I would like to start a web site to raise money for a court

This answer was rated:

I would like to start a web site to raise money for a court case. I'm currently broke. Please let me know:
#1 Is it legal to do so? (The incident took place in Nevada and I live in California)
#2 What am I allowed to say on the website via video and/or Text that wont undermine my case?
Please advise.
Thank you,
Joseph
