Success Stories

Over £15 billion raised for inspiring campaigns by incredible people.

Naevia the husky

Naevia the husky was attacked on Redcar beach one Sunday by two other large dogs. She was so badly injured that she ended up in intensive care – and her devastated owner Marie was quoted £20,000 to save her. Marie set up this GoFundMe to help and managed to raise more than £42,000 – saving beloved Naevia and also paying forward another nine dog’s vets bills.

Provide baby formula to desperate UK parents

Fundraiser Simon Harris spotted a harrowing report on Sky News documenting how many families were struggling to provide their babies with formula during the cost of living crisis. In some situations, they were turning to desperate measures such as skipping meals themselves. Simon sprang into action to help and started this fundraiser to get formula to those who need it – and to date has raised more than £60,000. 

Help Nik to Pay It Forward

Nik ‘juggled everything life threw at her’. She was a single mum to two boys, studying full time. And now she’s won a place on an Oxford University Executive MBA, which will help her towards her long term goal – to set up a micro-finance and business training mechanism for female startups in the developing world. Nik managed to get scholarships for the course, but these are only accessible once she puts a deposit down to secure her place – which costs £8,000. So her friend started this GoFundMe to help.

Mad Max Challenge For Maxi’s Million Meals

Max wants to provide a million meals for those facing food insecurity across the UK. He’s embarking on a series of fitness challenges at food banks across the country to raise money and awareness of his cause. Max has already provided more than a thousand meals.

Children With Voices and Community Food Hub – APPEAL

Charity Children With Voices has helped people in Hackney for over a decade. In response to the pandemic in 2020, they launched a Community Food Hub feeding 600 people every week. They started a GoFundMe to secure a permanent home in Hackney – and raised more than £200,000 to continue their vital service.

Cookies 4 Mila

Two years ago, Dana met Mila in speech therapy. They became close friends and worked hard to beat their stutters. Dana’s got better, but Mila’s didn’t. It got worse. Something was wrong. So Dana decided to take action and raised over £45k for her friend’s treatment.
