Masterchef contestant Chris Turner went to his crowd of fans to help fund his Cordon Bleu fees with amazing success.
“The experience was fun, it really confirmed for me why I wanted to do what I am doing” says Turner “Crowdfunding is an awesome way of raising funds and creating awareness of your dreams!”
PledgeMe, New Zealand’s crowdfunding platform, was excited by this recent success. “We knew the need for crowdfunding extended beyond just pure art projects, and we’re really excited that Chris proved that point on PledgeMe!” says PledgeMe co-founder Anna Guenther.
