I researched a lot of platforms like GoFundMe and Eventbrite. I wanted a platform that combined the two, where you could donate AND sell tickets too. The only one that I could find that merged the two was Givebutter. I also wanted one where you could really personalize it. Plus, the fees for Givebutter were less than anybody else I could find. It was really important to Ashley and I that everything went to our cause.
