Priyanka commented on Piggyback

GoFundMe is certainly a crowdfunding platform for personal endeavors. The difference is that in addition to funders backing a young person's career path with finance, they could also opt to provide connections/introductions to a useful contact in industry, mentorship, micro-internships etc etc, based on what the young person has requested help with securing to make their career goals a reality. The methods of sponsorship are thus framed around filling gaps in the young person's career plan.
Hope that clarifies!
Cheers,
Priya
