Raising funds yourself on social media
Ordinary people are raising money on social media like Facebook and Instagram every day. It may be a way to help you and your pet.
You’ve probably heard about the big high profile social media fundraisers that raise big money. But did you know that ordinary people use social media to raise money for paying bills? In fact, 1 in 3 GoFundMe fundraisers are from everyday people needing help with medical bills. And that’s not just medical bills for people, but their pets too!
There are dozens of websites that make it super easy to create a fundraising campaign. Once you create the campaign you advertise it on your social media and ask your friends to share it on theirs.
It costs nothing to create a campaign on these websites; typically they take a percentage of the funds raised as their fee. If you raise $0 you pay $0. But chances are you’ll raise something. Might be worth a shot, right?
