Exceeded our goal and expectations
“When Jason, a Deputy with the Santa Clara Sheriff’s Department and my brother-in-law, was diagnosed with leukemia, he needed the support of his amazing community. Thirty-three days running and over $31,000 was raised. We exceeded our goal and our expectations. This is assurance that he will not go through this harrowing experience only to be drowned in debt. Thanks to this platform, and your continued support in tangible ways, he won’t be!”
—Julie, Jason’s sister-in-law
Sara Wysuph raised $31,320 for Jason’s healthcare.
Shocked by the great results
“A fellow rescue volunteer who lives on the West Coast kept telling me to create a campaign for each dog, but we thought it would be too much, and take up too much time. We procrastinated for a long time….MONTHS!! When we finally did it, we were shocked with how great the results were! We were also surprised with how easy it was to do.”
—Amy, Partners for Pets
Partners for Pets raised $267,229 to rescue abandoned dogs.
We did it!
“When our friend Rome was diagnosed with a brain tumour, doctors believed nothing could be done. Until one believed there was hope—and a chance. Rachel and Rome always believed they could fight the tumour and win. But funds were low and the surgery was expensive. So we believed in people. WE ALL BELIEVED IN MIRACLES and together, we made one happen. In four days, we raised $65,000 to pay for Rome’s surgery. Every single person that shared the story and that donated—whether it was big or small—knew that they were part of it. Thank you so much for providing a platform where this was possible.”
—Lulu Wilkinson, Rome’s friend
Lulu Wilkinson raised $101,468 for Rome’s healthcare.
