    I apologize if I put this in the wrong spot. I need some advice and/or suggestions about these fund raising sites like gofundme.

    I want to know how can I make one successful when, say your network of friends is small or you don't use social media. I mean, is there websites, forums, etc., that one can post the link on to get people to donate?

    I keep hearing about how these sites keep raising all this money and they never really say how they did it. I wanted to set one up, but have no clue as to go about it and make it successful.

    Your advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

    If you want charitable contributions, take inspiration from the likes of globalrichlist.com - they make it quite engaging, and worthy of sharing.

    Maybe I should of been clearer, I'm looking for exposure for a fundraiser that will get people to donate money. I tried twitter, commenting on stories and posting the link, and all I got was comments but no money. Sucks because it's a legitimate cause and I can't seem to get it off the ground.

    I don't understand what the purpose of that website supposed to do to get me to this goal.
