I am hoping you find this useful.

While searching for some help with my never-ending hospital and medical bills from Triple-Negative Breast Cancer, I found this website that does help in a different way. I was a little leery about what I call cyber-begging but sometimes you just have to let go and have someone help you out. That is what GiveForward is about. They are what is called crowd-funding. A website, a cause or project and a place for the donations to be sent.

To take some of the costs away from their website admin they ask to receive 2% of your donations. That is the lowest percentage out there and I looked. They are linked with Facebook but you do NOT have to have them link you, security being the issue. I have a few friends and family members who did not want to give their money to a website due to the security problems so I added my address so any donations could be mailed to me personally.

MY question to you is.... How can I make this work better for me? I have pictures of before and after, updates and links to Facebook. If I am going to put myself out there and actually do the cyber-begging thing, I want it to work.

If you have any questions or can give me ideas or suggestions, please do.

Thanks so much..
