Why Even Viral-Fundraising Skeptics Can Feel Good About Donating to RAICES
"Across America, thousands of people are jailed every night, not because they’ve been convicted of any crime, but because they can’t find the bail money they need to be able to go back home and back to their jobs. Bail funds solve these problems at a stroke, but they almost never have enough money. When you give to a bail fund, your money doesn’t just get used to bail someone out once. It gets recycled with repayment, and used over and over again to help out the most neglected people in the justice system. That’s why I’m going to be happy to see RAICES raise as many millions of dollars as it possibly can. It’s that rarest of beasts: a viral fundraiser where the money is going to a deserving and urgent cause that can scale almost without limit."
