The holidays are coming up and it’s a perfect time to help neighbors in need.

We highlighted causes in your area that are asking for assistance in dealing with an accident or emergency.

You can browse the GoFundMe campaigns above to find someone to help.

Unlike other crowdfunding websites like Kickstarter, GoFundMe focuses more on helping people fund very personal goals like school tuition, medical bills or, in the cases above, people whose lives have been turned upside down by an accident or other misfortune. GoFundMe is a Patch partner. If you would like to contact a fundraiser or flag a campaign, just click on the images above.

Do you know of a project in town that deserves funding? Let us know in the comments, in a blog post, or head over to GoFundMe.com to start one.
