I want to give a quick shout-out to the Givebutter team! We had many team fundraisers, which seemed really overwhelming to me. When I live chatted Givebutter, I had help setting it up within a minute, which was amazing. I was not expecting that. It's great for people to know that there's really a support team on the backend! And that support continued throughout the campaign. I was always able to reach the Givebutter team quickly and get support. Someone was always there to back me, which was really helpful.
