Share GiveForum and help the needy.
- New York, NY (1888PressRelease) January 19, 2012 - Introducing GiveForum.org: a Free online personal fundraising platform harnessing the power of email contact lists and social networks.
From cancer patients with medical bills to students needing help with school fees and supplies, more Americans are going online to raise money. The newly launched "Do-it-Yourself personal donation" website, GiveForum.org, promises to make this even easier.
Over half of the donation communities involve friends and family helping one another in a time of personal crisis. GiveForum's goal is to provide a simple, Do-it-Yourself, easy-to-use tool that helps make life a little better during difficult times.
GiveForum.org allows persons in need to create a Request for Contributions stating their unique needs. The website notifies potential donors in an internal donor list and the requester email contact list. Donors give assistance directly to the person in need - all donations go directly into the requester's preferred payment system. Users can choose between PayPal, Moneybookers and Alertpay payment systems to ensure instant and secure access to all money collected.
The service is completely FREE to use. Unlike other DIY donations websites, GiveForum.org does not charge any transaction or processing fees. Users can create their Request for Contributions/Donation page in 60 seconds or less and share it with friends, family and contacts using GiveForum's built-in connections to email, Twitter and Facebook.
According to Michael Thomas, a user who successfully used the service to get the $350 needed to pay the Vet bill for his family's dog Caramel: "Using GiveForum.org was simple. I did not have to worry about whom was taking a percentage of the donations that my friends, family and people on my contact list gave made to me. I received all the funds I needed within 3 days of submitting my request for contributions through Giveforum.org. Being unemployed at the moment, this would have been impossible without it. My children and our Dog Caramel had a Merry Christmas because of this valuable service and I am so grateful."
GiveForum.org is based in Phoenix, AZ. For more information please visit the site at http://www.giveforum.org
