Since most people I know don’t carry much cash or change with them anymore, a friend recommended "Hey why don't you try gofundme so they can just donate from credit/debit?" So here I am, broadcasting my message and sharing what this is about.
Some have had questions:
1. Why did you do this?
What I was taught as a child and grew up to know was to be humble and, as within the spirit of all things and Christmas, it is better to give than to receive. I want to make a change for those people who don't get noticed simply because they don't have a roof over their heads. As many might know the feeling, I know how it feels to feel unwanted and alone, so doing this it might help put a smile on someone’s face. What could be small to someone, could be huge to someone else.
2. Why should I donate to you and not a charity of something greater?
Well, I am an individual who will be actually spending the full donations to buy clothes and show WHAT IS happening with the money given. As with other places, you give money and don't see much of anything and don't know how much money they are using for themselves and not the actual cause.
3. What if you don’t make it to the goal you’re hoping for?
Something is better than nothing. I might not be able to change all homeless peoples lives, but to try. It changed some others lives at least in that moment too. Be positive :).
4. Won't the website be taking out money for profit?
Yes they will. Here is my plan. When the campaign ends around whatever time I find will be good, I'll try to even out the funds if we go over the amount. For instance, if we reach $700 dollars and it takes out about $100 or $80 etc.
5. Do you gain any profit from this, financially?
Nope :). I don't mind either. If I have a lot of friends who are good and helpful, why not use that popularity of some sort to spread good word and make the world a better place? Its only to inspire others and make others smile and happy. The world needs it.
