As our economy becomes strained and more people are affected by financial pressures, the ability for people to pay for medication and treatment becomes a real hurdle to seeking treatment. As a result, people across GoFundMe have already started their COVID-19 fundraising efforts, and you can do your part to provide direct financial assistance to fundraisers, such as the examples included below.
- Conquering COVID-19
- Coronavirus, let’s strengthen intensive care
- OPTin – One Pantry at a Time
- Seattle Artist Relief Fund Amid COVID-19
- FGLI Wesleyan Student Donations
- Oakland A’s Food Bank Fundraiser
And these are just a few examples of what people are trying to do to help each other during this crisis. At GoFundMe, you can find many more great acts of kindness. To find more fundraisers like the ones above, check out our hub for COVID-19, How to Help Those Affected by COVID-19.
Donating directly to these fundraisers may provide the immediate financial support families and individuals need to rise above this crisis. While donating to charities or communal fundraisers is also a great option, fundraisers for individuals may be the best way to guarantee people get the money they need to get immediate relief.
