#WebExtra: Crowd Funding for Mortgage Down Payment

Saving for a down payment on a home is harder than its ever been. What if you could get others to help crowdfund your down payment?  Today's young Americans are more social, more willing to share, but will they help each other buy homes? That is the bet one mortgage lender is banking on, as it launches a new program allowing potential home buyers to crowdfund their down payments. 
CMG financial, a mortgage lender, is launching homefundme, an online platform that gives home buyers a way to receive multiple, tax free, cash gifts from anyone to finance the down payment on a home.

The new trailer for "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" debuted during ESPN's "Monday Night Football." The official trailer focused on two new main characters of the series and also old favorites like Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker and Carrie Fisher's Princess Leia. The trailer includes shots of battles taking place on new planets and in space. It's garnered a big reaction on social media and racked up more than 300,000 views on YouTube in the first 30 minutes. The film is the 8th episode in the "Star Wars" saga and is a direct sequel to the 2015 blockbuster "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."
Tickets to "Last Jedi" which opens on December 15th went on sale following the debut.
