As the public over the media could count as a rather scary thing, I appreciate and delight to find the positive actions and flows that the media allow. GoFundMe, is a beautiful example of the unity over the media platform, for the way that participation of the audience- is the one that creates the content, and leads the change.
GoFundMe is a crowdfunding platform, created in May 2010 by Brand Damphousse and Andrew Ballester. The idea of the website is to allow individuals to share their story and to raise money from their supporters. The stories on the website are both life events and further challenging circumstances as an illness for instance.
the website is divided into categories while the one that I like the most- is the Love category. Yes, I am such a cliché. However, this category, even though is not urgent and quite ordinary- is a stage for rather romantic stories of
or the difficulty in funding marriage these days. The support, however, is amazing. How self-expression of one, encourage a total stranger to supporting and to possibly fulfil their dreams- is precious, unique, and worth our attention.
Again, I find the public sphere over the media as a challenge for society, as a community and as individuals. We have the responsibility to direct the content, the action, and the power- to create a better place.
