A local mother is trying a new idea called crowd funding to raise money for her daughter to ice skate at Regionals.
To help her daughter get to the regionals, Kate researched this new idea called crowd funding. Basically by using social networking sites and special software she is sharing Michelle's story online with friends and strangers. The point is for people to see it and connect it to other people's social networking sites and draw in donations. A stranger from China donated when he saw the story on a Chinese blog.
