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:
I wanna be a Hero
Location: Beirut, Lebanon
Piotr is learning all about entrepreneurship at Draper U in Silicon Valley. He will take all that he learns back to his home country of Lebanon and run workshops locally. He wants to inspire entrepreneurship in the Middle East. I agree that he is a hero!
All Together Skatepark: Open Seattle’s Only Indoor Skatepark!
Location: Seattle, Washington
Let’s build an indoor skate facility to help keep Seattle-ons, Seattle-ites, Seattons…out of the rain!
Z*Con – a Zombie Film Set In A Comic Con
Location: Annapolis, Maryland
I like the campaign because the campaign owner knows how to have fun on Twitter with well-worded Tweets and interesting hashtags like #areyoubit and #spreadtheinfection. Plus, it’s a pretty cool concept; I mean, how long would it take you to spot a real life zombie in a comic convention?
Help Send Xbox One’s and Playstation 4’s to Military Hospitals!
Location: Arlington, Virginia
My campaign this week is Operation Supply Drop- A campaign that is raising funds to send video game care packages to US troops that are currently deployed. A very noble initiative that you should check out and back today.
Godless Congregations for All: The Sunday Assembly Global Platform
Location: London, United Kingdom
This is a great campaign with a super creative team behind it. I love the motto of “good without god” for their Church and I applaud their big, hairy, audacious goal. Oh and it’s a UK campaign so you know I am a fan of that as the international person!
Help buy a new x-ray machine for the injured animals at Toronto Wildlife Centre
Location: Toronto, Canada
This campaign is not only for an x-ray machine: it’s for the helping, healing, and sustaining of our wildlife. Their Tumblr also reveals some amazing footage of their work! Check it out!
Anejo Short Film – Traditional animation from Columbia
Location: Bogotá, Columbia
Two young Film & Television students from Colombia sharing their hard work and passion for traditional animation – I absolutely love the step-by-step demonstration in the pitch video of how a film character comes into being from a real-life image. Fascinating creative process with a lot of hard work!
The Scarlett Sapphire
Location: Perth, Australia
Great film that has smashed it’s target & looking forward to seeing it come to life!
