Before beginning this campaign, I had created a different fundraiser through a separate website. This first campaign has since been 'completed' before I was able to really send it out to friends and family. I was unable to change the timeline and the links were flagged as spam wherever they were posted, problems that I was unaware of until now. I've learned a lot from that first failed campaign and have transitioned to a new, more user friendly site (the one you're on right now)!
I also wanted to post a shout out and thank you to my Grandpa Steve and crazy roommate Katy for supporting me through my old platform! You guys rock!
