CaringCrowd knows that progress takes generosity, collaboration, and commitment. That's why Johnson & Johnson is matching donations - up to $250 per person, per project, up to the funding goal and until we reach the $800,000 cap! All active projects are eligible for matched donations, so the benefits can be widespread.
