Crowd It Forward, a crowdfunding website owned and operated by the ClickStartMe Foundation, Inc. has created a crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for the victims of the tragic shooting at the Washington D.C. Navy Yards. Tax-deductible donations to help the survivors of the shooting, and the families of the deceased, can be made by visiting the website.

“This senseless act of violence at the Washington Navy Yard has tragically affected many lives,” said crowdfunding expert Kendall Almerico, founder of Crowd It Forward. “At Crowd It Forward, we want to do what we can to help the victims of this horrific shooting.”

Almerico says that Crowd It Forward has created a crowdfunding project that makes it easy for anyone to donate to help the survivors of the tragedy, and the families of those who were killed. “Any amount helps. No donation is too small, or too large,” Almerico says. “The great thing about crowdfunding is that a lot of small donations turns into a large amount of financial help for the victims and their families.”

Almerico notes that Crowd It Forward is operated by the ClickStartMe Foundation, a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization, which oversees distribution of the charitable funds that are raised through the crowdfunding site. Almerico notes that unlike many charities who have huge overhead expenses and keep a large percentage of donations to operate, Crowd It Forward guarantees that at least 90% of every dollar donated will be distributed directly to the victims of this tragedy and their families. “I have worked and represented charities and non-profits for years in my law practice, and I would not have started Crowd It Forward unless I could assure donors that their generous donations would get into the hands of those in need.”
