GoFundMe's platform is excellent - you can add photos and videos in the story area and perks too. It's easy to use. The best I've seen so far and I've tried 3 others. When I had questions, the response time was phenomenal, friendly and supportive.

The mission is a great one, but the measure of a great organization is its response to issues. Issues happen. I had one (a minor one). GoFundMe’s response was outstanding. They were responsive, quick to move to resolution, and required very little of me to close the issue to my unconditional satisfaction. Really, really well done, GoFundMe.

GoFundMe is an excellent resource for raising funds. They were incredibly helpful when Tabletop Gaymers first started to raise funds online. They have incredibly good customer service and their response times to tickets (even at 3:00am) is amazing. The only reason I am not willing to give them 5-Stars is because of their billing policy. They take 0% of personal campaigns, but 5% of nonprofit campaigns. This seems backwards to me.
