Pennies from Heaven

A crowd-funding website, Demohour, helps make dreams come true by helping entrepreneurs raise money, a hundred yuan at a time, Xu Jingxi reports in Guangzhou.

When He Feng was a mathematics freshman at Swarthmore College in the United States, a group of warm-hearted old people in the small town raised $1,000 for the Chinese stranger to pay for his first piano course, encouraging He’s interest in art.
