Today on GoFundMe: Getting to Sundance

Each Thursday in December, Patch is highlighting an area fund-raising campaign.

Each Thursday in December, Patch is highlighting a local GoFundMe campaign in the area.

Today's focus is on "Sundance Bound," a page created by Rhonda Nicole Burnam, a creative writer trying to get to the Sundance Film Festival. Excerpts from the fund-raising page:

"During my journey I have written a few short stories, screenplays and stageplays. My ultimate goal is to write a screenplay that will be premiered at The Sundance Film Festival. Some of you probably have heard me say many times "I'm going to Sundance."
"Well, on October 31, 2013, I received one of many hopeful phone calls that will ignite my dreams to reality. A rep from Sundance Film Festival called regarding my application and that I'm a likely candidate to work the upcoming festival.

"The Sundance Film Festival is January 15-26, 2014 in Park City, Utah. This is a little over two months from now! After doing some research and crunching numbers it will cost approximately $3000 to make this trip."

Check out the GoFundMe page for further information.

Unlike other crowdfunding websites like Kickstarter, GoFundMe focuses more on helping people fund community or personal goals. GoFundMe is a Patch partner.
