A close friend fallen on hard times

$600 goal

Campaign created 8 months ago
My dear friends, I'm reaching out because a close friend has fallen on hard times due to unexpected illness and has had to temporarily stop working for about 6 months minimum. She has had to down size to manage on a pension and has lost most of her household goods.

Whilst Dave and I have sourced the majority of her needs, she needs a fridge freezer and washing machine. We have put on hold these second hand second hand items to the value of $600 and we are reaching out to our friends to help raise this amount.

If you could assist by donating $10, I believe that between us we can quickly raise the target amount.

We have already moved our friend into her new flat but is without these two items, so as you can imagine it is a challenge for her to manage without a fridge.

You all know me, in that I would be there for each and everyone of you should you be as unlucky.

Thank you so much in advance for making a difference to such an incredible and giving person. I'm sure you understand that I need to keep her identity private. She is unaware I am doing this as she has so much pride as we all would too if in a similar position (God forbid).

As an aside, having never done this before, I was so surprised to see the charges that 'Go fund me' have:

'When you create your GoFundMe account and indicate that you reside in Australia, you will be asked to create an account with our payment processor, Stripe.

Stripe's Australian fees are 1.75 percent + 30¢ per donation for domestic cards and 2.9 percent + 30¢ per donation for international cards and American Express. This is in addition to GoFundMe's 5% fee per donation'

With this in mind maybe $12 would be a more practical amount.

Love you all
