“The Jim Bohannon Show is a weekday program heard on more than 500 station from coast-to-coast.” crowd-funding expert Kendall Almerico said. “We talked about Crowd it Forward, and Random Acts of Crowdfunding for those in need and our current projects: Shoes for Semper Fi and Fearce Determination.”
On the program, crowd funding expert Kendall Almerico discussed Shoes for Semper Fi, a touching story about a young boy running a 5K race who fell behind and was helped to the finish line by U.S. Marine Lance Corporal Myles Kerr. This crowdfunding project on Crowd It Forward is raising funds for Corporal Kerr to send him to a 5K race of his choice and to purchase a pair of running shoes for him and all returning U.S. Marines, as a reward for the Marine’s kind act to the young boy in the race.
Almerico and Bohannon also discussed Fearce Determination, a Random Act of Crowdfunding” inspired by Chelesa Fearce, a young lady who despite being homeless for several years, became the valedictorian of her high school class and is headed to college.
