I have taken the plunge and set up a Project on Kickstarter.com to help fund the next phase of the Methane Midden. Kickstarter is a funding site designed to use blogs and social media to help fund small, creative ideas. The project owner sets a funding goal ($500 for me) and a time limit (July 31st, midnight!) and lets the world know about it (this post).
Then the world pledges small amounts $1+ and spreads the project via their networks. Before you know it the project funding goals have been met! Sounds great right?
A few caveats – no one is charged (they use Amazon) until the TOTAL pledge goal is reached – we need to get at least $500. AND no one is charged until the project period is over (Aug 1st 12:01am).
And the most important point – there is no upper limit to the pledges. Anyone who has read this blog at all knows I can find creative ways to spend money to save the world… I have also added a widget to the right sidebar.
So I am asking you to help this idea out; help me raise the money needed to get it to the next level and make this awesome idea happen!
