This fundraising page was created by BuzzFeed, a digital media company made up of BuzzFeed Entertainment, BuzzFeed News, HuffPost, Tasty and more.
In response to the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan, members of our community -- including a number of employees with personal ties and family in Afghanistan -- have called on the BuzzFeed team to lend our platform and voice to support relief efforts to those most in need. Now more than ever, it is critical that we join forces with our audience to raise awareness and donations for community-led organizations that are on the ground helping to provide relief.
Collectively, we can make a difference. We hope to make the biggest impact possible by creating this central fund to support a variety of organizations providing basic necessities, education, and protection to displaced and at-risk Afghans and journalists. Our commitment is to leverage our platform and reach to help fuel these organizations with the resources to continue their incredible work. Every dollar counts.
Donations made to this fundraiser will be managed by GoFundMe.org, a 501(c)3 public charity, which will be providing grants to vetted nonprofit organizations providing crucial humanitarian aid to those impacted by this crisis.
Thank you for your contributions, please share this page with your network to help continue to spread the word.
GoFundMe.org is a 501(c)(3) public charity (EIN 81-2279757). Its mission is to provide fast and effective relief to victims of disaster, and to fund education and other charitable initiatives. In its first 5 years of operation, GoFundMe.org raised over $140 million, for distribution to vetted nonprofit organizations serving the same mission, and to verified individuals who are part of the charitable class. GoFundMe.org eliminates the paradox of choice for donors by providing one centralized place to give, knowing that those dollars are efficiently dispersed to the right organizations and people. Donations to this fund are tax-deductible to the extent permissible by law.
