Trending on GoFundMe: Teenager Aspires to Interview All Living WWII Vets
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., November 10, 2016 -- Rishi Sharma, an 18-year-old from Agoura Hills, California, has started a GoFundMe campaign to help fund his dream to interview all living WWII veterans.
“My biggest heroes are the combat veterans of World War Two and I am on a mission to try and meet and in-depth film interview as many of these men before it is too late so that I can gain their knowledge and wisdom and also an appreciation for how good I have it,” said Sharma on his GoFundMe campaign page. “These men are my kindred spirits. I want them to know how grateful I am for they had to endure and I am trying to be an outlet for them to express their recollections and thoughts of their war days in a censor free environment.”
Sharma films the interviews and gives a DVD copy to the veterans. He is trying to do one interview a day and has deferred college to reach his goal.
