Team Indiegogo’s Campaign Roundup (2/15/13)


Every week, we give team members at Indiegogo an opportunity to talk about the campaigns that have caught their attention. Here’s what we were talking about this week:


teamArie The teamArie truck

Location: Phoenix, Arizona

This campaign is a great way to race with Arie from afar!


imba imba means sing

Location: Atlanta, Georgia

“There is an education crisis in our world today and the kids in the African Children’s Choir are a beautiful, compelling and entertaining example of how to solve the issues of extreme poverty through education while also sharing the hope, dignity and unlimited potential of Africa’s children with our world.”


AdoptAReader Adopt-a-Reader, a Teacher, a Library!

Location: San Francisco de Macoris, Dominican Republic

They have done fantastic research on their community to determine the need and interest in having a community library.  And their perks are awesome.  What a great idea to have a Surprise perk for the adventurous contributor 🙂


Coatwolf Coatwolf Productions – Blasting a Hole Through The Fabric of Your Internet!

Location: Ventura, California

Mohawks, jean jackets, brass Knuckles and explosions…what else could a guy ask for?  Checkout this a$$ kicking campaign by the genius’ that brought us the indie film sensation Bellflower.


RaspberryPi Raspberry Pi Case by Green Inking

Location: Cambridge, Canada

The Raspberry Pi is a $35 credit-card size computer that’s taking the hacker and educational market by storm. It is a bare board computer, however, so a case is useful once you’re beyond the prototyping stage. Not only is this case competitive in price, it’s made from compostable plastic – environmentally sound hacking!


Shoes Shoes: A Short Film

Location: Toronto, Canada

This is such an interesting idea for a film, and the campaign owner is even willing to learn how to tap dance in return for contributions!


EpiInject Epi Inject – Make it Easy to Administer Life Saving Treatment for Food Allergies

Location: San Francisco, California

My sisters had to carry around EpiPens for their allergies so I think the Epiinject concept is really interesting. I also like that you get to help a young designer get a patent for her award-winning design.


ActualSunlight Actual Sunlight – Interactive Story

Location: Toronto, Canada

An outstanding indie game that I am stoked to see completed. It is so much more than what a traditional game is and truly shows what art form of a game can be.


JonnyCraig Jonny Craig’s new EP

Location: Sacramento, California

Jonny Craig, a controversial and rare talent who has overcome some major adversities and is about to come out the gate strong with a hot new record.


Kai Get Kai the Hatchet Hero a new surfboard and wetsuit.

Location: California

Who wouldn’t want to help Kai out? He seems like he’s got a good heart and it’s the first time the general community is happy about a hitchhiker with a hatchet.


RaggedEnsembleYouth Scholarship Campaign for the Ragged Wing Youth Ensemble 2012-2013

Location: Oakland, California

Claim a perk for tickets to one of their performaces and help the Ragged Wing Young Ensemble scholarship fund to allow talented low-income youth to join in an awesome theater group!


MedicalCostsforPam Plasma Cell Leukemia Medical Costs for Pam

Location: San Jose, California

Having lost my father late last year to the same terrible disease, this year I want to help someone DIRECTLY with their battle. I’ve decided to help Pam.


PelicanAviary The Pelican Aviary Project

Location: San Francisco Bay Area, California

International Bird Rescue is a great organization that helps rehabilitate sick and injured birds. Adopt a seabird for $25!
