Here’s the latest entry in “Hey, let’s see if we can crowdfund this thing.”
Here’s an excerpt from the page:
“[1.6 billion euros] is what the Greeks need. It might seem like a lot but it’s only just over [three euros] from each European. That’s about the same as half a pint in London. Or everyone in the EU just having a Feta and Olive salad for lunch.”
The thing is getting some traction.
Nearly 443,000 euros have been pledged so far — 1.4 billion to go.
Of course that’s just the payment that was due today.
