Many of our crowdfunding campaigners are college students, juggling their academics, jobs, social lives, extracurricular activities, and sleep. In the midst of what is almost certainly the busiest time of their lives, some of them also made the choice to crowdfund for the causes, projects, and initiatives that changed their lives and the lives of others.
And this month, many of these leaders are graduating, leaving a legacy of courage and connection in their wake.
So, as graduation season comes to an end, we want to thank each of you for sparking a movement - for your organization, on your campus, and for our future. Thank you for stepping into the unknown with a team of equally uncertain leaders and saying, "We're going to make this happen."
The world today is different because of that decision.
You shared compelling stories in a way that connected a community. You gave others an outlet to make a change (and it made them feel great). You learned a lot about leadership and working with a team - in good times and challenging times - which you'll certainly use in any avenue you pursue.
As you move into the direction of your dreams, we wish you more opportunities to become the trailblazer you have proven to be. Keep innovating, keep leading, keep being wholly you.
