When 60,000+ homes in the Baton Rouge, Louisiana, area flooded, my son and his family had to leave their home, live in a trailer on their front lawn, and deal with having to rebuild and refurnish their entire home. It was suggested to me that our friends would like to be able to help. I found YouCaring to be an easy site to for our friends to use, and for my son to accept the help of his friends.
YouCaring has opened up a platform for me to come out of my comfort zone and actually ask for help. I am not one to do that but I now realize that this is how people help and find comfort in being helpful in a situation where they otherwise cannot.
YouCaring was such an amazing help and resource during my family's time of need. It was very easy to use, navigate, and was helpful in submitting updates for those to check back in and see how we were improving and the results of their thoughtful donations. I especially liked the ability to go through and send virtual thank-you's to each individual that donated after all was said and done.
Thank you to YouCaring and their great team!
YouCaring has made it possible for me to keep moving through a very difficult time. It isn't easy to ask for help or to feel dependent upon others. But at times life includes situations where that dependence is necessary. After being diagnosed with multiple chronic conditions, and being without income for many months while waiting on disability benefits, I was forced to ask for that assistance. YouCaring made asking easy and efficient. I still haven't met my goal for the fundraiser, but half of the amount--almost $15,000--has already been raised. YouCaring is keeping me alive and helping me to go on with my daily tasks without the constant stress of scarcity and need. Being sick, and especially being chronically ill, is difficult. But knowing that there is a service available for me to obtain what I need helps immensely. Thank you, YouCaring, for creating a forum that has made my life easier. Thank you for assisting to keep me moving!
Thanks to YouCaring I have been receiving donations towards the purchase of a used vehicle to help my son and I get around because of our rare genetic disorder. Hoping to reach our goal soon. Thank you for making fundraising possible for us and very easy to get it out there!
I have been using YouCaring to raise funds for Ingrid's Haven for a couple of years now and I cannot rate it highly enough.
Twice a year we ask for donations - in Winter to help pay the huge electricity bills that come in and at Christmas/New Year when the Haven is in the peak of kitten season and desperately needing funds to cover the vet/food/litter costs.
The YouCaring site is very user friendly and our followers on Facebook have found it a really simple way to donate.
Thank you YouCaring for providing such an amazing platform for us to be able to make a difference for Ingrid and the Cats at the Haven.
The YouCaring experience permitted a very compassionate collection to be easily organized in a single forum and presented in a very kind, caring and considerate way. As the creator of the point of collection, the feature set of options provided great flexibility and were easy to maneuver. The site name is also more sensitive to those it may be shared with; unlike others with a more harsh approach like "Go Fund Me".
The YouCaring site features also permitted supporters to participate in their own personal way, with a personal message or a contribution which could be anonymous or not. Thank you for the very positive experience at a difficult time.
I needed to travel across the country for a very specialized surgery, which was out-of-network. Until treatments improve, the only way to get help in this situation is to crowdfund, especially when so many doctors and hospitals ask for the deductible upfront! I was blown away by how many family members, colleagues, and friends donated generously since day one. And that is the one secret I will share is that I know everyone who donated, none were completely random strangers. It was scary and humbling to ask, but now I know how many care. I'd hate to think where I would be if I couldn't have had this skilled surgery. Thanks to so many who care, and thanks to YouCaring for a completely easy and stress-free way to fundraise!
YouCaring has been amazing -- every detail has been carefully thought out by its compassionate and knowledgeable staff to make Medical Crowdfunding as easy as possible. This is so important for people going through medical and financial hardship and for those trying to help them. We've reached a third of our goal, and while it's important to keep going, this has already been game-changing for Jack. We're very grateful to YouCaring -- we can't recommend it highly enough to others who are in need of assistance.
When my friend unexpectedly lost her son I knew right away that I wanted to start a memorial fund for her and her family for the funeral costs. Upon comparing several other crowdfunding sites and finding out the amount of money the other sites charged, it really was a no-brainer. YouCaring lets the beneficiary keep more of the money raised than the others. That was an important factor when choosing. It was also very easy to set up and share with others. Within 48 hours our fund goal was met and had over 1.1k shares! We received donations from all over the world!
When I had questions for customer service they were very quick to respond and help me out. I definitely would recommend this company over the others! Thanks, YouCaring for your services. You've definitely made it easy to help my friend during this hard time.
