  • (OC) A redditor who I will name in the comments has built me a new finger after insurance turned me down for one. They took an existing design and customized it with my feedback and made me whole again. It should be known that Limb Labs wanted 15 to 20 thousand dollars for one.
    Making a page came to mind. - Source: Reddit / 9 days ago
  • Always glad to see one of these
    John Devlin can't be making much on YouTube with Mormon Stories. It would probably take a concerted campaign to bring billboards to other areas. Perhaps separate gofundme campaigns for SLC, Provo, etc. Just a thought. - Source: Reddit / 16 days ago
  • Party with no presents question
    A friend of mine once hosted a birthday party for their 3 year old and specifically stated no presents. Instead, they set up an "entertainment fund" on for him that people could send money to. This paid for things like camps, trips to the zoo, and other various activities. Pretty great idea. Kids value experiences over things majority of the time. - Source: Reddit / 23 days ago

  • Found this in r/memes and thought it belonged here.
    I mean, the government cant just pay for their bills or give them another job it is way too bad for the economy.(like people are complaining about nasa), and if ur saying the country is void of compassion why don't you go to and actually fund these people atleast you wont be void of compassion. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Florida firefighter, Red, didn’t trust the vaccine and ended up in the ICU for 7 months. He pulled through, but will need medical assistance the rest of his life. Cue the gofundme for his wife and two young kids.
    So curious what long term recovery involves. I googled him on the website. His wife says, "He is currently bedridden, and his rehabilitation will take at least another year, and at the same time we find ourselves having to fight for even just the most basic compensation and benefits to which he’s entitled.". - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Got an idea for a Georgist project? Need funding? Post in the comments!
    The Young Georgists of America hit a $2k target in 12 hours using; that is just one project, and they probably would have received more donations if they had set a higher target. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Fundraising platform in Tanzania?
    I initially suggested, but this doesn't support Tanzania. So I found M-Changa, but this seems to aimed at the Kenyan market, so this also won't work. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Birthday Surprise
    Her birthday's approaching, and I thought that as a gift, I could buy her a bed. I myself don't earn any money, but thought about starting a fundraiser on . I think it would mean the world to her. Now, here's my question: I'm still a minor, and I don't know how to approach this situation. Is it even legal to start a gofundme as a minor? - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago

  • Assalamu Alaikum. We should remind ourselves of the rights our neighbors have over us, and how much care Allah has taught us to have for the well being of our neighbors. For those with the means to do so, some websites like GoFundMe have a 'near you' section to help you find your neighbors in need.
    But in the meantime (while you are establishing that bond), try to use technology to help you fulfill that obligation. For example has a feature where they show you gofundme campaigns near you (control f "Find a GoFundMe near you" on their website home page). Often times the campaigns listed here are very, very close to my home, so this feature is quite accurate. Donate what you can (donations can be... - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
    This is a scam I am guessing. Why? The actual go fund me link is NOT "" For example.. This is a real fundraiser link:, which looks a lot different than the link OP posted. I almost fell for this too, so I just want anybody to remember to not click on any suspicious links:). - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
