UBC Student Raising Funds to Reunite with Her Family in Canada

Update posted by Shogofa Alizada On Dec 24, 2021

Thank you very much to everyone who has continued to support us in the past couple of weeks, whether you have donated money or shared the fundraiser. Your donations and support are incredibly valued! ❤

I am excited to share that we have raised a total of $50,000 through online and offline donations in the past few weeks, and we are very close to our goal of $60,000. As I mentioned before, to submit the sponsorship application to IRCC, I need to have the funds ready by the end of December. However, the SAH organization has agreed to submit the sponsorship applications to IRCC with the $50,000 that has been raised while giving me extra time to raise the remaining amount. For that reason, I have extended the fundraising deadline to February 30th. I am confident that we can raise the remaining amount in the upcoming weeks with your support! Please help us reach our goal by spreading the word with your family, friends, and community.

Currently, I am in the process of reviewing the sponsorship applications with the SAH organization and will submit them to IRCC in early January. Please follow and check my fundraising campaign for updates.

Thank you very much for your continued support and generosity. My family and I are blessed to have your support. I wish you all a very happy holiday season! ❄⛄

Thank you very much for your generous donations; we have raised $5000! I am overwhelmed by your support.

I have received messages from donors sharing their concerns about the donations not appearing on the fundraising page. I have contacted customer service, and here is their response:

"Hi

Thank you for contacting Customer Support.

Due to recent changes in the way PayPal operates, some payments made via crowdfunding platforms, including our own, may become subject to a clearing period (particularly over weekend periods). This means that even if funds have left a donor's account, they could still take several working days to be approved and cleared by PayPal.

Once PayPal clears the funds they notify us electronically and the payment is updated on the campaign page.

Fundraisers are sometimes able to clear donations quicker by logging into their PayPal account and checking notifications and in particular any requirements to acknowledge or process a payment.

If there are no such notifications or instructions from PayPal for the fundraiser, PayPal will clear the funds as soon as possible. We do not have the ability to intervene with this process.

Donors who have donated via their PayPal account can also speed up the clearing period for a donation by selecting the transaction in their recent PayPal activity and clicking the “Confirm” button to validate receipt and satisfaction with the order.

Please be assured, PayPal remains one of the safest and quickest donation methods on our site, however, as a responsible payment processor, they have to balance this with fraud prevention and other protective legislation for all users on crowdfunding platforms.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Kind Regards,"

Please do not hesitate to email me at [email protected] if you have any questions or concerns about the fundraiser.

With love,

Shogofa
