We're doing something new at Making it in America this year, and it's called Crowdfunding Friday! We're introducing you to people who are trying to raise money on the Internet to make their dreams come true!
Common uses of crowdfunding range from disaster relief to small time artists seeking support. But we found one we've never seen before!
Meet a guy who's using the online fundraising tool Indiegogo for a very unique purpose: He's trying to fund his way to the Super Bowl! Jackson Harris is a huge San Francisco 49ers fan, but he can't afford a ticket, or even the transportation costs, to the big game. So instead of slapping the expense on a credit card, Jackson is asking his fellow Americans and fellow football fans to chip in for the trip of a lifetime!
So far, Jackson has raised $0 of his $4,000 fundraising goal. But the good news is he still has more than a week to get some investors on board!
