HelpMeDonate.org began in the wake of 911. Shortly after, David Weiss, HMD’s Founder attempted to make a donation at the American Red Cross website. Unfortunately, their site was down due to too much traffic. David contacted the Tampa office of the American Red Cross and offered to accept donations on their behalf. Believing he might raise a few hundred dollars or so, they agreed. Shortly thereafter, David contacted Red Cross back and informed them that he had raised in excess of $1M. They were so pleased, that for the next ten years, they contacted David to raise money for them after each disaster, Japan and Chile Earthquake, Hurricane Katrina and Sandy, and many others.

In the wake of Hurricanes Irma, Matthew, and Maria,HMD collected donations and provided hundreds of generators and water filtration systems to the ravaged island in 2017. David Weiss, HelpMeDonate.org's Founder and President joined the FLIGHT OF HOPE on a mission to Puerto Rico. HelpMeDonate.org donated and brought hundreds of generators (set up as Charging Stations so that people could charge their phones and let family know they were ok), water filtration systems, medicine, nurses, medication, and doctors to Puerto Rico, shortly after the island was devastated. We also brought back to Florida over 40 of the very sick from Puerto Rico. The Flight of Hope comprised of many partners, all who assisted in the mission which was the largest private assistance provided to Puerto Rico after the storm.
