Lotsa Helping Hands, a provider of online volunteer and caregiving coordination for families in need, has teamed up with crowdfunding platform, YouCaring, to introduce “compassionate crowdfunding,” which empowers people to help others overcome hardships and enjoy happier, healthier lives.
The Chicago-based care coordination app company will work with YouCaring to provide organizational tools, information and a platform for those seeking to help loved ones in need. YouCaring users will now have access to Lotsa Helping Hands’ Care Calendar, a free, personalized online tool that allows caregivers to post requests for support and organize their network of family and friends beyond crowdfunding.
Matt McCabe, General Manager for Lotsa Helping Hands, stated:
“Supporting caregivers is about providing the tools and services to make their lives easier, and our goal is to create a world where everyone can give and receive help through the power of community. This partnership will provide our members with proven tools to raise money and help offset costs associated with medical care.”
Dan Saper, Vice President of Strategic Partnerships at YouCaring, added:
“We are proud to partner with Lotsa Helping Hands to help caregivers find the resources, support and community they need. Crowdfunding is a seamless extension of what Lotsa Helping Hands offers through its caregiving portal, and we’re excited to be able to serve its community.”
By providing new resources to families in need, both organizations aim to reduce the emotional and financial burdens that more than 65 million people experience while providing care for a chronically ill, disabled or aged family member or friend.
