SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--FundCru, Inc., a new and innovative fundraising technology, is providing a unique blockchain-powered cryptocurrency solution for fundraising in the aftermath of the massive fires throughout California. FundCru is working in conjunction with restaurants, chefs, wineries via the ChefsGiving Campaign to quickly get money to Californians suffering from the effects of the recent devastating fires in California.
100% of the funds raised will be donated to The Tipping Point Emergency Relief Fund, which directly supports low-income communities affected by the devastating fires in the North Bay and Restaurants Care, an emergency assistance fund to support restaurant workers who are affected by the fires.
“With ChefsGiving, our goal is to raise funds for those in need of temporary and long-term housing throughout northern California. This is a 100% volunteer effort with zero overhead. Everyone can help. Together, we can make a huge impact. I hope everyone will join us in this important effort,” stated Mr. Duc Pham, founder and CEO of FundCru.
With the new FundCru technology donors will be able to use crypto-currencies to make gifts to those in need without paying any transaction fees. 100% of one’s gift will go directly to those in need. Of course, FundCru can also accept gifts via credit cards or PayPal.
"Today, we are launching our fundraising platform ahead of schedule because we felt compelled to help the California wildfire relief effort. Our very first charity crowdfunding campaign is partnering with ChefsGiving - an effort completely staffed by volunteers to benefit wildfire victims. Thanks to our engineering team who have been working around the clock, we are up and running and everyone is so excited to help support those who were devastated by the fires." - Patricia Suflita Wilson, FundCru Chief Marketing Officer.
FundCru is scheduled to launch its own ICO in early December but has broken away from its focus on that effort to help with the current challenges in our state.
