Friends of Kevin created a GoFundme page https://www.gofundme.com/KevinStamperSpeaker because the District can only afford awards winners with airfare, not entrance fees in to the World Conference, which costs 575 dollars. They also don’t provide hotel accommodations, food allowance, or car allowance, a grand total would amount to 1,800 dollars. So a close friend created the “Friends of Kevin” GoFundMe page to raise about two thousand dollars so Kevin can cover all the expenses of entering the competition. “I know Kevin will win if we lessen his stress,” said Joe Camerieri, close friend.
