Team Indiegogo’s Campaign Roundup (11/22/13)


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:

Shedding the Old Me Americanistan

Location: Toronto, Ontario

I love the utter diversity of this project: Canadians, Americans, and Lebanese. As a big fan of the “Daily Show,” I can’t help but fall for Adam and Ali’s ridiculous sense of humor that goes along with the TV pilot.

Fly Fishing Christmas Gift Benefit 2013: Striving for PiFection

Location: New York, NY

I would have enjoyed learning math a lot more if it was taught through music. Check out what Exponential Ensemble is doing to combine the two!

Twice Upon a Time Build Community and Make Music in Armenia

Location: New York, NY

This youth orchestra from Armenia is raising funds to purchase instruments like violas, cellos, and violins for their young musicians. The pitch video is wonderfully made, humorous, musical, and full of love ♫ ♪

SOS Surviving on Stamps Casa del Caffe

Location: Ahuachapán, El Salvador

Having family in Colombia, I’m aware of how local coffee bean farmers are left out of larger revenue streams. I am impressed with the passion behind this campaign and can see this having the potential to empower local farmers in Latin America.

SaveSammy GroupTones

Location: Boston, MA

GroupTones is a sweet location-based tool for connecting musicians with like-minded, available people with whom to collaborate–made for musicians, by musicians.

SEducation for Kenya AKT Jewels

Location: Annecy, France

This Frenchman is turning weapons into beautiful, hand-crafted jewelry and spreading a positive message.
