Help Save My Life is committed to helping you raise funds for yourself or a loved one in need. While every effort is made to ensure as much money as possible is collected and paid to campaigns, it’s a sad fact that running and maintaining a website as well as facilitating online payments are not free services.
In addition to hosting the website and keeping the lights on, the payment gateway that HSML uses charges a transaction fee for each payment received, as well as a withdrawal fee to access any money.
As a result, 5% from the total Net Amount received for a campaign will be donated to HSML in order to cover these operational costs. If your campaign receives more than the required target amount required; in addition to the above mentioned 5% operational fee a further 2.5% of the net amount received will be donated to another campaign of your choice on HSML. This is part of our “Pay it Forward” initiative, after all it’s only fair to do good for someone else that requires funds for their medical treatment 🙂
The remaining monies is paid over to the campaign owner’s medical practitioner in question.
It is important to note that the transaction charge (which is gladly covered by HSML) is applied to every single donation not the total amount. What this means for a campaign owner is that this additional charge must be taken into account when creating your campaign. Rather set your required total higher by an average of 25%-50%.
