Bright Steps Forward has created a unique new fundraising program for families worldwide who cannot afford the myriad of therapies needed for their child. Our concept is simple: using GoFundMe to tell their compelling story and meet their fundraising goals. Parents and Bright Steps Forward will share their link with family, friends and social networks who are encouraged to support the cause with a donation and help the campaign go viral. GoFundMe works well when you are willing to actively advocate on behalf of your child for private donations.
