Team Indiegogo’s Campaign Roundup (9/20/13)


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:

Alice (@alicebely)

HarlemLacrosse Harlem Lacrosse & Leadership Girls Program

Location: New York, New York

Lacrosse in Harlem? This campaign uses my favorite sport to empower middle school girls.

Frameri Frameri: One Lens, Many Frames

Location: Cincinnati, Ohio

I’ve been wearing glasses since fourth grade.  It’s so exciting to see these UVA and Notre Dame alums pairing up to give me (and thousands of other glasses wearers worldwide!) the option to use one set of lenses in many fashionable frames.

TamaleLady Viva La Tamale Lady!

Location: San Francisco, California

Viva La Tamale Lady!  Help one of San Francisco’s institutions realize her dream in building a brick and mortar restaurant so she may continue delighting the taste-buds of the hungry while comforting the masses as our adopted surrogate grandmother.


PerfectBikePant The Perfect Bike Pant

Location: San Francisco, California

Bike commuter pants have taken off but the options for women are practically nonexistent. The team at Iladora aims to solve this problem.

Santo SANTO 7.13.15 GMO MOVIE

Location: Los Angeles, California

I like it because it’s taking a serious subject like genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and talking about it in a fictional science-fiction film that will hopefully educate and much as it seeks to entertain audiences.

FABtotum FABtotum Personal Fabricator

Location: Milan, Italy

An amazing invention. This multipurpose, open-source, low cost personal fabricator lets you scan, 3d print, and mill.

Maggie (@maggieronan)

Ashana Let’s help Ashana go to college and study computer science!

Location: San Francisco, California

Be inspired by the driven and fearless manner in which Ashana is pursuing her goal of going to college to study Computer Science–and help get her there!  This campaign has done super well so far, but there’s still a large gap between her financial aid and total tuition–check out the awesome video and contribute to this very worthy cause!

TivoliDriveIn Keep Tivoli Drive In Theatre

Location: Ipswich, Australia

Awesome grass roots campaign with a community fighting to keep what’s special to them.
