This deal focus is not really focusing on a single deal today. With the tragedy of Hurricane Sandy dominating the news, this catastrophe was too great to ignore. Unless you are in isolation you have seen the overwhelming photos of the damage the Hurricane has caused.
Soon after the most violent winds passed the twitter sphere was loaded with almost real time photos of submerged cars and floating houses. Most of my family and friends have been fortunate in dodging the most extreme damage or loss. Everyone has had trees ripped from the ground and many have lost power for days to come. These are frustrating inconveniences which are soon forgotten. But many of the less fortunate have lost more than power. They have lost homes, livelihoods and some have lost the lives of loved ones.
There are many Crowdfunding campaigns to aid these victims. The communal loss is simply too grand to focus on a single deal. Believe me there are some very compelling stories being told right now on funding platforms. So the Deal Focus today is for a Deal Section on GoFundMe. The team at GoFundMe have created and entire section of people raising funds to help their neighbors, friends and themselves.
I counted 56 current campaigns on GoFundMe today. Finding that 3rd person for your commute to qualify for the HOV restrictions is a pain. Probably a bigger pain for some more than others. But if you want to see some real stories of struggle in the aftermath of Sandy – check out the GoFundMe page now.
