The Fagala Fund – Love and Support for Jon and Susanna online fundraising campaign was created by friends of the couple to help them with Jon’s medical expenses. By using and using their paid accounts they were able to keep 100% of all donations and avoid credit card fees– saving them over $500!

On February 9, 2013, Jon collapsed without warning and was taken to the emergency room. While they were examining him, doctors discovered that Jon had a large aneurysm in his heart. Doctors took action by placing a stint in Jon’s heart, but that was not enough to take care of the entire problem. Instead, Jon’s doctor informed him that he would need open-heart surgery, and they scheduled it for the week of February 27, 2013.


The expense of dealing with this unexpected medical nightmare is enormous, and Jon and his wife need all of the help that they can get. Therefore, his friends turned to to help them raise money online for this worthy cause. By using, the host was able to quickly learn how to fundraise without needing any technical knowledge. The website also provided the host with access to multiple fundraising ideas and a social networking integration tool. By taking advantage of everything that provided, the host was able to encourage people to donate online, and the initial goal of $10,000 was exceeded 30 days early.

When you make the decision to raise money online, you also need to decide which website is the appropriate one to help you bring your fundraising ideas to life. By using, Jon’s friends were able to use a low-cost paid account to avoid losing a percentage of the donations that they collected to processing fees. In fact, the online fundraising campaign was able to generate an additional $500 for Jon’s medical expenses by setting up a paid account for a small monthly fee. If the host had asked people to donate online using a free page, they would have lost $500 due to credit card fees and a 5 percent reduction of all donations. As you can see, whether you are in the process of figuring out how to fundraise or have successfully hosted dozens of fundraisers, it makes no sense to voluntarily give away a significant portion of the money that you raise.

Jon’s friends not only used as a resource for raising money online, but they have also been using the page to keep everyone informed about his progress. For example, on February 21, Jon’s doctors took him off of his ventilator for a while. By posting updates on the fundraising page, Jon’s friends are able to keep everyone in the loop in one central online location. The updates also encourage people to make additional donations in order to help take care of all of Jon’s medical needs.

The donation website will help you crowd fund with no technical skills required. The medical crowdfunding can help to cover the treatment expenses.
