Give Send Go co-founder Heather Wilson called the program to discuss the crowdfunding site's mission and the political climate shaping much of our public discourse.
"Raise money to share hope. Money is temporary Jesus is eternal. Give both and watch the world be changed."
For family caregivers living with significant costs and challenges, Give Send Go can be a powerful resource to help.
In this.com comments questions will run cold show opened the caregiver.com. If you watch the dues you been watching this whole thing with the Canadian truckers and all the stuff going on with this.
And then there's this company that you showed up on the radar for me and I'm sad to say, I didn't know a lot about the investigator and its give sin go alternative go fund me, but I was very disappointed to see the go fund me was playing politics with what was called the people trying to help support the truckers there in Canada and other things about why this if they want to give the go to shut down some. They don't like their guess what started out over here to and I thought getting alternative.
And that's what I when I discovered give sin go and so I have Heather Wilson and she's one of the cofounders. Your brother Jacob founded this company and she saw the focus because I have something to reply to us as caregiver so Heather, welcome to the program and thank you for taking the time to call it tells the story of give sin go now.
I like and I think missionary things like that and we were talking about what it would look like I need to write really cool cool idea that people come together to be doing me.and we would look like if there any question about outback now. I mean, my brother Jacob to make it to Emily Lee and Dr. company get banged out and being out pop I'm doing a great job of allowing people to write and we knew that. I have your financial thing yesterday helping the immediate situation greater than that may help and hope come together and I get kind of like walking out and around five years later I would grow year-over-year people, noncommissioned And medical building and about two years ago I found a political battle because I think I'll written out and got anything deep I'm not everywhere out and looking at my and go to court and we allow him into the addition and recently demonstrate that we have the convoy that went to go fund me everybody when I saw the tractor convoy go to go fund me in dealing funny over the last several years.
It made it very no political ideology into what they allowing don't allow, and we thought play out where where go fund me if I go I can go to get everything and the campaign convoy came to get banged out and then placed on the 10 $10 million bracket packing the $8 million that was made of our ongoing funding will so universal that you do this, I did not know that you were in the middle of the sea was calm and house and how are you doing leveraging these political waters. What would sacred you what I actually have your yellow in the Bible when he was a child and your brother walking out and obedient like a good thing. The bang upon and I feel like we did that you think I would talking obediently felt like I wanted a platform we arrived in the middle of the battlefield Emily Bedwell about what's going on and a giant bear mocking God and God is greater than that and we found out you know battle and we got anything people in both Christian Christians that they be apologetic email from non-Christians and people on that site and we thank you agree with every campaign are people wanting to know the efforts being pushed by so many of our society that wanted to shut down any type of dissent. If you don't agree with, as opposed to you what you just said letting people express. However, the going expressive and you certainly have guidelines that you do that you have been boundaries as well people to do things porn and all that stuff anything like that but I wanted to specifically cut up a little bit into some the things that Philip my audience would find this meaningful is that this can help with medical significant medical challenges that are going on with talk a little bit about that. You said a lot of that going on give sin go major category. A lot of people find in the middle of having commended medical bills that they weren't expecting her hadn't planned for and they feel alone in it and the cool thing about crowdfunding is that one person with $10,000 beginning think 10,000 people attend dollars right or you get a big crowd of people, each getting a little and you can make a tremendous difference in the world and that's another thing that people are looking for community and give think I got it come to get started campaign share with your community.
Let them know me know what your walking trail and allow them to be a part.
A lot of times were afraid people for help in their people going. I wish I had no I wish I knew you were going to bed happy to help you should go do it alone and get think that we first teams that we hired what I pretty much everything that every campaign to get started on get think I'll get the call to prayer Park you want to start a campaign your caregiver and year find yourself adding one more medical builder that you just weren't expecting you didn't plan for and you start I campaign on get bingo dead weight on you get a phone call from someone at the meeting.
Everything on your caregiver or maybe your mom can pray with you right now that God is with you through this journey that you're going to Emily.
People get blown away you be a Christian to come on get banged out. Yeah even have that all our whole goal is to share hope in people. What often times feel like a hopeless situation to slowly move.
This is a think about all the people that listen to this program who are struggling and they need a break. They need some kind of respite care they need something, but they don't have the funds to pay a service to come in or something like that, even if it's just one day a week of something as simple as respite care can be available to a family to a family that is struggling with needs and just put it up and let the community here about this and said summons Nicole and pray with you about this and see that you have a need. This is what Scripture talks about bearing one another's burdens, and this is such a magnificent display of this and what these folks done and is doing this to promote what Christ is said to each other. If you don't do that we do we know what I was sick and was making 100.
Whatever we can't give up. We don't know about. So I wanted to introduce this wonderful service to this audience give sin go Heather in the last couple minutes was something that you like for everybody to know about you all, and was the best way people could just start this process again and to go.com and now he walked a couple of creating your campaign and you don't have to be there and you can choose to collect the money.
Your writing fun for somebody out and then you start sharing your campaign with friends and family and your social circle to let them know I feel like today. Day and age that community you know when the last two years with COBIT and all the friction that we block that and we need to get back to knowing that we have a community of people that are supporting us and Frank Brett and and just there to help out when things are rough and we all got to come to get then go on started campaign the way that allow friends and family and your people in your circle know what you're going through right now, but I think I now and maybe a prayer method even maybe not able to get your getting and encouraging people, lifting you up and letting you know that you not allow & go.com your campaign today.
This wonderful little technical matter here is the money is distributed out will be taxable to the court that this was some type of tax professional know how I weird right now. The government not really regulating much in trying to figure how to regulate if you read over this current time I checked back on right you made over $20,000 from oh from over 200 people on your get a 1099 and by our profit thereto. You, but we've talked with people and giving small get you know you might get a 1099 but you just shout looking.
All the people that gave me to get small get not know people not income for me and found it made you know again company tax professional. You have to read over $20,000 with over 200 givers and that changing all the time and felt I would check on, but there are ways around of things either like a little gift from individual people and a lot of great great will you turn here and you don't have to do this for yourself. Maybe you know a family that is really struggling and they could benefit from some sums some help.
They may not have a big network would you do start a give sin go campaign today for that family story. But let's all together as believers and let's do this. Let's show the world what looks like Christmas is Heather Wilson. Thank you so much a part of this said, go.com Heather goes back on your store and helping word out what they tend to help themselves.
