Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 19, 2015
Lotsa Helping Hands, the nation’s leading provider of online volunteer and caregiving coordination for families in need, and YouCaring, the global leader in free online fundraising, today announced a new partnership. The collaboration focuses on Compassionate Crowdfunding™, empowering people to help others overcome hardships and enjoy happier, healthier lives.
Lotsa Helping Hands will work together with YouCaring to provide organizational tools, information and a platform for those seeking to help loved ones in need. YouCaring users will now have access to Lotsa Helping Hands’ Care Calendar, a free, personalized online tool that allows caregivers to post requests for support and organize their network of family and friends beyond crowdfunding.
“Supporting caregivers is about providing the tools and services to make their lives easier, and our goal is to create a world where everyone can give and receive help through the power of community,” said Matt McCabe, General Manager for Lotsa Helping Hands. “This partnership will provide our members with proven tools to raise money and help offset costs associated with medical care.”
“We are proud to partner with Lotsa Helping Hands to help caregivers find the resources, support and community they need,” said Dan Saper, Vice President of Strategic Partnerships at YouCaring. “Crowdfunding is a seamless extension of what Lotsa Helping Hands offers through its caregiving portal, and we’re excited to be able to serve its community.”
By providing new resources to families in need, both organizations aim to reduce the emotional and financial burdens that more than 65 million people experience while providing care for a chronically ill, disabled or aged family member or friend.
