Emergencies happen. It’s a part of life. Some are big, some are small. Some emergencies are caused by accident, others by random acts of nature. But whatever the cause, one thing is certain – anyone who is affected by an emergency is prone to financial crisis. In fact, nearly two thirds of Americans don’t have enough savings to cover a $500 emergency. So whether the brakes on the family car need replacing, or a flood tears through the town, most of us will need help getting back onto our feet. If you’re like a majority of Americans, and find yourself in need of help during a time of crisis, emergency fundraising might be your only option.
The term emergency is commonly attributed to large scale natural disasters, like hurricanes, fires, floods, etc. But on a more personal scale, emergencies can be as simple as a minor car accident or impactful as an unexpected job loss. Here is a list of the most common emergencies we see on Mightycause:
