YouCaring is working with J.J. Watt and the Houston Texans to support the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Watt, the Texans’ star defensive end, started the campaign on YouCaring.com Sunday with a personal contribution of $100,000. The fundraising effort quickly dwarfed its initial $200,000 goal and just four days after launch it surpassed $10 million. After an outpouring of support, it is only gaining more momentum and the amount donated is over $15 million across 140k donors, as of this writing. It is not only the single largest relief fundraiser for Hurricane Harvey victims, but also officially the largest and fastest-growing charitable crowdfunding campaign in the industry’s 10-year history. In addition to J.J. Watt’s campaign, YouCaring is now supporting over 1,000 active Hurricane Harvey relief fundraisers.
We are honored to have YouCaring part of the Alpine Investors’ family, and appreciate their dedication to helping people and organizations raise money in times of need.
