I'm sure a yurt would be very cool. But many thousands (millions?) of people could use a yurt as well. What makes your need more worthy than theirs? Why should my funding go to you instead of some other worthy cause?
Making the viewer of your GoFundMe campaign clearly see why your project is more "worthy" would probably increase your funding chances.
That's just my guess though. Good luck!
