Your Georgia Neighbors Ask for Help on GoFundMe

Check out these campaigns on Patch sites in north Georgia.

Earlier this week, many Georgia Patches ran stories with links to fund-raising campaigns in local areas on GoFundMe, a website which is a Patch partner.

In case you missed the stories, here's a look at just some of the campaigns that were written about this week. Unlike other crowdfunding websites like Kickstarter, GoFundMe focuses more on helping people fund very personal goals.
