Hey @Kendra Francis In your shoes, I recommend fleshing out your story a lot more, as well as adding some photos of you on your campaign. I recommend looking at some of the fundraisers on our site that have raised a lot of money to compare and see what gaps you might want to fill in your description. Here’s a good example of a fundraise that goes into more detail about their situation. 

 

For tips on writing an effective story, I recommend reviewing this post. 

How can I get my community to help or anyone I am going through a tough time and no one seems to help me out not friends and family it’s getting very frustrating

Hey @Jamileth Alanis Can you copy and paste your share messaging here that you’ve been using to promote your fundraiser? Perhaps the community can make suggestions to help tweak it to make your “ask” as persuasive as possible. 

Yeah , im in the same boat. No donations, so i asked family and friends to at least post my story . Any other suggestions??

@Tara Campos What share messaging did you use to share your fundraiser? Perhaps we can take a look to see if there’s any tweaks that can increase its persuasiveness.
