While sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo are great for startups trying to get financing for their entrepreneurial endeavors and unusual projects, this free crowdfunding platform is intended for medical costs and emergencies. Throughtful.org enables people to fundraise with dignity when trying to address costly medical expenses.

Founded by Derek Rey, Thoughtful.org is a social enterprise that keeps families exhausting their resources in the midst of an already stressful and traumatic time in mind. The free crowdfunding site ensures your effort to raise finances appears alongside appropriate content, and not a potato salad plea.

The platform does not charge fees, but asks donors to give an 'optional gift' on top of their payments. Users also don't need to reach their goal in order to receive donations.
