The ClickStartMe Foundation has launched Crowd It Forward, a crowdfunding site organization that accepts tax deductible donations and creates “Random Acts of Crowdfunding” for those in need. Crowd It Forward is a noto for profit company 501(c)(3) that will accept tax deductible donations for those who deserve it.
“We are excited to extend the ClickStartMe brand with Crowd It Forward,” founder and crowdfunding expert Kendall Almerico said. “With our Random Acts of Crowdfunding, we can find people who need or deserve something good to happen to them, and we can make it happen through crowd funding.”
The new platform launched with two initial offerings, the first involves raising funds for U.S. Marine Lance Corporal Myles Kerr, whose recent viral story touched the hearts of millions as he helped a nine year-old boy find his lost companions while running a 5K race. The second Random Act of Crowdfunding involves Chelesa Fearce, an inspiring young woman who graduated as her high school’s valedictorian despite being homeless.
“Launching Crowd It Forward by helping LCpl Kerr and Chelesa Fearce truly illustrates what we are all about,” founder and crowd funding expert Kendall Almerico said. “We want to spread the word about positive news stories, and also to reward those who deserve to be rewarded, but would never ask for it themselves.”
