Hi @James Waples I’m so deeply sorry for your loss.

Before we dive in, I see you have two active fundraisers: https://www.gofundme.com/f/waples-family-emergency & https://www.gofundme.com/f/grieving-family-from-loss-of-father-to-cancer - can you tell me which one you’ll be editing and sharing with others?

I'm sorry I apologize about that I fixed it it is the one with the three photos

And thank you for the condolences we greatly appreciate it

@James Waples Thanks so much for sharing that. First, I’d recommend adding a bit more detail to your story. You can check out this post for more information on what to include:

Adding a few more personal photos of your father and family and some fond memories could also be a nice touch to help memorialize him. Doing so might also help potential donors feel a personal connection to your cause. What sharing methods have you tried so far? Here’s a few posts I recommend taking a look at to see some ideas on where and how to share your fundraiser as well:
