It’s so great to see neighbors and businesses coming together to pull through the blackout from Hurricane Sandy. The spirit of the Lower East Side is unbreakable, and establishments are opening despite a loss of power. But the damage is unavoidable, both in physical and monetary terms. Regarding the latter, crowdfunding website Lucky Ant has decided to pitch in to help with the recovery.
Starting now, Lucky Ant is waiving fees for any business that uses the site to raise funds for cleanup. From the Boogie mailbag:
Like everyone, we have been huddled up watching the news for the past two days. Thankfully, the worst has now come and gone and it is time for us to all come together and help rebuild.
It is with that sentiment in mind that Lucky Ant has decided to waive our fee and host any business that needs help crowdfunding their recovery. Any business that suffered damage and needs help rebuilding is eligible.
Lucky Ant has been raising funds for small businesses for 9 months and we have so far helped our clients fund $125,000+ in projects in New York and Philadelphia.
Any business that is interested in using our service should email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to have them up on the site as soon as possible.
Please note that our site is currently down because our servers in Brooklyn were flooded, but we are able to receive projects in the meantime and will be operational again in the next 24hours.
