Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) March 20, 2013
YourStreet, the online platform dedicated to linking investors and contributors to a wide range of ideas, projects and causes, is proud to feature the “Dreams of a Child, Future of a Champion” funding campaign. This campaign was established to support Bruno Carneiro, a talented 13 year-old kart racer who has been involved in the sport since the age of five. In the space of his career, Bruno has finished in the top 10 in karting championships in the US, Brazil and Italy. Outside of the track, Bruno is an honor roll student who speaks two languages and is learning two more.
Kart racing is Bruno’s passion, but the costs associated with competing are more than his family can provide. Bruno has fundraised door-to-door and provided coaching lessons to new drivers in order to support his career, but is looking for additional help in the form of funding from YourStreet members to help him continue to pursue his dreams.
“We are so proud to be sponsoring Bruno’s campaign on our site,” said YourStreet Founder Ryan Greene. “He’s a remarkable young man who impresses everyone he meets with his talent and maturity. This campaign is a perfect example of the difference people can make in someone’s life with even a $10 pledge. And if Bruno’s campaign doesn’t reach its funding target, he will still be able to keep the money that has been pledged to him.”
As of March 15, the “Dreams of a Child, Future of a Champion” campaign has raised nearly 20% of its $25,000 goal, with support from nearly 50 backers. The campaign runs until April 27.
