In Coronavirus Recession, the Out-of-Work Turn to GoFundMe

Jim Mimna, a concert photographer in the Denver area, was on the phone with a friend recently when the conversation turned to his finances. Mr. Mimna’s business was in free fall and he worried he would get evicted because he couldn’t pay the rent.

Shortly afterward, his friend, Joe Michaels, pulled up the crowdfunding website GoFundMe and created a page labeled “Our Fave Photog Needs Our Help.” He shared it on Facebook and, within days, the fundraiser surpassed its goal of $4,500.
