"Normally, funds start being set aside for relief projects only after someone in need submits a proposal. However, for emergency situations like the recent Oklahoma Tornadoes, we don't like to wait." David Mason, CabinetHardware.org Founder
Moore, OK (PRWEB) May 23, 2013
A special relief fund has been created at CabinetHardware.org for Oklahoma Tornado Victims. CabinetHardware.org’s founder David Mason said, "Normally, funds start being set aside for relief projects only after someone in need submits a proposal. However, for emergency situations like the recent Oklahoma Tornadoes, we don't like to wait. So we've started the fund immediately, and later we'll allocate those funds to specific projects once the applications come in."
CabinetHardware.org offers a groundbreaking approach to charitable giving, donating 10% from every sale for relief efforts in homes, businesses and communities around the country and the world. It is now calling on individuals and organizations in the area of Moore, Oklahoma who need help with rebuilding to upload details of their project to its website and energize friends, family, neighbors and colleagues to help turn rebuilding dreams into reality.
The process of requesting funding has been kept deliberately quick and easy to enable access for all. Those with a project requiring donation finance are invited to tell their story by recording a 1 to 3 minute video. CabinetHardware.org asks for videos rather than written requests to make the process fun and allow homeowners and community leaders to show rather than tell what they need. Those submitting projects have complete freedom to share their circumstances and can choose the level of grant that they need. In the case of the Oklahoma Tornado Victims it's even easier, as money can start accruing immediately, even before any specific projects are uploaded.
CabinetHardware.org uses the power of the crowd to select projects to fund. Uploaded videos are displayed on site and need just 100 votes from CabinetHardware.org visitors to go forward to the grant stage. The best quality and most compelling stories will receive a feature spot on the website and on CabinetHardware.org’s social media channels to raise their visibility. All applicants will receive help from the grant team to promote their videos and draw attention to their cause.
Mason added, “We are passionate about helping a multitude of projects and are looking forward to being able to make a difference to those who need a hand with rebuilding. We know that there are so many compelling stories and deserving projects out there. It’s part of our mission to provide support and tips to help those in need tap into our website community to get votes and ultimately grant dollars.”
Built on the principle that it is possible to do more without spending more, CabinetHardware.org has created a unique business model which drives donations from each and every sale it makes. The site stocks over 40,000 cabinet hardware essentials from knobs and pulls to hinges and latches, all sold at the lowest prices allowed by the manufacturer. The retailer donates 10% of every purchase to its burgeoning relief fund. The fund is used to finance home improvement grants of between $1000 and $10,000.
Shoppers purchasing from CabinetHardware.org to improve their own homes are also invited to get in on the act by choosing the project they’d like to receive their contribution. When videos reach the donation stage and are open to donations, they have three months to achieve their funding target.
