James Franco is looking to fans for financial help to adapt his series of short stories from his first book, Palo Alto, inspired by high school events. In his campaign video, James asks for contributions and says crowdsourcing is "the best way to make movies." He has raised just over $25,000 toward the project's $500,000 goal and contributions will run until July 17. What sets James's crowdfunding apart from the rest is that all of the profits from the project will go to The Art of Elysium, a nonprofit organization James works with that provides creative outlets for hospitalized children suffering from serious medical conditions.
