GoFundMe for World Series tickets? Why not

The World Series may be tied at one game a piece, but so far, Chicago Cubs fans have edged out Cleveland Indians fans in leveraging human kindness to fund a trip to the historic baseball series, according to GoFundMe.

Through Friday, over 100 GoFundMe campaigns had raised over $100,000 to purchase World Series tickets.

The merit of each campaign, on a site that seeks crowd-funded altruism to pay for anything from pet rescue to cancer treatment to funeral bills to class field trips, is up to the donors to decide.
