For what it's worth, my street medic collective has been working with another collective in Houston to get supplies there -- https://www.facebook.com/Bayou-Action-Street-Health-BASH-868606126613493/ is their page, they have an Amazon wish list and a paypal: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/ls/ref=?ie=UTF8&%2AVersion%2A=1&%2Aentries%2A=0&lid=26UOYXYJ77GJW&ty=wishlist and paypal.me/BASH2017

Goal doesn't matter too much on GoFundMe since you get the money whether the goal is met or not -- more a way of communicating what is needed for something specific (like bail money or repairing a building or w/e).

Biggest issue with a crowdfunding campaign is that people need to trust you, which is hard to do unless you're a known entity like the DSA (which is running a crowdfunding campaign right now). There's legitimate worry about scams via crowdfunding activism right now.
