Toward the end of January I learned about Ken Green. He created a GoFundMe account to help raise money to get himself to RootsTech this year. He is a LDS Church Service Missionary living in Denver, Colorado. Here is information from his gofundme account:
His GoFundMe was shared 99 times and 18 people funded his account in just 11 days. He was looking for $500 and received $590. FamilySearch also stepped in and provided him access to RootsTech. I wanted to meet him and on the first day of RootsTech (Innovators Summit) I found him! Like first thing in the morning! Then proceeded to see him throughout the day! It was great to meet you Ken (Elder Green)!
