Greece Crisis: Indiegogo Greek Bailout Fund Goes Viral

Fact checked

A new  Indiegogo campaign has been set-up that has a mission statement of “empowering everyone to change the world“. The aim of the crowdfunding campaign is to raise 1.6 billion euros in order to bailout Greece. 

The campaign, named ‘Greek Bailout Fund‘, has absolutely no austerity restrictions attached to it, and it has already raised €464,778 Euros in just 2 days. reports:

Things seem to be moving fast, though it’s worth remembering that at the current rate, raising this much money would still take time. If the campaign does not hit its lofty goal of raising 1.6 billion euros, then contributors are supposed to get their money back.

If they do hit the goal, the campaign’s creator, a self-described a 29-year-old based in London, says; “all profits will go to the Greek people.” As the Indiegogo page puts it: “€1.6bn is what the Greeks need. It might seem like a lot but it’s only just over €3 from each European.”

And for a €3 you supposedly get a postcard sent from Alex Tsipras, the Greek Prime Minister.

So far it looks like 33 people have donated €160; 260 have donated €25; 460 have donated €10; 330 have pledged €6; and nearly 1,000 have donated €3.

That’s almost 1,000 postcards of Tsipras due to be sent.
