The Platform You Choose Matters
Crowdsupport platform for anyone going through a hardship to get funds, supplies and meals, as well as allowing loved ones to volunteer their time – for personal and charitable causes.
Below you’ll find a breakdown of some suggestions that you can get inspired by, use as an example or copy direct (what’s the saying, imitation is the most sincere form of flattery?) The beauty of crowdsupporting is that there’s no wrong way to help out. So what are you waiting for? Check out some examples below!
Last year alone there were almost 2 million new cancer cases diagnosed in the US alone and the numbers are only growing. Help the many families affected with medical bills, everyday living expenses, emotional support, supplies, rides, help around the house and gifts. Show your support by helping a loved one with their practical needs.
Children & Families
They say it takes a village, so why go it alone? Crowdsupport for children and families, such as the sudden needs if a friend, family member or person from your community has a premature birth, needs childcare, tutoring, costs of school or something as straightforward as toys for Christmas. Help is also a two-way street. Allow mothers and fathers to have some time to decompress or help with the parenting needs of their children that might be more demanding than their bandwidth ever anticipated and can allow (either time, financially, emotionally).
Example: Birthday wish for camp fire children
When you least expect it, a tornado, hurricane or fire can sweep through and devastate everything around it. Large-scale or small, there are many things out of our control and when they happen, those affected can use all the help they can get. Help them with getting a hotel for a few days, rides around town, help salvaging what they can, or funds for them to get through the next week for shelter, food, etc.
Example: Cousins in Cali Need Support
Help those in your community either directly or by giving aid to schools, civic and social organizations that improve the quality of lives of their members. Either way, the people who benefit are individuals who these communities are comprised of. Support them with supplies (basic necessities, toiletries, clothes drives), food drives, money for living expenses and transitions and/or rally others to give their time to lend a hand with tasks and errands.
Example: Help R.J. get back on his feet!
Religious Communities & Faith Groups
Faith groups often provide solace and comfort to their members on a continual basis. Crowdsupport to further self-exploration through a mission trip or birthright or help advance their efforts with supplies, volunteerism and amplify their efforts.
Example: Help Xavier Mission
Charities exist to help communities in need, often ongoing or larger-scale needs to those who desperately need them. They can always use support, whether it’s proactively or reactively. Help a nonprofit you care about and help them in whatever way speaks to you. Note: We recommend reaching out to the charity first to give them a head’s up and get their sign off on your page (often they’ll have a specific logo or language they want to use). Plus, it helps validate your page, your efforts and recognition for all the work you’ve put being a conduit for support for them.
Get support for anything medical related, such as out-of-pocket expenses, upcoming surgeries, unforeseen bills, changes needed around the house (wheelchair access, ADA compatible), supplies (walker, wayfinding aids, mobility assistance, etc.). Help family, friends or someone in your community facing a medical hardship.
