I think we have all heard stories about people who have lost a loved one unexpectedly and how the trauma of their loss is compounded with worry for their financial future, even down to funeral expenses. Just thinking about this makes me sad on so many levels. I’ve been so lucky that my family and I haven’t been faced with this, but I know people who have and I’ve been left wanting to help them, but not sure how to best help. I was also unsure how to organize a group effort of help. That is why I was really comforted to know that there is a new way to help them get some much-needed help during this difficult time and it is called alittlehelp.com.
ALittleHelp is a community-funding platform for communities to support their friends and family members who have experienced the loss of a loved one. It helps those that find themselves in an unplanned financial struggle. It’s also a platform to celebrate the lives of those that were lost.
The unfortunate reality is that tragedies happen to good people every day. And in far too many situations, surviving members of a family find out too late that a financial plan wasn’t in place, or that it doesn’t cover all of what’s needed in the short term.
I explored ALittleHelp and was really impressed by how they are helping those in need. They make setting up a fund quick and easy and it is ready in just a few minutes. The support goes further because ALittleHelp doesn’t keep any portion of contributions—other sites can take up to 9% of your donation. The only cost involved is the standard Paypal transaction fee of 2.9% and a per contribution fee of $0.30. They also focus solely on memorial funds, where other sites support a variety of causes so this keeps the focus on those experiencing a loss.
ALittleHelp provides support for funeral and memorial service expenses, medical bills, mortgage or rent, school/college tuition, car payments and child care.
It is also sponsored by Legal & General America, a life insurance company with more than 65 years of experience that is part of the worldwide Legal & General Group. Since 1949, they’ve been committed to protecting families and communities. They know from experience that life insurance policies help families go on; the policy proceeds can help pay the mortgage, put food on the table, and keep college dreams alive.
