When one of our own does something that we think is pretty ‘bad’, we tend to want to write about it and spread the love.  Well, we have something very cool to share today.

Meet Brandon Desiderio, our special projects intern from Cabrini College in Radnor, Pa.  Brandon is hoping to take on a once in a lifetime opportunity, a chance to work alongside professional journalists in Israel.

The Problem

Brandon is a college student and studying IN Israel apparently costs much more than simply reading updates from the top journalists in the Middle East.

An eager brain can only do much on a thin wallet.

The Solution = Crowdfunding

Using his super sexy social media knowledge, a few tools, and his network of friends and family, Brandon has ignited a crowdfunding campaign.  Go ahead and click that link, or wait till the end.

The kid is super crafty and has built an interesting campaign using fundmytravel.com.  The campaign lists out his reasons for wanting to go, the actual job he’ll be taking on, and of course, the financial breakdown.  We’re not the only ones that found this to be mega awesome.

How can you help?

For starters, if you believe in the campaign and students hoping to attain their goals, then please, drop by his campaign and leave a buck, or two, or more.  He’ll greatly appreciate it.

How else can you help?

  • Share this blog post or Brandon’s campaign on your Facebook wall, tweet it, post it on Linkedin, or blast it anywhere else you can think of.
  • Write your own blog post about Brandon’s crowdfunding journey.
Thanks, and please help our Bad Rhino intern get to Israel!
