So you noticed a little box on your GoFundMe campaign that says "This campaign is trending!”
A "trending" GoFundMe campaign means that you’ve gotten a lot of support in a short amount of time, and it’s our goal to help campaign organizers understand how to reach this milestone. In general, this little box will show up on your GoFundMe when you hit these marks:
- Your campaign was started less than 6 weeks ago
- There are more than 25 shares
- You’ve received at least 4 donations
The beginning of a GoFundMe campaign is usually the busiest time. This is when you’ll receive the most support and you’ll notice a lot of activity on your campaign. You’ll want to raise awareness to ensure your potential donors know about your GoFundMe.
Don't worry if your campaign isn't trending or if it stops trending, it's all part of how viral fundraising works. Be sure to keep people engaged in your campaign by asking them to not only donate but to share your campaign and get your story out there. It’s important to keep in mind that actively promoting your fundraiser online is what makes crowdfunding possible.
