Love Conquers Hate ~ Showing Support with GiveForward


Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post on behalf of GiveForward.

You may have heard in recent news about a prank played on a 14 year old autistic boy in Bay Village.  The boy was tricked into doing the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, and instead of using ice water, his teenage classmates used bodily fluids.

When I heard about this story in the news, I was sickened.  I have heard so many stories about children being bullied, and this is absolutely terrible.  As a mom of young children, this story really scares me.  You want to have faith that people aren’t cruel, but the unfortunate reality is that bad things happen in this world.  There is so much injustice, bullying, and more, and it can make you feel helpless.

Times like these, I wish I could help rally for this teenager, and make his life a little better.  GiveForward is making that a reality.

GiveForward is one way to bring people together to support causes, and is the world’s #1 fundraising site to help people who need it the most.

GiveForward is one of the top online fundraising websites and easiest ways to help a loved one in need. While many online fundraising websites cater towards more general fundraising efforts, GiveForward specializes in and is the premier online platform for medical fundraising.

Since August of 2008, we have helped thousands of people raise millions of dollars online for things like general medical expenses, cancer treatment, transplants, funeral costs and disaster-relief. Whether you or a loved one is in need, our team is committed to helping our users bring their fundraising plans to life and supporting them all throughout their fundraising experience.

There are so many instances you may hear about a cause you want to support – or one that you want to start.  This is an easy way that people around the world can come together to rally for a cause and raise money for things they care about.

Give Forward has time and time again shown that people do come together and do something about the things that are important.  For example, Pat and Jess, newlyweds who lost their legs in the Boston Marathon bombing.  Funds were raised to help with their medical bills and much more.

It can be easy to feel like other people are going to help, or that there isn’t a way for you to help.  But with programs like GiveForward, it empowers people who want to help by giving them the opportunity to do so.
