One of the major issues with “charity” crowdfunding is trying to determine whether the money you are sending will be responsibly delivered to the victims of the crisis.
The Washington Post reports that the crowdfunding campaign for the Orlando shooting victims was set up by Equality Florida, the state’s largest LGBT rights group, which is aiming to collect $2 million for victims and their families. They are working with the National Center for Victims of Crime, which deployed funds in both the Chattanooga and Aurora shootings, to distribute the contributions from our Pulse Victim Fund
As of now, they have raised $3,274,062 from 73,711 people in 2 days. Probably don’t have to worry about the funds going to people in need.
