Families dealing with a loved one’s battle against cancer shouldn’t have to worry about finances. Standbuy is a crowd-funding platform that people can use to raise funds for families going through their own cancer struggles. With Standbuy, people can create profiles, share their stories, and collect funds from friends and relatives who are eager to show their support.
Take a proactive step in helping support a loved one battling cancer by setting up a fundraiser on the Standbuy site. Tell people what you or your loved one is going through — making sure to include specifics meant to help people connect with the story — along with the type of cancer, your geographic location, a special quote, and a fundraising goal. Standbuy will connect your fundraiser to your social media accounts, allowing you to easily share information about your campaign with short blog posts and tweets. Standbuy also gives you the option to automatically alert friends and family via Twitter or Facebook each time you make an update to your Standbuy account.
Friends who visit Standbuy have the option to “follow” your profile and “pitch in” to support your cause. Funds are deposited into your WePay account as they come in, which means you don’t have to wait until your goal has been reached to start receiving financial support. Supporters have the option to donate anonymously, and they can leave notes of support or encouragement, as well.
