Have you ever used "crowdfunding"?
You may have noticed that crowdfunding sites such as GoFundMe and Crowdrise are increasing in popularity. A few years ago, I was invited to teach some mental health seminars in Africa, but the sponsoring organization didn't fund the trip. I used GoFundMe to cover some of my expenses. Last night, I saw something on Facebook that shocked me, though: one of my friends (employed, management level, middle aged) was crowd funding for general maintenance on his car. It would have never occurred to me to ask my friends to help cover everyday expenses unless I was in an emergency situation. What do you think? Would you crowdfund? fopp finances crowdfunding
