My fundraising campaign was my first ever attempt at crowdsourcing and the first time I had ever asked for individual donations for a creative project. I feared that asking the world outside of institutional support for help with my project would come across as the "Kristina Wong Panhandling Tour of 2011." The experience was quite the opposite.
What I didn't realize is that I had very generous fans where I least expected them. I activated creativity in my fundraising I didn't know was possible. The whole process rejuvenated my creative process and inspired me to move forward with what has been my most ambitious project yet.
