Crowdfunding to make a Stranger a Millionaire has already raised $11,800 as part of a 90-day social experiment online said to be ‘like no other’. The experiment, launched on July 28, aims to make a ‘stranger’ on the internet stinking rich – a stranger who isn’t even revealing their name or details. They are completely anonymous. The only clue as to their identity is a video alongside the website where he (or possibly she?) asks for either a ‘gold ($9.99)’, ‘silver ($4.99)’ or ‘bronze ($1.29)’ donation. The clip is posted along with the tagline: ‘The collective power of the internet has the ability to make a complete stranger a millionaire. I am that stranger.’ For those crazy kind enough to donate, they get their picture on the ‘thank you’ wall of the website. The video talks through the concept, ending with: ‘Who knows. It could be crazy enough to work.’
