A new survey of online fundraising has documented ten of America’s most compassion cities based on total donations raised per 100,000 households.
Online fundraisers, through sites like GoFundMe and YouCaring, have given people an easy way to make compassion a priority and address such issues as poverty, hunger, natural disasters.
Next on the list were Salt Lake City, followed by Seattle; Midland, TX; Charleston; Pittsburgh; Orlando; Denver; and Miami.
Topping the list in 2015 were Irving, Texas; Henderson, Nev.; and Orlando, Fla.
“A crowdfunding campaign’s location is extremely important to its success,” explained Dan Saper, President of YouCaring. “Successful campaigns are organized by members of a closely-knit community.”
