A few words on Charitocracy
Firstly, for newcomers: here's how it works. Donors pool their monthly contributions, as little as $1. The cause with the most votes each month wins the pot. No matter how much or how little you contribute, each donor at Charitocracy gets one vote. This is where charity meets democracy. So please share this post (scroll down for social sharing icons) and ask your friends to join us and vote! That's how we spread the word and, as a result, grow the monthly pot. The bigger the pot, the bigger our positive impact on the world!
About nominee Dorian Relief @ Red Cross
Hurricane Dorian carved a path of devastation in the Bahamas, leaving behind catastrophic damage and affecting an estimated 76,000 people and more than 13,000 homes.
As the storm continues to move along the U.S. coast, pummeling communities with high storm surge, rain, and tornado threats, the American Red Cross is there to provide food, shelter, comfort, and hope.
Hurricane Dorian Response
More than 2,500 Red Cross disaster responders from across the country have worked with kindness and compassion to support people in threatened communities across Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina. In preparation for this powerful storm, 110 emergency response vehicles and 104 tractor-trailer loads full of relief supplies, including cots, blankets, and 63,000 ready-to-eat meals, were mobilized near evacuation centers and at-risk communities.
