I’ve been trolling some interesting websites as of late, with the mind to do Christmas gifts with a little more meaning. The many websites that offer group buy-ins to help a cause or independent get the capital needed to make a difference or get started on a project have been catching my eye. The merchant offers incentives or thank-you’s to various levels of support, and some of those incentives would make awesome gifts. If it is a tangible product, they even offer the product itself.
After perusing Indiegogo, here are some of the fundraisers I am loving.
True Patriot is an all Canadian comic book adventure drawn and featuring some Canadian loves. The artists are those who have graced TV supporting cartoons that include Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, and award-winning comics such as Two Generals and Runaways.
Or there are some great techie projects that could use a boost:
The BRIGHT Solar Lamp and Phone Charger is a useful tool in our North American lifestyles. But the main purpose behind the design of the lamp is to replace kerosene lamps in countries such as Kenya, Tanzania and Bangladesh through entrepreneurial opportunities for women.
1:Face Watch is also a tech project with a heart. By picking the colour of the watch you would like, your money goes towards that charity’s initiative. Some of those initiatives are building a well, supplying charcoal efficient stoves, feeding children and providing AIDS treatment.
