Micro-Crowdsourced Fundraising
This 'How to Build a School in 3 Hours' Video is Sure to Inspire

By: Bianca Bartz (Superstar) Jun 3, 11

When philanthropreneur Taylor Conroy—whose motto is “destroy normal”—wanted to get his friends involved in charity, he wasn’t going to go about it in any ordinary way. He conducted a series of experiments, merged them with his sales knowledge and applied his curiosity for the infinite potential of the Internet to create a platform to build a school in 3 hours.

His social fundraising platform, called Ten in Three, is designed to raise $10,000 in three hours by getting 33 people to donate $3.33 a day for three months. The funds would then go directly toward building a school with Free The Children.

The video above features Taylor’s Tedx talk, which goes over the details of his experiments and explains how anyone can build a school in 3 hours with their friends.

What makes this platform so innovative is the combo of leveraging traditional motivators behind giving with new knowledge and technology.  I hope you’ll be inspired to give too after watching the featured video and will join me in building a school!
