Thank you, it is an honor to be in the top 10. This has been an inspiring and enlightening experience and I look forward to building on the idea framework developed here. Big thanks to community prototyper Pearl and the entire OpenIDEO community for their assistance and feedback.
I like this concept because it reduces the burden on the family to manage a fundraising campaign and has elements in place to prevent abuse or fraud. While GoFundMe and the like have been successful models, there are occasional reports of one family member taking off with all of the funds or refusing to share the funds with the family as intended.
Thanks Jim for taking time to flesh out this idea. Steady, continuous funding is absolutely essential to make most of these brainstorming ideas a reality and a success.
