A charity called Watsi has notable Silicon Alley insiders reaching for their wallets.
Watsi is a global crowdfunding platform for healthcare that enables anyone to donate to directly fund life-changing medical care for people in need.
100% of every donation funds medical care and you can donate as little as $US5.
This year, Watsi became the first charitable company to raise over $US1 million in funding from traditional angel investors in Silicon Valley.
Paul Graham, who runs Y Combinator, is especially onboard with Watsi’s objective. He’s been non-stop tweeting about it:
