Is GoFundMe good for raising money?

Episode 1306 (2:13:56)

Kevin from Los Angeles, CA

Kevin is going to be studying film abroad for his senior year in college. He needs to raise funds to travel to Great Britain for school. He's thinking of starting a GoFundMe campaign and using crowdfunding to do it. Leo says why not? Surely there are people who would chip in to get Kevin there. He shouldn't expect strangers to chip in, but friends and family, and maybe friends of friends would do it. GoFundMe will take a piece of the pie though, so he should factor that in on his goal.
