In an effort to help those seeking money for medical/health campaigns, crowdfunding platform Indiegogo shared some tips on how these type projects can ultimately receive the funds they need.
“Crowdfunding proved an effective aid for the Villanova family, as well as thousands of others who have turned to the Internet to raise money for medical expenses.
“Given the scope of this challenge, this is likely just the beginning and crowdfunding is uniquely positioned to help hundreds-of-thousands of additional patients and their families. In fact, since 2012, Indiegogo has experienced consistent demand and triple-digit growth in the personal cause category leading to a site that is focused solely on life events. There are no signs of this trend slowing down.
“On the individual level, we are providing an easy way for people to raise money and rally supporters. On a system-wide level, people struggling with medical bills don’t have to wait for legislative health care reform or dramatic changes in health care costs to access the help they need.
“Indiegogo Life offers a free and easy way for patients and their families to raise money for medical expenses on the Internet. Our mission is to empower every person who is directly or indirectly impacted by medical expenses to raise funds online. So, we’ve made medical fundraising as easy as the ABCs.”
