"Paying for breast cancer treatment is one of the most common causes that leads people to start crowdfunding on YouCaring," explained Dan Saper, President of YouCaring.com. "During the first half of 2016, YouCaring helped raise over $1.9 million that went directly to individuals dealing with breast cancer."
Every day, YouCaring highlights how the power of community helps people navigate economic and health challenges. Organizers of fundraisers often become donors themselves, returning the generosity and compassion that sustained them.
Launched in 2011, YouCaring is a free crowdfunding platform that inspires community building through fundraising. By facilitating more than $450 million in donations from 5.5 million supporters, all without charging fees, YouCaring's business model proves that kindness is powerful and that even through life's most challenging circumstances people can overcome, heal, and thrive.
