Yarn Graffiti Doc Indiegogoback to all news »
We just launched our online fundraiser for the Yarn Graffiti Documentary on Indiegogo. Please go to http://www.indiegogo.com/Yarn-Graffiti-Documentary check it out, donate, and help us spread the word.
If you don’t already know, online fundraisers like Indiegogo are all about allowing anybody to raise money for any idea. The sites structure allows users to create a page for their funding campaign, set up an account with PayPal, make a list of “perks” for different levels of donation, then create a social media-based publicity effort. Users publicize the projects themselves through Facebook, Twitter and similar platforms. The site levies a 4% fee for successful campaigns, and 9% for campaigns that fail to reach their target amount. Unlike similar sites such as Kickstarter, Indiegogo disburses the funds immediately. According to the Wall Street Journal, 10% of Indiegogo projects raise their requested amount, while 40% of projects raise at least $500. Indiegogo is also used by already-funded projects to create publicity or find distributors.
Even if you can’t give right now, let your friends, co-workers and family know about what I’m doing and see if they can help. We have 110 days to raise this $15,000. We need everyone’s help, not only to donate if they can, but also to spread the word. We are writing grants and looking into sponsorship but we need to get going on raising some funds so that we can spend some time this summer filming our subjects.
