IRVING, Texas – Conference USA will utilize YouCaring, a free crowdfunding platform designed to help raise funds for medical and charitable causes, to assist those affected by Hurricane Harvey.
Supporters can go to http://www.YouCaring.com/CUSAcares to donate. No amount is too small.
Please use the #CUSAcares hashtag on all your social media platforms to support the relief efforts.
C-USA also partnered with Rice football head coach David Bailiff to shoot a PSA addressing the situation in the Houston area. The PSA will air at C-USA home events over the next several weeks.
YouCaring was founded in 2011 by Brock Ketcher, Naomi Ketcher and Luke Miner in Redding, Calif., when they returned from two years of international mission trips. Deeply inspired by their experiences abroad, the three resolved to continue helping others when they arrived home. This resolution became YouCaring, a free crowdfunding platform designed to help fellow students fundraise for tuition and other costs.
Within months, word of the site spread and thousands of people began raising money for medical fundraisers and other charitable causes. Since then, YouCaring has grown to become the leader in free online fundraising, having raised more than $400 million in support of individuals, families, communities and nonprofits looking to save lives, remember loved ones, recover from disasters, fund humanitarian efforts and much more.
