@Nicole.H, I do not do social media either but there are still ways you can get the word out.  You can try copying and pasting the link into a text message and sending it to people in your contacts.  Similarly you can do this with email.  You didn’t link your fundraiser so i dont know the topic or situation but perhaps you can ask a friend or family member that might have social media to help.  You can invite them to be part of your fundraising team.  I’m very new to this too but I found success on the NextDoor app.  Do you have it?  If not you might consider downloading it.  Where it differs from social media is that you’ll have a built in following of neighbors.  You won’t need to get followers or friends as everyone in your neighborhood will see your post.  Share the link and copy your message there and I think you’ll find some luck.  Also I’ve noticed that GofundMe staff have a lot of good tips about writing and formatting your fundraiser’s and messaging.  If you share your link in this discussion maybe @Jules or @Olivia can give you some good advice.
