More families relying on crowdfunding for funeral costs amid COVID-19 pandemic

Sharing is Caring!

(WXYZ) — Planning for the unexpected is not something many people do, especially when it comes to losing a loved one.

A growing number of people are now turning to crowdfund platforms like GoFundMe to cover costs associated with medical bills and funeral services.

For some, it’s a gamble and it can often end in disappointment if a person doesn’t collect enough donations.

The CEO of GoFundMe said 1/3 of donations to the site will have gone toward health care or funeral costs. That’s over 250,000 campaigns totaling $650 million. Those numbers keep climbing since the coronavirus pandemic hit.
