Budding entrepreneur Paul Crowell has chosen what might be the least likely of causes: his mission is to feed the dogs of San Francisco's homeless community. What started as one small act of kindness–feeding a hungry dog in his Mission neighborhood–soon became an obsession for him. And this month, crowdfunding site GoFundMe gave Crowell's organization a huge boost.

They chose Crowell's Project Open Paw out of thousands of campaigns, featuring Crowell as a "hero". This has helped him raise more than a hundred thousand dollars, enough to expand Project Open Paw across the Bay Area. You can read Crowell's heartwarming story and see the ABC7 interview here.
