My first GoFundme!
This is the advice I was given for my first campaign
"To raise the most money for a campaign, make sure you:
Describe who will benefit
Detail what the funds will be used for
Explain how soon you need the funds
Talk about what the support will mean to you
Share how grateful you will be for help"
Financially of course I will be the one to benifit, there are no two ways around this. I require this money in order to move to my new location. This will pay for the moving fees, my deposit, and my first months rent. My roomate let me know without warning that he was going to be leaving in January after I got back from Pax Unplugged. I really wanted to stay where I am but finding a new place was easier than trying to get someone to live with me here within three weeks.
A few months ago we helped a friend of mine get out of an abusive living situation. She inspired me to raise money for http://safehousenv.org/ an amazing organization to donate to. She heard about my moving situation and introduced me to a mutal friend of hers who was looking for a room mate. We met up and hit it off and I am thankfully set to move in January 1st. This goes to show you that love keeps giving and a rising tide lifts all boats. I am happy she is in a safer place and has helped me find a place to call my own again as well.
If you have any questions my direct messages are always open. Thank you for taking the time to read this message. There are just simply not enough words to say thank you. I have moved over 3 teams in the past 3 years. Those of you that know me well know how stressfull this has been for me. I have been told that the place I will be moving to is a long term place and I can stay as long as I like. I am very much looking forward to having a permanent home!
