Warwick digs deep: Top 5 gofundme campaigns

OVER the past few years Warwick residents have raised over $35,000 for local gofundme campaigns.

Go Fund Me takes 6.75% from each donation, meaning the organisation has collected at least $20,800 from Toowoomba campaigns since 2010.

One of the most popular campaigns was the plight of the Farrell family after dad Scott was horrifically injured in a paramotor accident in October 2015.

Caring locals chipped in almost $10,000 to help the young family through a very tough time.

Another story that captured the hearts of Warwick people was Saving Suzan, a young mother with a brain tumour and a family struggling to make ends meet.

This campaign raised over $4000.

Others however, were less successful.

Like the young man who attempted to raise $146 to pay his Foxtel bill so he could watch the next day's V8 Supercar race.

His total amount raised? $0.

Another young hopeful attempted to talk people into assisting him to by the Battlefield 4 video game, and was also successful in raising absolutely nothing.

When the story and the need is genuine however, residents dug deep.

A caring friend started a page for a young man who was devastated after his Skyline was stolen.

Friends, family and people from around the region chipped in almost $1400, which no doubt would have been a great help.
