Those of you that are familiar with my posts will know that I generally focus on WordPress Development and New Tech. However sometimes something comes along that captures your imagination and this is one of those moments…

“CrowdFunding a bailout fund for Greece. By the people, for the people”

As the Greek government and its creditors are locked in talks ahead of a deadline for the country to meet a £1.6bn debt repayment, an online crowdfunding campaign started by a London shoe shop worker is aiming to break the impasse by collecting a Greek bailout fund of his own.

Thom Feeney, 29, launched the campaign to raise the money, calling on all Europeans to “chip in a few euro” and end the standoff. The Guardian

  • With the world seemingly in chaos and little sense of the goodness of Human Kind this is one way that we can all show solidarity for those of us that are struggling with the hardship of modern day life. I for one have already made a pledge and will look forward to tucking in to my Greek Feta and Olive Salad – which happens to be one of my wife’s favourites!

    The original Greek Bailout Fund Campaign closed on the 06-July-2015 after rain a whopping €1,930,577EUR. However the target was an eye-watering €1,600,000,000 EUR goal. As such there is now a new Campaign running at Greek Crowdfund (and I’ve updated the link above). There will be a payout regardless on this campaign and it is backed up by a Greek charity. I suppose the only thing now is that the pride of the Greek politicians may well have put people off from funding a future campaign. That’s a shame.
