Hey yall. Ive created a gofundme account in order to get help with my up coming dental bills. I do have dental insurance thru my job, unfortunately, the co-pay cost is still fairly high due to the amount of work that is needed to be done. Ive posted the link on my social media sites but, so far i havent had any responses. Qhat else can i do to get the qord out?

Continue to share, text old friends or family members. See if anyone could help share vs. asking for donations. Maybe try community group forums for dental.

@Donnie Wells I would focus on those first couple of donations. Once you have those, you can more easily use social media to spread the word. It can take someone several times seeing a fundraiser before they get up to donate, so you’ll want to share to social media regularly in order for that method to be effective. 

 

Finally, I recommend that you flesh out your story just a bit with more details. Check out this post on what to include in your story to persuade your readers to give.

Thank you jules. I will defi ately workon addin more to it. :)

Have you contacted the "University" hospital in your area? They usually have student programs that charge based on your income or what you have.

I don't know if it's going to be effective or not but I have replied on Twitter to specific relevant tweets by the appropriate positions of power in government on their twitter feeds.. Seems tacky but hey I've got no choice I'm desperate!

I shared on social media & all my groups & pinned the post so I don’t have to keep posting.
