Our Kenneth Webster nursing care fund was the greatest help to us at such low point after my husband's paralysis became worse from his brain cancer. It was bad enough loosing his income but the cost of nursing home was beyond belief. Youcaring.com was far better than any other crowdfunding platform because they don't keep nearly as much as their competitor GoFundMe (which keeps 5%) keep that in mind.
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!
When a friend is really in need and you are thousands of miles away you will look for any way to help. Regular giving sites wouldn't let you run a campaign unless you were in the same country and time was a precious commodity we didn't have. Thanks to YouCaring lives were changed and a family in desperate need was taken care of in an emergency. Thank you for making this possible.
YouCaring has been such an incremental part in sharing our testimony and raising funds for surgery. So thankful for this platform and all that have donated.
Technology is amazing! YouCaring has given us an opportunity to easily share our story with our friends and family, and they can share it with others with just one click. We've received donations from people we haven't even met, just because of a friend or family connection. It's not only helpful to receive the donations, but also to see how wide our web of support truly is. And YouCaring makes the logistics of sending a thank you email, tracking donations, and transferring funds so easy.
YourCaring has been an incredible tool in helping us raise funds to send my daughter to Interlochen Arts Academy. We've used other crowdsourcing sites in the past but this time we used YouCaring because they don't charge extra fees on top of credit card processing like other sites do. Every penny matters when you're raising funds to help someone shoot for their dreams.
When I learned that my brother was in need of a double lung transplant to survive, I was in shock. I knew that his breathing was labored but until the doctor said, "You need to be on a transplant list," I didn't understand the seriousness of his condition.
That is when I immediately got to work thinking of every possible way that I could help him. I realized that while getting a transplant itself was fear producing or of equal importance was how would he, his wife, and children survive during his recovery. With a high health insurance deductible and an inability to work during recovery their finances would be stretched thin. Honestly I could see potential bankruptcy. So I researched various fund raising websites and found YouCaring. It is an easy to use site with good interface with Facebook and other social media. I posted my appeal on my Facebook site and my family reposted. We were able to raise thousands of dollars. This helped my brother to focus on his health and not worry himself to death about finances. YouCaring was a godsend for us and ultimately for him.
It is such an honour to raise funds for your friend when you know 100% of the money is going to them. We have so much respect for YouCaring for creating a free platform for fundraising that is so professional and functional. Thank you for helping us to save baby Isla's life x
YouCaring was a big part of how my husband and I were able to bring our daughter home through adoption fundraising on their easy to use site and very effective page set up. We are forever thankful and grateful for YouCaring, it truly is a wonderful fundraiser site.
We used YouCaring to set up a fundraiser for our dear friends and their son who is battling brain cancer. The site has been absolutely crucial and so incredibly beneficial to the efforts to help them. Our experience with YouCaring has been wonderful. It was very quick and easy to set up, and really user friendly. We love that the funds go directly to the family. Obviously, you never hope that you will need to set up a page like this for someone you love, but if you do, YouCaring is absolutely the best out there. We are so grateful and appreciative that YouCaring has made this fundraiser possible.
