Wemadeamillionaire.com launched on July 28 with one goal — get strangers on the Internet to make another stranger a millionaire within 90 days.
“You don’t know who I am, where I am from, or how I’m going to spend your money,” says the millionaire hopeful in the website’s video.
Word has just started to get around and donations are already nearing $US12,000 to date.
In order to reach its goal, the site needs to earn over $US11,000 every day until its October 25th deadline.
The project is described as a social experiment: The mystery person behind it will document the next year of his or her life if the goal of $US1 million is met.
There are three different levels of donating: gold ($US9.99), silver ($US4.99), and bronze ($US1.29). All that’s offered in return is a photo and custom message on one of the site’s “walls of fame.”
The website doesn’t state whether “donations” (not pledges) will be returned if the project fails to meet $US1 million in 90 days.
