What is the purpose of this site?

The SaveStation Crowdfunding Program is an initiative that allows individuals to place SaveStations around their neighbourhoods to make a positive impact by increasing and enabling access to life-saving AEDs. This initiative was developed to help anyone in a community start a fundraising campaign. The SaveStation platform provides the social sharing tools to help spread the word and ultimately tracks and manages all the donations raised during the campaign.
