Recently on September 8 and 15, 2021, I wrote blogs about getting the most out of your healthcare dollars. Help Hope Live is a foundation that I mentioned ( They have additional information about their group which is added to my blog:
“There are legitimate companies that will help you with this type of fundraising activity in a way that will not jeopardize your disability benefits. One is Help Hope Live ( There are others. Help Hope Live will help you craft your story so that it interests donors. They do not change your story but help highlight different aspects that you may be too close to see. It is like having your personal marketing team. The nonprofit manages all the funds raised for complete donor confidence. They can pay medical bills direct to vendor for qualified medical and related expenses. That way, you eliminate the tax burden, protect your benefits, and also have the benefit of professionals helping to get your story out to more people. A 3% administrative fee applies to donations, but many find it well worth it.”
If you are interested in fundraising, this is a great opportunity as your assets are protected.  Nurse Linda
