Saving the Blue Angels through the Power of Crowdfunding

Our team was amazed when we saw this fundraiser to save the Blue Angels pop up on our radar. Marc McCabe, a local San Franciscoan and Blue Angel fan, created a Crowdtilt fundraiser to raise at least $650,000 for the show, which would take place from Oct. 10-14 during San Francisco’s Fleet Week.

We’re honored and humbled to see our site used for such a creative and inspiring cause. Happy tilting! :)
