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:

HelenJean HelenJean: Custom Dresses for Game Changing Women

Location: Vancouver, Canada

Rather than sizes, the tags on these dresses share how you want to feel while you’re wearing them.  Strong?  Beautiful?  You got it!

Wireman Wireman Comics Literacy Project

Location: Grand Rapids, Michigan

The Wireman Comics campaign is raising funds for volume 3 of the popular and effective comic book literacy tool that hooks at-risk readers on a compelling story they can’t put down as opposed to strengthening their skills through drills and exercises. Check it out!

DreamBigAcademy The Dream Big Academy: Rosie Wants to be a Fireman

Location: Hoboken, New Jersey

This campaign, run by a neighbor of mine, is inspiring to me both as a parent who is helping my own children dream big, but also from watching my neighbor take a leap of faith and put herself out there in order to realize her own dream of publishing a children’s book.

KaleidoscopeMan Kaleidoscope Man – Phase 2

Location: Nuneaton, United Kingdom

I dig this project because, aside from the fact that I’ll never misspell the word “kaleidoscope” again, the director is offering two awesome perks –– one in which a photo of you is superimposed into a scene from the film, and another in which you will be vaporized by a laser beam, which he nicely illustrates in the tail end of the pitch video.

Helping fund a much anticipated 3 studio album and offering the coolest listening party/BBQ ever as a perk.

Here’s your chance to join a game changing community and be one of the first to get your hands on the revolutionary cardboard bike!
