The strangest crowdsourced projects
Being money-conscious can sometimes be fun – as well as using Qmee you can always get others involved to raise the money you need – crowdsourced projects have proved to be a great hit over the past few years, here are some of the weirdest and most wonderful examples!
After Detroit’s Mayor declined the idea of creating a giant Robocop statue the internet pulled together to create a monument of the city’s protector. They raised around $67,000 towards the first stage of creating the 10 foot creation.
Two people from the UK have pledged to write a letter to every village in the world.So far they’ve raised $2,000 and still have 6,825,898,913 letters to write.
Two people from Brooklyn created a toaster that grilled the face of Jesus onto bread. Surprise surprise – they reached their goal!
The most recent oddity was a project to raise money for a ordinary man to make an ordinary potato salad – out of the $10 goal how much do you think they raised? That’s right, a whopping ¢52,198!
