Tina Genick's insight:
STPH "can you spare some change" was thought up by a single mom struggling to come up with a way to help her son attend university. I spent hours, days, and weeks researching the crowdfunding platforms and read a ton of articles.

The old saying it takes a village to raise a child still stands true only “The village has become a community, and the community has become the world”. Help us help students realize their dreams can come true.
The money I raise here will assist in sending two featured students to university, marketing, building and maintaining website, social sites and for advertising costs in raising awareness. Our goal is $300,000.
