After "coming out" to my mom, she made the suggestion that I create a blog and account on a fundraising site so I can ask close friends and family to help us out with the costs (she is certain people will want to help). Yesterday, I spent most of the day (when I should have been working) writing up an "about us" and researching fundraising sites. At first, I was sure that Give Forward would be the way to go, but their rates are very high. So instead I found, Donate a Gift, which looked like it had lower rates, until I went through the entire process of setting up the account. At the very end, I realized they have extra fees that they tack on to each donation with makes their fees just as much as Give Forward! Grrrrr.
Have any of you used any fundraising sites that have decent rates?
I know I should probably do all this after we complete IUI#4 but I don't have a lot of confidence it will work and I need to get this show on the road. Either my Aunts and Uncles will come out in force and we will have the money for IVF in no time, or no one will and we'll be fundraising for a looooonnnnng time. If it's the latter, I want to get started ASAP.
