“Americans are helping people pay off their medical debt via crowdfunding sites like GoFundMe — and some are also launching these campaigns for themselves. In a survey conducted from Jan. 25 to Jan. 29, using a nationally representative sample of 1,594 U.S. adults, a new Yahoo News/YouGov poll finds that 24% of respondents have donated to a crowdfunding campaign in order to help cover someone else’s medical expenses. Of that group, 3% reported donating to crowdfunding campaigns at least five times.”
