The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Empower the patient and affect positive change in everything we do.
Resilience Gives is a fundraising and crowdsupporting platform for people personally affected by chronic illness. We answer the question of "how can I help?" and then provide a platform for patients, survivors, and loved ones to raise money and pay it forward.
Imagine a platform like GoFundMe, except it’s a community of people who have "been there done that." So it’s about providing support to patients when they’re in the thick of treatment, and then helping them find purpose by raising money for something that has personally impacted them.
Because hospitals are notorious for those poorly made hospital socks, we base our fundraisers around custom socks. Patients/friends/family design custom socks and then the proceeds of sales are donated to various health charities.
