How It Works


Families apply for aid on Help Me Bounce and are approved based on our program guidelines.  To begin their campaign, families create funding goals indicating what they are raising money for, for how much, and for how long.

Families will then populate their profile with their story and their profile image.  Once they are approved and their profile is live, families are able to blog and share their page with their network!  Help Me Bounce Infographic


Donors have the ability to search for a family they know, or to find a family that tugs on their heartstrings - whether it's a family in their community or someone with a medical crisis that is near and dear to them, we are putting the decision in the hands of our donors.

Donors will then be able to directly impact that family by determining how their gift will be used based on that family's funding goals.

Spare Key's Role

Spare Key makes payments directly to the lenders/servicer for each funding goal, so donors can have 100% assurance and 100% of their donation will go exactly where it was intended.

Our goal with the Help Me Bounce platform is to help thousands of families "Bounce and Not Break" during a medical crisis. By driving "crowds" to the site, we will give our families access to a network of donors and support to dramatically impact their funding goals and medical crisis.

Not only is Help Me Bounce meant to be a source of financial support, but also a network of hope and encouragement as families face the difficulties of a medical crisis. By continuing to invest in building out this platform, we aim to give families every kind of support they need to help them take care of their loved ones.

All attempts to host a fraudulent campaign - including, but not limited to, false claims of illness or injury, impersonating a medical professional to verify an illness or injury, or providing false information for a 3rd party servicer in funding goal information - will be denied and reported to the appropriate authorities for prosecution.
