I have set up a GoFundMe page, but I am concerned about a few things.
1- I have set it up on behalf of the community in this forum, hope this is ok with every one.
2- Will Fecepa hang around long enough to receive the donations?
3- I emailed fecepa at 8:30 am Los Angeles time, and asked for more info, he/she has not responded yet.
4- Will this open up an opportunity for individuals to fake emergencies on the Camino?
5- Will this be ok with the moderator?
6- This is my first GoFundMe attempt and still don't know how this campaign will wrap up and how long it would take, so please be friendly.
Please chime in.

I am willing to donate, but I appreciate your concerns. I think we need to talk to Fecapa, see how/she is doing.

Camino de Frances - Sarria to Santiago (2013), Burgos to Leon (2014), St Jean Pied de Port to Logrono (2015), Logrono to Burgos (2016), Leon to Sarria (May 2017).
Surely, if anyone has the misfortune to suffer such a monetary loss on the Camino he/she will be able to call on family and/or friends to help out? In extreme cases I expect that one's country's embassy in Madrid will be able to assist.
