    This is a great post about the crowdfunding industry and how things are moving to be free. I feel like Indiegogo just copied GoFundMe and is taking all the credit for doing personal campaigns. Most of the articles I read are saying Indiegogo vs Kickstarter when GoFundMe is helping the crowd raise more than both of those sites. Also I read that HeadFunder is free and they allow projects, causes and personal campaigns on there. Indiegogo is late to the party but they are definitely using their $40 Million round of funding wisely.
