All-in-One Crowdfunding Platforms

Supportful Offers Different Pathways of Help During COVID-19

— April 29, 2020 — Lifestyle
Most crowdfunding platforms allow individuals to raise money for a person, product, or a cause, however, Supportful takes this to another level. Marketed as an all-in-one tool, the crowdfunding platform enables users to offer support in different ways, including transportation, meals, babysitting, and more.

Amid the COVID-19 outbreak, Supportful has created a dedicated page to curate pandemic-specific relief efforts, whether that be a monetary donation or a gesture. Aside from directly supporting impacted communities, other ideas include the creation of virtual tip jars or hosting virtual happy hours to help local businesses. Another idea is to create specialized care packages for essential workers or those in need, as well as coordinating "virtual check-ins" like managing digital playdates or coordinating group hangouts.
