Donna Nelson put her faith in crowdfunding solution GoFundMe to help her fulfill her stated lifelong dream to do volunteer missionary work—and her prayers were answered.

On Dec. 3, the Wayne resident started a campaign on the donation site to help her fund a trip to Guatemala as part of a Frontlines Missions ministry team. There, she plans to "help ... bring medical needs, construct buildings and teach the poor and needy who have no other options." Her goal was to raise $2,600.

As of Thursday, she has just gone over: The campaign has generated $2,670 in donations.

Consider kicking some cash into the pot for the holidays to allow the altruistic Donna Nelson some additional mad money for her journey, and check out other area GoFundMe efforts that could use your assistance.
