As long as you’ve gone to the trouble of buying wedding gifts for your friends, you may as well go ahead and begin funding their divorce. Crowdfunding sites like Plumfund and GoFundMe are letting you do just that.
Crowdfunding at a Glance
It’s hard to argue against the fact the digital age has made many things much easier to accomplish. Crowdfunding is one of the ways its done so. Simply put, crowdfunding is a way of raising money through collective efforts of family, friends and individual contributors.
By using a crowdfunding platform – there’s tons of them out; last count was over 2,000 – you’re given a digital profile so that you can make your pitch about your cause and people can contribute directly online and share the profile.
A Growing Trend
There are crowdfunding sites that allow you to place specific profiles for people facing or considering divorce. So far, Plumfund is the only one with a section dedicated solely to divorce fundraisers. Launched in March of this year, there are already over 140 registries.
Visitors to the sites are encouraged to pool their funds for a host of divorce-related things, including:
- Legal fees
- Living expenses
- New furniture and other household items
- Child support
