NEW YORK, Nov.9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Firerock Capital has teamed up with the premier crowd funding website, Click2cause.com (www.click2cause.com) and will be paying all fees associated with transactions on the fundraising site in order to raise awareness and trigger response for those already suffering from Hurricane Sandy. The winter storm has made living conditions worse for those already without power and basic living supplies.
Founder Christopher DesRoches is urging people to create a personal cause on the site and request help for themselves or a loved one as soon as possible. Click2cause can help raise awareness for the local need, as well as raise funds to get supplies to people as fast as possible. Those already without heat, water, food or shelter will be faced with many more difficulties due to the snowstorm. By starting a fundraiser with Click2cause, victims can harness the power of a crowd ¨C by raising small amounts of money from larger groups of people.
With temperatures falling through the night, increased wind gusts, and over 600,000 people still without power in the Northeast (weather.com), there is an emergency need to get people supplies and food.
The partners at FireRock Capital are encouraging people to seek help as soon as possible, "We are going to cover fees on up to $10 million dollars of donations, so that people can be connected with the funds they seek to get through this difficult time".
In addition to raising funds for this storm, click2cause has an emergency fundraiser on the
site for those affected by Hurricane Sandy. Click 2 Help Hurricane Sandy Victims.
Click2Cause founder and crowd funding expert, Christopher DesRoches, hopes that people who seek to help others, once they see how easy it is to donate, will also go ahead and set up a cause to raise funds for a neighbor, friend or family member who may now be without a home or other basic needs. Crowd funding makes it easier than ever to make a difference for a loved one by raising small amounts of money, which in turn becomes a large amount... through the "crowd."
