Helping Victims Get Back on Their Feet
Natural disasters cause immediate and long-term needs for victims left without homes and livelihoods. From one fire in Northern California, the occupants of about 9,700 homes are in temporary housing.

It's natural to want to help families who've lost all their possession, but from across the country or the world, it can be hard to figure out how to have the maximum direct impact.

Avoiding Fraudulent Need Claims
With the proliferation of online donor request sites and giving through social media platforms, the potential for fraud or being taken in by a sympathetic story is a true concern.

That's exactly what happened recently in Southern California, where a woman falsely claimed to be soliciting donations on Facebook to bring to first responders—it turned out she didn't even have a fire-fighter husband, and the $11,000 in donations she had collected were sitting in her garage. This story illustrates the importance of having some verification process in place, which would have brought about questions on the intended recipients, real victims of the Holy Fire.
Direct Peer-to-Peer Aid Makes a Difference
Make a big impact by donating a care kit to a family impacted by the fires in California or severe snow storms in the Mid-Atlantic through BitClave's anonymous and secure peer-to-peer donor matching service.

There's something truly meaningful about assembling the items a victim needs that a donation through your browser doesn't satisfy. Importantly, the donor matching service keeps you entirely anonymous. You can also feel safe sharing your email address for your match notification; we pledge to keep your information entirely secure and never share it, even with your matched recipient.
