    My daughter recently began a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for her own Jerry the Bear.

    In the case of Jerry the Bear, it’s very expensive for a family to afford. It can be a wonderful tool for children with type 1 diabetes. When lots of caring people contribute just a little bit of money, it’s possible for d-kids to raise this large sum.

    If I know the DOC, they like to rally behind people like Beth, who have medical costs, and children like my own who just want to make diabetes a little more easy to deal with.

    (If you would like to take a peek at a Jerry the Bear campaign in action, here’s ours: )

    Do these websites take a portion of the funds raised as a fee for hosting the endeavor?

    I’m leary of this type of crowd funding. I have many questions. Is the person really in a financial bind? Have they explored cutting out cable tv, eating out , Starbucks , down sizing their lifestyle? GoFundMe has people raising money for trips and “stuff”? Am I just funding someone’s lifestyle? I’m very skeptical.
