Support for a friend or relative with a disability can take many different forms: from providing general care to making changes and improvements to the home to improve quality of life. Whatever is needed, it can prove to be quite costly and sometimes beyond the means of the individual.
In situations like this crowdfunding can provide a good option for those wanting to raise money to support the disabled, whether that be providing infrastructure, supplies or care for an individual or support to large groups through social initiatives, crowdfunding can be a great way to raise the money you need.
