When our newborn son was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of Histiocytosis my twelve week maternity leave stretched into six unpaid months to help navigate the process of his diagnosis and treatment. So many people wanted to help our family in some way and YouCaring made it easy. They offered an almost effortless way to raise money that went to covering medical expenses, other costs associated with hospitalizations, and just the general costs of living. YouCaring made it much easier to focus on what really mattered during such a difficult time. The money we raised continues to ease the financial burden of his disease and treatment.
Jacob is a 16-year-old water polo player with hopes of playing college and beyond. When we were told he needed surgery for scoliosis, we were devastated as this would end his dreams. Our hopes were renewed when we found a procedure that would save his spine, however, it is new - in a different state and not covered by insurance. Overwhelmed, we didn't know where to turn until we found YouCaring. This site is amazing and so helpful every step of the way. They are constantly sending helpful hints and suggestions to those of us who have never had to fundraise before.
Wow! I am amazed at the generosity and loving support extended by so many people who have responded to the YouCaring fundraiser I posted on my private Facebook page last Thursday evening. Within 72 hours of the first posting, half of the fundraising goal of $30,000 had been reached by the combined efforts of nearly 100 generous donors. Over 570 people have shared the post. My niece, who is the beneficiary of the fundraiser, is not only being blessed by the financial contributions to assist with costly cancer treatments, she is also blessed by the kind messages shared for her on the Facebook posts and the YouCaring website. She is well aware and filled with gratitude for the hundreds of people, known and unknown to her, who have rallied for her, prayed for her, and sent loving thoughts her way. What a beautiful thing!
YouCaring.com was the perfect fit for our crowdfunding. We have a dear friend that is battling his 3rd round of cancer. Unfortunately, recently there has been a lot of bad news. We wanted to do something that brought "Good" to him and his family world. So we decided to raise money for him to spend anyway to create something positive. Cash is the best because he can decide the best way to make a good memory that can bring a smile and maybe a brief break of not thinking about the situation.
YouCaring was great. The technical support is awesome. One of the donors, predictably, donated a generous amount they intended to make anonymous and didn't. We found an FAQ that walked through exactly how to switch a past donation to an anonymous amount.
It's the little things that make this effort successful and it seems like YouCaring has recognized the importance of both usability and positive user experience.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
YouCaring has given us one place to share our international adoption journey with so many people. The fundraiser is simple to manage, personalized for your needs and helps create momentum for your cause. Great resource!
I chose YouCaring initially because of their business practices and lower fee system. However, I have been so impressed with the ease of setting up and managing the fundraiser for Amy Crowley. It has literally reached her friends and family all over the world through a few social shares. Remarkable. So grateful to the whole YouCaring team for creating a platform that's not only easy to use, but that connects so many. Thank you!
We can't thank YouCaring enough for helping us fund our dream. Our dream and fundraising adventure wouldn't be the same without YouCaring's support. It's been a true humbling experience asking others to fund our dream family and YouCaring is helping that dream come to life with their free fundraising platform.
My best friends son was diagnosed with a rare variant of MDS- a blood cancer- and is facing life changing treatment. His odds are fair, and at 19, his family was completely caught off guard by the expense and major life changes facing him and his family. He will have to go to another city for treatment, be hospitalized for a month- live there for 2 months after treatment and then stay in isolation for up to a year after chemo and stem cell transplant.
Those of us who love this family felt completely helpless- and YouCaring gave us a platform to share Dominique's story and helped us meet our first goal and cover the $6500 deductible in the first 48 hours! We have been thrilled with the ease of using the site and sharing his story- and have been so grateful for the ability to manage the notifications, updates, and donations without any hassles.
Thank you for providing us a way to provide support to this wonderful young man and his family in a time of crisis.
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!
When my family was once again faced with surmounting medical costs for my sister's treatments, we felt hopeless.
Due to my sister's rare neurologic condition called RSD (reflex sympathetic dystrophy), the only place where she can receive her treatments is in Monterrey, Mexico and none of her medical bills are covered by insurance here.
A few months ago, she was told by her doctors, that in order to save her life, her right leg needed to be amputated.
Not knowing how my family was going to pay for these treatments, we started this YouCaring page. And so many amazing and generous people have supported Jessica and have enabled her to keep fighting once again.
To all the people that have donated, thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts. Thank you for going on this journey with us. We are eternally grateful for all of your unending support.
And to the YouCaring company, thank you for creating an interactive and easy to use platform that is allowing my family to raise the money that we need.
We have been so grateful for the success of our page and we hope to reach our goal so that my sister can continue to get the necessary treatments she needs. Thank you so much YouCaring!
