    Great site... it is amazing how the smallest of donations to a project become part of a big change for another young person. we have raised donations on our website www.survivethestreets.org to get younger people back into school and finally learn in an environment that is comfortable and nourishing, keep up the great work. i will share this site.

      Thank you Patti for sharing. Looks like you're doing amazing work! Keep it up.

    I just checked out the site and think it's great that you're supporting the next generation of innovators. I also work in the crowdfunding industry (but equity side, not donation/rewards based) and think democratizing capital whether it's for young kids or startups is really exciting. It's called Return on Change and we focus on socially innovative startups, would love to hear your thoughts on it! www.returnonchange.com

      Hi Grace - I heard about your site from one of our partners Ashoka Youth venture. Sounds like you're doing awesome work too! Would love to keep in touch.

    I do my best to highlight crowdfunding projects on our guide to crowdsourcing creative progress, Push for Good, so I'll add you to our hub: http://www/good.is/push-for-good. Best of luck with this. How do you plan on reaching younger kids? Are you working with schools?

    • Andrea Lo

      Thanks so much Alessandra! That's great. We have several partners that work with young people, (you can see them here: www.piggybackr.com/challenge), existing users, and doing a general media push to reach students and their parents!

    I think this is a spot on concept! Thank you for starting your organization. During my career I have helped people see their purpose and that fire in their belly so they can make a difference. Getting the "kids" to see that they indeed have purpose is so essential to how they not only see themselves, but how they see and know they can make a difference. They do not have to be rocket scientists to innovate and create change. This is the Seth Godin tribe idea and you are doing it! Thank you! I would love to have a client like you. You have inspired me. Keep up the great heart and soul work. Peace.

        Of course. Thank you again for your fantastic work. You have something going here. Peace.
