I’m trying to get the word out but in good etiquette. I am really not sue how to. I also feel bad about it. It’s very vulnerable to ask for money for myself. I’m nor sure how.

@Darcia Phillips it’s totally normal to be hesitant when it comes to asking for financial help. A lot of people creating a GoFundMe for the first time will feel that way, so you’re not alone. 

My advice is to speak from the heart, and to be honest with your request. If donors can sympathize with your cause and feel a personal connection to it, the likelihood of them donating or sharing may be higher! Also, when sharing your page, I’d suggest taking a look at our post on how to ask others to share your cause. Expressing gratitude and asking friends or family to share your fundraiser can help take the pressure off of you, and it can help you spread the word about your cause even further.
