Homeless to Howard

James Ward became an Internet sensation for his “Homeless to Howard” Tumblr crowdfunding campaign. He used the site to help fund his college education at Howard University. Ward raised $12,000 from various donors, which is enough to cover his first-year expenses that aren’t covered by loans or grants.
