It is of course entirely up to you whether you want to donate to our campaign or directly to charity. As long as the money goes to charity, we’re happy. We do think, however, that the more money we raise with our campaign, the more publicity we will be able to generate. More publicity will in turn lead to even more donations, and more money for Plan International.
We’d have loved it if we could send your full donation directly to Plan. At the same time, we understand that GoFundMe needs to absorb a fraction of the raised funds to keep offering their services. Their platform allowed us to quickly and easily set up this campaign for charity, so we can live with that. We hope you can too.
Both GoFundMe and Plan International allow a minimum amount of 5 euros for donations (the amount might differ based on your currency). If you want to donate less, that is not possible. If you’re one of those who forgets to unmute very often, we’ll allow you to skip a donation every now and then ;-)
If your day-to-day doesn’t include video calls, chances are the ‘you’re still on mute’ anecdote doesn’t speak to you. We chose this phrase because it does speak to many, especially in times when working remotely is the norm. We try to be as inclusive as possible, but unfortunately we’ve failed in your case. Please don’t let that stand in your way of donating to Plan International!
