Are Go Fund Me campaigns ever successful for normal people without hundreds of friends?


Or is it really just for churches, people wanting to make potato salad, and viral people?

    This is my problem to. It seems people skip right over the real stories and instead donate to "fluff" a lot of time. I also don't have any idea what ways to market it Might not be for me. Glad you got on your feet BTW.

    So spam it? Just seems that would make people not want to help, but I guess it's what I'll have to do.

    I think people are willing to help those who are severely ill, and that is amazing. The hub community is awesome.

    See I think this is what irks me a bit. People would rather donate to a charity over a regular person down on their luck, but they feel it is ok to donate to help a website upgrade. Am I the only one who thinks that's backwards?

    That was of course a worthy cause. So lots of photos, and lots of updates. It seems it would need to be shared far and wide. Glad you had some success.
