I am a single mom needing any advice and help for my donation page. I am new to go fund me as well as asking for help. I’m not sure exactly what I should write but I did write a short story about my struggles and my kids. Needing help getting the word spread and if my story needs any changes.

@Mina Register  I’m so sorry to hear about the string of events!  

I took a look at your story and I love how you talked about your kids, and gave context to your situation leading up to your current position. Where I might make some adjustments is to separate your story into paragraphs. This will make it easier to read and will readers transition between parts of your story.


Next, I would focus on sharing your fundraiser with your close friends and family to seed your campaign with donations. You will want a couple of donations to help validate your page before sharing seriously on social media. When sharing to social media, try to post an engaging question so people will comment and engage with your post. This will help Facebook prioritize it.
