Life saver for Baby Fay’s heart surgery
If it wasn’t for GoFund me , I’m not sure what our family would be going thru right now. Medical Bills were just piling up in spite of medical insurance we were all at a loss of options. Feeling hopeless. It’s hard enough seeing my baby granddaughter just deteriorating in front of our eyes and her parents struggling. All doors quickly closing until a friend said I should do a GoFundMe account for them. I remember thinking, I don’t know anything about that or how to even go about it. She offered to help and said it was not hard to set up. I then started looking into it and it was a God send. Since that day the skies opened up now the family can focus on getting the help they need. We’re still a long way from the goal but working our way through it. It helps emotionally to have some sort of lifeline Within this difficult situation. Setting it up wasn’t hard and you are guided with step by step instructions. Thank you GoFundMe.
It’s never easy to ask for help, thank God for GoFundMe
Due to the pandemic, I lost my job in April 2020. At 61 years old, I’m struggling to find a similar job, since I was the major breadwinner for our family. I took up bike riding to keep in shape. When my 32 year old daughter, Heather, asked to go with me, it broke my heart that I couldn’t grant that request. You see, Heather has Down Syndrome and struggled with riding independently. I started to research tagalong bikes, but when we tried one out, Heather wasn’t able to balance. Next I found a Special Needs Bike Trailer that accommodates an adult. But it was close to a thousand dollars. I looked for funding, and not finding any, someone suggested GoFundMe. It took me over a week to finally set it up, because I’m not used to asking for help. I am brought to tears with every donation. Thank you Go Fund Me and all donors for making a difference in people’s lives.
Would not use again
I lost my Mother unexpectedly and I set up a GoFundMe account to cover the expenses. I received a confirmation email stating that my information was correct and deposits would be made only for the day of deposit to happen to receive another email stating the the withdrawal is unsuccessful. I emailed Customer Service and was told that it was only the first withdrawal was unsuccessful but the other withdrawals are fine. I received another email stating that the second withdrawal was unsuccessful as well. I also received another email stating that I would receive another withdrawal amount that totals the amount of the first 2 unsuccessful withdrawals. Meanwhile, the funeral home is on my back about money that I have to wait 2 to 5 business days to receive only to receive an email the day before the deposit stating that the withdrawal is unsuccessful. This has been a terrible experience. GoFundMe charges fees to the donor and to the receiver. However, I’m sure that they have collected their fees while I continue to wait the standard “2-5 business days “ that gets reset every 2-5 business days when it’s time to receive the money
