SMALL BUSINESS – Natural Resources
My sister became a mother with the help and guidance of the caring folks of Natural Resources. The economic downturn shouldn't be the reason Natural Resources goes away… it's a vital resource for expecting and new mothers!
THEATRE – The Nutcracker
These are some of my greatest friends in Chicago and a theatre company I (and Eric Schell, too!) used to work for. This show is absolutely magnificent and a Nutcracker like no other you will ever see. Since 2007 it always gives me goosebumps when I see it – just seeing this campaign on IndieGoGo made me smile.
MUSIC – San Franciso Renegades
How cool to support a non-profit all-ages drum line!
Jeff/Senior Rails Developer
DESIGN – Ocean Architecture
There are multiple patches of garbage in our oceans. This campaign is working towards a solution to not only reuse the garbage, but to rebuild eroding coastlines and restore dying coral reefs.

Run by Hope M’kunte, a radio show host/blogger/Zambian music promoter, this campaign aims to help jobless youths set up their own barbershop businesses to improve their lives. He wants to open 20 barbershops to help 60 individual youths. So cool to see IndieGoGo pop up in far away nations!
COMMUNITY – Bonfire Books
A worker-owned and self-managed collective is trying to start a cafe, bookstore, and all-ages show space in Santa Barbara.
SMALL BUSINESS – Get the Can Van Rolling
Bringing craft beers to the world one can at a time! Shout-out to Kate and Lindsey for coming to our SF meet-up.

SMALL BUSINESS: Ellie Fun Day – Baby Blankets that change lives!
Great campaign and an incredible website they have created. Buy baby blankets to change the world!
MUSIC – Margot MacDonald & the Audio Conundrum
Margot is a great musician, and maybe an even better marketer — love the song sponsorship idea (and the really specific explanation of how to contribute at the bottom of the page).
