More than three years after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, aided by a grassroots effort, the New York-based Relief Fund for a Los Angeles Family charity is nearing the one-million-dollar mark in its annual fundraising campaign to help families of the victims.

The $19.9 million generated to date — nearly $10 million of which came from a single donor — will go to as many as 80 families, organizers said. The members of the first family to find out a cause was picked to receive a grant had been making their own arrangements to find a doctor or other professional for the children’s treatment.

The centerpiece of the show is the Crowdfunding Project at the New York Public Library, a poster published in the New York Times asking the public to help raise $2 million for the museum’s two educational programs. As of Wednesday, $885,000 had been donated to the Kickstarter project.

Bob Beasley, head of the family charity, said the donations for the crowdfunder came from people giving entirely out of the goodness of their hearts.
