In light of the recent tragedy in Surfside, Florida, where a building collapsed, many are searching for ways to help victims and their families. As with any disaster donations, beware of scammers preying on those looking to help.

One of the most popular ways to help victims when disaster strikes is crowdfunding. Crowdfunding is the concept of receiving multiple smaller sums of money from a large group of people.
