I agree with trying to get funds to take care of your family. It's not stealing so what is the big deal.

I am confused. There is a go fund me page for people helping Edward Snowden?

If you really need something there is no harm in asking someone for help. What better way that the Internet to ask millions of people for money.

Me and my friends were thinking about doing one of these for our vacation. We figured if you are upfront with people and they still give the funds there is nothing to feel guilty about.

TechCrunch has a post today about a new online group fundraising website, called GoFundMe, that might be a great option for political campaign candidates looking to take donations on their site and track contributions with an interesting social media layout.

I’ve been getting emailed a lot about this question and it frequently popped up during the charity and personal fundraising webinar that we conducted a few weeks back. How do you go about promoting your GoFundMe page and are there any best practices for advertising it to strangers?

I think through Facebook. If you know about the algorithms to make something go viral you can have great success. Get your organisation or friends to share something all at the same time making it trend exponentially. GoFundMe campaigns can be hard work for this reason of trying to get more people to see your cause.

Once the picture hit social media, it quickly went viral. Good Samaritans created a GoFundMe campaign with a goal of raising $3,000 so Mr. Sanchez could take time off. But it’s done so much more.

If you cannot ask your friends for the money then Gofundme seems legit to me. I have even given money to a few accounts over the years.

A man who spotted Sanchez last week decided to help the"Paleta Man," creating a GoFundMe campaign. That money will be used to help Sanchez and his wife relax and take care of themselves.

For the most part I do not think these are very successful. Normally if you are broke your inner circle and people around you are broke also.
