With just ten days left to go until deadline, Tracy Jackson, the founder of iCelebrateDiversity.com is almost half way to raising her target of $10,000. That's the amount she needs to manufacture one of her products, Diversity Jellybeans, candies that help stop stereotyping.
The company’s supplier recently went out of business leaving Jackson with a problem. She has to turn away orders because she doesn’t have enough capital to meet the manufacturer’s 10,000 pound minimum for custom jellybeans. So she looked to the crowdfunding site Indiegogo.com to raise the funds.
