Bridget used GoFundMe.com as her only source of funding. We were so humbled and amazed by so many friends and family that wanted to help Bridget reached, and ultimately exceeded, her goal.
In order to for her to go funds had to be raised. Her social studies teacher set up a GoFundMe account. The GoFundMe was one account for three students. She raised just under $2000. She was given just over $800 because her family had given the most. Her dad and I paid the rest.
I told Jayelyn she could attend the camp if she raised at least half the money herself. I helped her put together a simple GoFundMe campaign and video to send to family members. We raised about $600.
My daughter raised half of her tuition by using a GoFundMe account for relatives that were out of town that wanted to help the cause.
My son went to Gofundme.com and wrote an essay explaining what the Lone Star Leadership Academy is and what all the kids would be doing this summer. He also explained the type of classes he is taking in school and what outside programs he attends.
She raised funds on GoFundMe.com. All donations were from family and close friends.
My daughter created a GoFundMe account with detailed information about the Lone Star Leadership Academy.
We created a GoFundMe account and asked for donations from local businesses, friends, and family. We collected enough to pay for camp expenses.
We created a GoFundMe account for my daughter's camp fundraiser. We also created a Facebook group page to post updates on fundraising, announcements from Lone Star Leadership Academy on her acceptance, and pictures of the fun time she's having at camp.
We made a video and created a GoFundMe account. Then, we mailed the link to her closest family in a handwritten note.
We set up a GoFundMe account in order to raise the funds for our daughter to be able to go. My husband and I knew that we did not want our daughter to miss out on this opportunity because we did not have the money. Our daughter makes it known to people that she meets that she is very eager and focused on her education and does not want anything to stop her.
We used a GoFundMe account and were very successful. My daughter was nervous at first that we may not be able to raise enough money, but after all the support from family and friends we were very overwhelmed!
We used GoFundMe and raised $600.
When Christopher first brought the letter home letting us know that he was nominated, we were a little concerned about raising the funds. As a one-income family, it is hard to think about paying for the camp. We thought about it and realized that his education and learning experiences were not something you could put a price on. We posted on Facebook that he was accepted and we wanted to send him. Within one week we had enough people rally together to donate items to have a garage sale. With everything that we were able to sell, we raised over half of what we needed. At that point, we realized that Christopher was going to get to go, no matter what it took. We created a YouCaring.com fund as well. It was amazing to see the look on his face when we told him we had enough for him to go!
My daughter started a GoFundMe account, mowed lawns to earn money towards the camp, and received family donations.
She set up a GoFundMe page and shared it almost everyday with friends and family. She was able to raise all the money she needed. We are very grateful to the people that donated and made this experience possible.
She raised one-third of her tuition by doing a carwash in our town. We also arranged a GoFundMe account for friends and family that aren't local.
We did a GoFundMe account and our church allowed us to set up a table for donations after service. We decorated a tri-fold poster with pictures, a letter about the program, and information about Elijah. He gave out mints and flyers with the same information.
We started a GoFundMe account for him to raise money to attend LSLA. We didn't raise all of the money, but next year we plan to start fundraising sooner and hope to raise even more!
We started a GoFundMe campaign and shared the link on Facebook and through email. People were very generous and ready to help a child accomplish their goals. I think that this particular opportunity to tour famous sites and develop leadership and teambuilding skills is something that most people see value in and want to help.
We used a Go Fund Me page. Family and friends donated the entire amount for camp within two weeks and were happy to do it. Often people say "let me know how I can help". I'm a single mom with two adopted daughters. This was a great example of how much people do want to help and how loved and supported we are.
We used the GoFundMe fundraiser web page. It was easy to setup and distribute the web link to family, friends, and loved ones. We raised $500.
She raised funds through the GoFundMe website. She actually reached her goal within a month. She emailed family and friends telling them about the academy and sent them the link.
We raised funds with Education In Action's reference of GoFundMe. We raised half of the tuition, and are sending thank you cards along with a group picture of her camp.
