Thank You, New York
We asked 1,021 New Yorkers to describe themselves, and only 1% of them said “kind,” but we know the truth.
Between January 1, 2020, and March 31, 2021:
- Every 30 seconds, a New Yorker donated to a GoFundMe
- New Yorkers donated nearly $150M
- 1 in 3 GoFundMes started by New Yorkers were for someone other than themselves
We want to say thank you for choosing to be kind when others needed it most.
