Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 18, 2013
Crowd It Forward has created on online fund for the victims of the tragic shooting at the Washington, D.C. Navy Yard. Tax-deductible donations to help the survivors of the shooting, and the families of the deceased, can be made by clicking here or by visiting http://www.CrowdItForward.com.
“When something terrible like this occurs, people often focus on the person who caused the tragedy rather than the victims whose lives were permanently affected," said crowdfunding expert Kendall Almerico, founder of Crowd It Forward. “At Crowd It Forward, we want to focus on the victims and their families and help them in any way we can.”
Crowd It Forward has created a crowdfunding web page that makes it easy to donate to help the survivors of the tragedy and the families of those who were killed. "No donation is too small or too large," Almerico says. "The great thing about crowdfunding is that a lot of small donations turn into a large amount of financial help for these people in need."
Crowd It Forward is operated by the ClickStartMe Foundation, a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization which oversees distribution of the charitable funds that are raised through the crowdfunding site. Almerico notes that unlike many charities who have huge overhead expenses and keep a large percentage of donations to operate, Crowd It Forward guarantees that at least 90% of every dollar donated will be distributed directly to the victims of this tragedy and their families. "I have worked and represented charities and non-profits for years in my law practice, and I would not have started Crowd It Forward unless I could assure donors that their generous donations would get into the hands of those in need."
Crowd It Forward also creates "Random Acts of Crowdfunding" to raise money for people who have inspiring stories or who perform random acts of kindness to others. All donations to crowdfunding projects on Crowd it Forward are tax deductible.
