Some people think raising money online is not possible. Others may possibly think it's a scam. Crowdfunding is completely legal. In fact, anyone can create an instant online crowdfunding campaign for reasons ranging from starting your own business and raising money to purchase supplies for the business, money for college, crowdfund to pay medical bills, help a friend or family member in need, and so on. Raising money online also allows anyone to receive funds from their friends, co-workers, and others from their favorite social networks, because your crowdfunding accounts encourages you to share your fundraising profile with them.
GoFundMe lets anyone create a profile in a matter of minutes. Simply enter your real first and last name, official e-mail address, zip code, and follow the simple directions once you've created your free account. With your GoFundMe.com account, you can raise money for any positive cause "as mentioned," set any dollar amount, and even set a date for when you hope to meet your financial mark. Even if you don't hit the mark by a certain date, you're still ok.
