to start over it's sad that some people are clod hearted and do horrible things to innocent angels that God gave us it's hard starting over because everything will be new and not what we picked ou
Should i take my page down knowing others might think i choose to spend my money on my dog & its my fault I'm broke? I am unable to work but spent what I had on him(he is my kid, I had too) but winter is coming and we live in a cargo trailer.. I'm so ashamed in asking for help.
Hello everyone. I was an good international French Chef with a good salary + benefits. I have started my GoFundMe 11 months ago because in between 2014-2022 I suffered a stroke, 2 heart attacks and a triple bypass I am know part of the thousands Americans on 140% and 144% of Federal Poverty Level and now have an official SSD that sais it. No food stamps because of bureaucracy. I want to says to those who feel embarrassed to ask for help get over it and keep finding ways to reach out to people in anyways possible. I have been ignored by most my family for pitching in for help, friend who know ignore me, but it doesn't matter keep reaching out do it for yourself you deserve being helped. Be umble, kind, honest in your request, DO NOT APOLOGIZE, follow up with donors, show than updates and respect, and be patient. I pray a lot, I thank God every day to be alive don't be angry with those who shut the door, because a shut door is an opportunity for another one to open.
Going through a new experience that I could never imagine. Finding out I have a brain tuber Its a very high chance I can be getting ready for my funeral leaving for children behind. I really don’t have the support of my family always was an independent person? Now that I’m up to the neck in bills very close to losing my home. Planning out funeral arrangements. I can’t afford surgery to give me a fighting chance. I have three beautiful girls and one little boy. If I had a second chance of life I will have a chance to see my children grow up as you like adults and one day be a grandmother. I would love to see my children grow in to beautiful young man and woman. The feeling of losing my home and rent is going up. All of this is triggering my tumor I pray for a big break it’s a spread the word to other people to have faith
Hey Everyone!! I’m Angela!! I’m in a rough spot being evicted and having no car. Please read my story on my fundraiser. I’m wondering if anyone else can relate to eviction or not having transportation?? I was in a serious accident on Tuesday and in a pretty bad spot mentally. However, I truly believe that God works ALL THINGS for good for those who love him!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️ Nice to meet you!!!
Some people believe that the Lord won’t put us through anything that we can’t handle, but I beg to differ he allows us to go through situations that we can’t handle on our own so that we will ask him for help and believe that he will do the work
Father God I’m not only pray for myself and my children but I pray for every single person that has had to create a go fund me account I pray for everyone that currently has one that has had one in the past or that may need to create one in the future I pray that you will put it on peoples hearts to help out even if it’s one dollar we thank you in advance father and we believe you we trust in you and we truly mean that and will show it by not stressing or worrying we completely turn it over to you father God and we thank you in advance in Jesus name we pray amen
My kids mother destroyed my house, bleached all my cloths, took all my money out the bank, and maxed out all my credit card. She’s not letting me see my kids. I’m not gone let it stop me or keep me in a dark place. Just be patient and everything will fall into place!!!!
So far this is a pretty good way of getting donations in the time of need. There are plenty of great people out the willing to help thousands of families. Me on the other hand it’s kind of hard spreading the word because I have no social media and not much family or friends to help get the word out for me but I always tell myself to never give up things will be better. May god bless you all with more blessings!
Im intending on correcting our current platform we use in business, we have land lords whom discriminate against tenants.rental business discriminate against color, weight and even sexual orientation. We intend to level the playing field for everyone. what do you guys think ?
How do I look at my thank you notes? I sent some individually written and some to a whole group. l would like to review them but cannot find a way to do so. I wish I had taken a screenshot of each but was focused on writing my thoughts and sending them promptly. Hopefully, they are not gone forever…This really seems like a simple feature that GoFundMe already has thought of so I’m hoping someone can help me find them. Thank you!
If I have stated before I have done all that has been suggested by gofundme, google, I even opened up new social media accounts to be able to share. I have reached out to friends family everyone is sharing. And to be quite honest with you they've been doing it for a while and they're so tired of it. I cannot ask my friends and family to keep sharing my gofundme. It has been a week since they have been working very very hard to help me. I'm at the end of my rope I mentally and physically exhausted working in this campaign. I have even filled out numerous charity applications. It also crossed my mind to just see if bulldog rescue would take him so they can get his surgery. But I can't do that to my family. So I was able to get let's say like a mafia loan that has to be paid back in a month and I'm already one week in and no funds. At what point do you tap out?
