If a friend, family member or loved one has been affected by Hurricanes Harvey or Irma, feel empowered to take action and help.
You can create a campaign for supplies, emergency living arrangements, medical help, repairs or miscellaneous costs. Get started right here. Check out this link for inspirational campaigns that have already been created for hurricane victims.
Once the campaign is up and running, you can add your friend or family member as the beneficiary so that they can withdraw the funds directly. Find out how to do this here.
If your beneficiary is out of power or does not have immediate access to a computer or phone to process a withdrawal, you can withdraw on their behalf. Before doing so, please be sure to include these important details on your campaign:
- How you are related to the beneficiary
- That you will be withdrawing the funds in your name and to your own bank account
- How exactly you will be delivering the funds to the beneficiary
Do not have the time or resources to create a campaign? Donate or share the Direct Impact Fund for Hurricane Harvey. The Direct Impact Fund is an independent, registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organisation working directly with GoFundMe to provide immediate and direct assistance to those affected by natural and manmade disasters. Donations to the Direct Impact Fund are tax-deductible.
