Isn’t it time you Give Forward?

Today I want to share with you, in my opinion, one of the best seemingly kept secrets – “Give Forward.” I stumbled across their site not too long ago but didn’t really get the gist of it until speaking with one of their representatives last week. It’s totally cool – especially for those caring for a loved one and trying to keep up with all the expenses.

For instance, say there are 8 adult children, spread all over creation, who are trying to care for their parent/parents and one of the siblings is trying to juggle all the responsibilities including the financial burden. This sibling can go to “Give Forward” and set up a fundraising site to help with the financial part and the other siblings and other family members simply add money to that kitty – so to speak.

Give Forward empowers friends and family to send love and financial support to patients as they navigate a medical crisis in helping reduce the burden of out-of-pocket medical expenses.

How it works:

I think I would have invented something like this – had I thought about it (wink). It’s ingenious and great for all kinds of situations – especially when taking on the boatload of caring responsibilities.

I couldn’t wait to share about it and have added the link on my sidebar for you to come back to in the future – should you decide you needed or for you to share.
