(A message from GoFundMe CEO Tim Cadogan)
The global GoFundMe community is coming together to support each other at an unprecedented rate.
More than 22,000 COVID-19 related fundraisers have been created in the past several weeks.
Communities have come together in the face of overwhelming uncertainty and in a short time have raised over $40 million for those in need…
This global crisis is also bringing out the very best of humanity, with people coming together to support one another in every conceivable way:
An entire community in Milan, Italy joined together to provide hospital ICU units with crucial medical supplies;
Boston neighbors are rallying to support their favorite bookstore;
Hollywood workers are supporting their fellow staff while production halts;
Teachers are ensuring their students have lunch even though school is not in session;
Restaurant owners are paying their wait staff while doors are closed.
We are proud to provide the global community a take action button, making it easy to help people around the world.
