Londoner crowdfunding cash for Greek bailout

Subscribe to our Newsletters

Here’s the latest entry in “Hey, let’s see if we can crowdfund this thing.” 

There’s a new account on Indiegogo called the “Greek Bailout Fund” set up by Thom Feeney, a 29-year-old from East London.  

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.
