Kamloops named most generous city in Canada by GoFundMe

GoFundMe has named Kamloops the most generous city in the country.

The social fundraising platform crunched the numbers from across Canada and, per capita, Kamloops gave the most. The top five was rounded out by other B.C. towns: Chilliwack, Kelowna, Nanaimo and Victoria.

Locally, GoFundMe campaigns raised money for Parkcrest teachers after a fire destroyed the elementary school, a respiratory therapist who was paralyzed in a hunting accident and for the family of a woman injured in a car accident involving a moose. Just those three campaigns raised over $85,000.

Globally, Ireland topped the list for most generous nations, with Canada ranking fourth.

GoFundMe reports $9 billion has been raised through its platform since 2010, via 120 million donations.
