A new crowdfunding site with a social conscious has launched in New Brunswick, and its first project aims to help 26 low income families that lost their homes in a downtown Fredericton.

Launched by Toronto's Helix Commerce International, the new crowdfunding software and services offering is called CrowdFundChoice.ca. With sponsors that include RBC< TD Canada Trust and Community Action Group on Homelessness, the site's first campaign is called Next 26.

It's a charitable donation campaign with the goal of raising $50,000 to fund an affordable housing project to help those 26 families that lost their home to fire. The site has just launched and, so far, they've raised over $800 toward their goal. A video posted on the site helps make the pitch.
