In August 2014 YoFundMi, together with FUN Sports Events, held a social and fun Pool Tournament to raise funds for the Northern Suburbs branch of Anti-Animal Cruelty League. The Tournament was held to raise money in order to purchase blankets to keep the puppies, kittens, dogs and cats warm in winter, in their kennel environment.

We were successful in raising enough money to supply, just short of, a 100 blankets to Anti-Animal Cruelty League. See and read more…

Dear Campaigner(s),

RE: NAME CHANGE

We would like to inform all our Campaigners of our NAME CHANGE from GofundmeSA to Yofundmi which is affecting our Brand throughout, namely our website, domain address, social media pages (i.e. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Google) and the registered Non Profit Company (NPC) name. This has come as a result of Yofundmi formerly named GofundmeSA being challenged by GoFundMe Inc from America, the USA. Also please take note that the name “Yofundmi” is subject to a reservation and registration process, should this name not be available, the name might change again in the near future. We would like to thank you in advance for your understanding patients and trust in us, our new brand and our Non Profit Company (Reg. No. 2017/010384/08) is always subject to registration change.

Instead of us challenging GoFundMe Inc (USA) at the RSA High Court, we made a strategic move to simply change our name and avoid spending literally thousands of Rands to retain the name which we might or might not retain even though we have registered 4 (four) NPC’s namely Gofundme, Gofundme SA, Gofundme RSA and Gofundme South Africa; hence the launch of our new brand Yofundmi which pronounced “Yo fund my”, as in Yo fund my Campaign / Cause / Story / Dream, etc.

Although we have had to address the adversity as GofundmeSA we realise that there is opportunity in the threat posed and we believe the bigger the threat, the bigger the opportunity, thus the opportunity being that we are now moving from a National Crowd Funding Platform in South Africa, we are now evolving into an International Crowd Funding Platform, and this has to have an beneficial impact to our existing campaigners and our future campaigners, moving from one country to over three hundred countries worldwide, that our campaigners will now be exposed to which will surely have financial benefits for our campaigners as they are not limited to receiving exposure in South Africa alone but now to the rest of the world.

We at Yofundmi would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your past support as a Crowd Funding Platform, which has worked well for many of our campaigners, and we believe now that we are moving from a National to an International platform that this can only improve and benefit our existing and future campaigners.

We thank you and look forward to your continual support by using our platform, Yofundmi.

Thank you.
