A man from Atlanta started a GoFundMe page to help raise money for his girlfriend’s engagement ring.
William Oliver started the GoFundMe campaign with a goal of $15,000. He said his girlfriend had a really innovative way to show her appreciation by buying 30 gifts for his 30th birthday. So he said he wanted “a more innovative way to show my appreciation while incorporating friends and family.”
He posted the GoFundMe link to Facebook and wrote,
“I’ve decided to get some help by making this a trending approach. This will raise awareness about the difference between the love we share and the love people have for us. Money for the engagement is your chance to get involved. I’ve heard everything from “I Love Yall” to “You need to put a Ring On It” etc etc. “
William also added,
“My approach is a little different. We have friends, family, and colleagues that don’t mind passing up a drink or a sandwich to help out. Anything helps. All proceeds will go to the purchase of a beautiful engagement ring one that WE ALL can be proud of. Call me crazy but Love is Free Not Engagement Rings and Weddings.”
So far he has only raised $594 of his $15,000 goal.
