New Story Charity (YC S15) Rings the NASDAQ Opening Bell

New Story, the nonprofit that recently launched out of our Summer 2015 class that crowdfunds the building of new homes for families in need, rang the opening bell at the NASDAQ stock exchange in New York City last week -- marking a big milestone for the company, and a first for a YC nonprofit. 

The ringing of the opening bell on September 8 coincided with the last day of New Story's 100 Homes in 100 Days campaign, which ended with a total of 103 homes being funded for families left homeless by the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. New Story's aim is to change the status quo of traditional charities, with a fully transparent platform that lets donors see that their funds are being used to help the people who need aid.

Congratulations to New Story founders Brett Hagler, Matthew Marshall, Alexandria Lafci, and the rest of the team!
