On Wednesday, we set new records for visitors and money raised for our users! In just one day you brought in 87,000 supporters and raised $181,841 for your fundraisers.
And, as always at YouCaring, with no fees charged and every dollar going to those who need it.
We’re so glad to see these new records, and we hope that our users continue to smash records as you raise money for the causes you believe in.
Since February, we have nearly doubled our traffic to more than 1 million visitors in April.
Site founder Brock Ketcher believes the growth is due to an important feature of the site that sets YouCaring apart from any other online fundraising website.
“When people fall on hard times, other people are always looking for ways to lend a helping hand,” Ketcher said. “And YouCaring.com is the first truly free way to raise money online. Every dollar our users raise from friends and family is able to go to their medical expenses, vet bills or memorial fund.”
As our users know, YouCaring does not take a percentage of donations to cover its costs like the other sites out there, but instead relies on the generosity of donors to support the site along with the cause they’ve chosen to fund.
Our users make all the difference, and we are happy to provide a place where more people can raise the money the need for any cause that they believe in.
We hope that we can continue to help our fundraisers break records every day from here forward. Thanks everyone for your support!
