Would You Help A Stranger?

Recently my husband I were headed to visit family for the holidays. We stopped at a gas station to top off and grab some refreshments. While walking out of the convenience store I was approached by a homeless man. I had paid for my items using cash so I was just putting it in my pocket. The man asked if I could spare a dollar.

In that brief moment of time it made me think about a number of different things. Yes I could spare the dollar to help out a fellow human being who was standing out in freezing whether conditions. Which led to the train of though regarding my GoFundMe. Would you help a stranger raise money for a cause that was very important to them? 




My campaign description goes on to explain that I have been struggling with acne for 15 years and suffer the consequences of all the left behind scarring. While being on Accutane has dramatically reduced the redness of my scarring I still live with the large amount of uneven skin texture. 


You can imagine the insecurities that I have lived with and all of the negative things that have been said about me. I'm finally to a point in my life where I can leave the house with only a light coverage foundation.



Can you spare $5 to help a women feel more comfortable in her skin?

  2. I don't personally have the funds for that, but I relate to your struggle. I have lots of scarring from acne as a teenager and young adult, and still battle with it now but not as bad. I tried everything before and nothing seemed to make a big enough difference. It is what it is for me, although sometimes my eyes zero in on the scarring and it irritates me and makes me sad. I hope you find a way to be comfortable in your skin, whether from gofundme or otherwise.

  3. So glad to see things have improved for you with Accutane! I'd love to help with your donation account too, but sadly last year was pretty rough for my family and adjusting to single motherhood has been a major financial challenge. I have very little to spare these days - but I wish you the very best as you reach for your goals.

  13. I had acne growing up as well and had used every product I could get my hands on at the time. I think I finally grew out of it through my diet and just how my body changed. Hope you can get the treatment you need.

  14. I had the same problem. I refused accutane though. They put me on antibiotics which reeked havoc on my body and caused me to be so sick for years. Once I stopped taking the antibiotics I started using AcneFree which is what finally worked to clear up the acne. I of course have the scarring as well though. It's not as bad as it used to be though.

  15. I am inspired by your bravery to write about and help other women who suffer with the same struggles and have enjoyed reading your post. I honestly if I had extra to spare would help you or any stranger who needed something. I personally have been struggling with my move and not even being able to help my children and feel awful when I can't help. I know if I were in my home country the tables would look a lot different. I look forward to continuing to read your post and hope you gofundme is prosperous!

  17. I would be happy to help but I think you look beautiful regardless. Our flaws are what makes us beautiful but I understand that the negativity can get you down. Those bullies are not worth your time xx

  19. It's never easy to deal with something that constantly keeps your self esteem down. I suffer from skin issues as well, and I can't really leave the house wearing anything short, from skirts to shorts or dresses. I hope things go well for you!

  31. I myself suffered with scars all over my body from mosquito bites. I lived an area that was affected by mosquitoes. Growing up I wore a lot of pants and long sleeve clothes. By the time I was 18, I choose to stop hiding. I used BIO oil. I am now 30 and the scars are no longer as visible. Barely!

  32. I see where you're coming from but at the same time I could make a campaign for different things too. Living with scars on your face is tough I'm sure.
