CashSherpa.com not only features technology we also like to feature good causes. On February 7, 2017, Sue White and her daughter, Nichole Furr, experienced a house fire due to a faulty dryer outlet. They need your help! Learn more: https://www.gofundme.com/milton-indiana-family-loses-home-fire

Milton House

What Happened? 

“The fire has caused their home in Milton, Indiana to be unliveable and they and Nichole’s two children, Taylor and Julian are left with nowhere to live and most of their belongings are ruined. They did not have renter’s insurance so there is no insurance coverage to help. They and the children are devastated from the aftermath of the fire and are greatly in need of any help that anyone can give. Nichole is a single mom of two teens and Sue is on disability due to some medical issues – so funds are pretty much non-existent. We are so thankful they all made it out of the fire that very quickly spread and even the dogs, Roe-Roe and Rhodie, made it out of the fire, safely. Sue and Nichole are two of the most caring people, always there to help others when they need it most. Anyone who can donate even a few dollars to the recover of my family, please do. We will be forever greatful. They have all been through so much and it would be really nice to show them they aren’t alone and that they have so many that care. This GoFundMe is to help raise enough money to get them another rental home where they can live and any of the things they need such as furniture, clothing, and everything in between. Setting 2 separate households up with the necessities has proven to be a huge challenge. This help has proven to be so necessary and is deeply appreciated.”

This is the Milton Family that needs your help.

How Are They Doing?

They seems to be getting a lot of support already with many of the donations coming in a $25, $50, and $100.

The Milton family is just barely at the halfway mark to reaching their goal. Without renter’s insurance there is no other way to raise the money without the help of a site like GoFundMe. Consider helping out the Milton’s visit: https://www.gofundme.com/milton-indiana-family-loses-home-fire

What’s The Amphloat V1?

“The Amphloat V1 is a Patent Pending emergency flotation system made up of 4 units that are placed on each side of a vehicles undercarriage, the units deploy when the vehicle enters life threatening water, there is a depth sensor, mixing Module that triggers ignition, compressed gas canister, and flotation bag.”

Amphloat

What The Purpose?

“The system is designed to give the vehicles occupants a lot more time to escape the vehicle safely should an accident happen where a vehicle leaves the road and goes into a lake, river, sea, or flash flooding.”

Back Story

“Ive always tried to think of ways to make a safety system that would allow flotation of a vehicle should something happen for whatever reason and it enters deep water. seeing that there wasnt any type of product on the market myself and my partner decided to design this system and try get it funded for worldwide production.”

Fran Morgan-hughes and his engineering partner want you to be apart of the process. They plan to show you the journey, step-by-step. The team is even open to suggestions stating: “Want to suggest a change ect. please do not hesitate we will welcome ideas.” Interested in this Go Fund Me Project?

Sullivan’s Restaurant Community Assurance Maintenance And Home Improvements

  • Comments Off on Sullivan’s Restaurant Community Assurance Maintenance And Home Improvements

This is an interesting GoFundMe project I just recently discovered… The New Sullivan’s Restaurant and Tavern in partnership with Community Assurance Maintenance and Home Improvements wants to give back to the local community and needs your help. The New Sullivan’s Restaurant and Tavern has opened a GoFundMe page with a $35,000 goal. Help them reach there goal: https://www.gofundme.com/sullivansgivesback

Where Is The Money Going?

“Community Assurance Maintenance and Home Improvements will be using the funds donated to this campaign to purchase the equipment needed to provide services to those in need in our community with whatever jobs can help the less fortunate (whether that means replacing a bathroom floor, replacing a water heater, plumbing work, electric work etc etc). The owners/operators of both companies will take requests for these jobs and provide the tools and labor needed to complete the jobs. And Sullivan’s will be giving away free meals on specific days of each week to anyone who needs a meal.”

GoFundMe Community

Why GoFundMe?

“We set a goal of $35,000.00 to set up the budgets and funds to accommodate these primary goals as well as to set up some events in our establishment to raise awareness and additional funds for these goals. Additional funds are always appreciated and we want to specify that all additional funds will increase the repair budgets and increase the food budgets to be able to accommodate more people and more projects.”

Bonuses?

Yes, there are bonuses for certain funding levels. For example just $100 gets you one ticket to their grand opening event. The top tier, $5,000, gets you “ultimate reward” plus a monthly one year dinner for two at Sullivan’s Blackstone, VA! Now that’s an amazing perk I must say.

GoFundMe is the number one do-it-yourself fundraising website online. I’m happy to see organizations like Sullivan’s leveraging this technology to give back to their local community.

“We are a prior service family, I am a US Army Veteran   E-6 of 12 years, 10 active duty stationed in Europe and 2 national guard in Maine. I am married to my best friend, and have the best son (14) which I took care of from age 4 to now which I have fully adopted and couldn’t be more proud and my daughter (7) who is the most adorable loving girl and I could never ask for more, also couldn’t forget our 2 labs and 1 cat which we treat as our own babies lol.”

Go Fund Vet

What Happened

“Towards the end of my deployment I received an important message to call my Command Sergeant Major, this was the worst news I have ever received and wish not this happens to anybody. When I called he explained my wife was in a head on collision on the highway and she was sent to the hospital via life flight but passed away due to her injuries, and also that there were kids involved but didn’t know if they were mine at the time.

I had no clue what to do, I broke down, for the next 5 minutes before the next call I was in despair and felt I was in a dream. In the next call he told me my wife was revived, and in ICU but unsure if she would make it through the night, also the kids were from the other vehicle and also the other driver who were OK, I started my way back ASAP and it took a long 4 days with no updates on my wife’s status.

After several surgeries and therapy sessions later my wife was finally able to come home, although in a wheelchair for the next few months I didn’t care, it was December 24th and was the best dam Christmas present I could ever receive, she was safe and in my arms.”

Progress

Just 12 days ago family posted how close they are to reaching their goal. It’s amazing to see all the love and support coming from the GoFundMe community. Really glad people are willing to help and empathize with complete strangers.

This family still needs your help.
