A touching picture of a child, an emotional story and a donation button: money is collected online. Sometimes successful, sometimes unsuccessful – and sometimes wrongly.
Delia, Sarah and Samuel do not know each other, but they have something in common. Their names and faces circulate on the web, combined with the call to help them. Not all of them will get the help they need – and not all need support at all.
Sarah, eleven, and Delia, fifteen, are sick. Their stories are two in the tens of thousands published on private fundraising platforms such as Leetchi and Gofundme. The platforms are constantly growing – and they are changing the way we donate.
