To start a campaign with GoFundMe you have to be a citizen of one of the AFFILIATED countries, which Mexico isn't. I am not a Mexican citizen anyway. You have to be a citizen of the affiliated country, plus have an address there and a bank account. The bank account is in my name, obviously. Since the whole thing is quite public, the monies are out in the open. GoFundMe charges a commission to the receiver. I will do the withdrawal, once there is a lump sum, to minimize the costs. I can transfer monies from Germany to Mexico with my special Intercam money transfer account, it used to take about 3 working days and the fee was very decent. (When I transferred the monies for my construction in Tenacatita.) The fee is charged per transfer, so the most money-saving way to go about it, is to wait till we have maybe 1,000.- E for the first transfer. I will confer with Valentin about that. I hoped to reach more people with a public campaign like this. And hopefully, I can motivate some people in Europe, too....Penny Parson lives in England right now!She has met Valentin in his place several times, so she knows what he does and how he does it and therefore gladly donated and shared.
I am doing this for the first time, but I know very reliable people who have worked with this organization before with great success!
Please feel free to contact me concerning any questions and doubts either on this page or in a private Facebook message.
