Go Fund Me
« on: Oct 09, 2019, 01:35:09 PM »
have you noticed how many of these go fund me pages there are, anything from people needing help with funerals, or sending someone abroad for special treatment when they're ill, I've donated twice ,both times it was children who were ill, one was in my grandson's nursery class,but sadly the child died. recently there was an article about it which said that the person starting up these pages got some of the money, I'm sure people donating would think that all the money would be going where it was intended.

Not really, the website bandwidth & the web developers maintaining the website need paying for.
Make every day count. Every day is precious.

So true and in common with most charitable organisations - costs, wages, bonuses etc are taken out before anything reaches the good cause.
