Thanks to KickStarter, we have raised $3000 through 20 different people’s donations within 30 days. Thank you to our community, who showed your support by spreading the word and helping us meet our fundraising goal!
You can see our the Floating Doctors’ Kickstarter page HERE: Kickstart Floating Doctors
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Kickstarter, it enables people with a project or a cause to post a fundraising goal to meet in a certain amount of time. People can “pledge” different amounts, for which they will receive something in return. The project is only funded if the fundraising goal is met. If it isn’t, the pledges are dropped and the supporters money is not accepted.
Floating Doctors was announced a Rotary International Cause and will be taken up by the Palm Coast Rotary Club. By becoming and International Cause, any Rotary Club can support Floating Doctors and have them be their club’s focus organization to help.
Clean the World, a non-profit organization who collects, recycles and distributes soap and shampoo products discarded by hotels, donated 800 lbs of soap to the Floating Doctors to take with them on their medical relief voyage. These bars of soap will be great to distrubute for hand-washing education and prevention in the medical clinics.
