Team Indiegogo’s Campaign Roundup (1/27/14)


Every week, we give team members at Indiegogo an opportunity to talk about the campaigns that have caught their attention.

Here’s what they were talking about this week:

Witness Voice: Untold Stories of South Asia’s Partition

Witness VoiceLocation: Berkeley, California
“This seems like a last chance to gather eye witness accounts for a historical event of amazing magnitude. Almost 1 million lives have been lost, and it’s the biggest mass displacement in history–it should be thoroughly documented.”
– Loredana C. (@loredanacrisan)

Mission Bit

Mission BitLocation: San Francisco, California
“This campaign supports Bay Area public school students with computer programming classes. Who knew that only 30% of public high schools in San Francisco offer any kind of computer science classes.”– Bre D. (@indiegogocause)

Help the Garcia Kids

Garcia KidsLocation: East Boston, Massachusetts
“Tragic story of a horrible drawbridge accident which has left two children without a mom–and no dad in the picture.”– Liz W. (@gogoglobalLiz)


Pushups for Clean WaterLocation: Madrid, Spain
“An awesome international campaign that has an entire Spanish set-up parallel to their main page.”
– Stefan K.

Save Mother Cabrini High School

Mother Cabrini High SchoolLocation: New York, New York
“This campaign aims to save a 115-year old, all-girls prep school in Upper Manhattan set to close at the end of the 2014 school year. The school closure has gathered support from the press, students, alumini, and politicians in the community.”
– Manny G. (@manisito424)

6th Annual Marines Helping Marines Fishing Tournament

MarinesLocation: Wind Gap, Pennsylvania
“This is a great campaign for those who have fought for our country and been wounded to protect our freedom. Thank you for all you do!”
– Renee C. (@gogo_renee)

Broke – Feature Film

Broke Feature FilmLocation: Gladstone, Australia
“There aren’t many films about rugby out there, but if there’s only one to get made, then it’s BROKE.”
– Marc H. (theoriginalhoff)
