An international organization steered towards raising the standards of various people in the world. The Indiegogo campaign was founded in 2008 by Danae Ringelmann, Slava Rubin, and Eric Schell. Its headquarters are in San Francisco,California. It is the first campaign to offer crowd funding. It offers funds for ideas, charity and also start-up businesses.
Good examples of that is the case of Abdul and his daughter Reem from Lebanon. These two are benefactors of this campaign. The campaign has helped provide shelter, food and the right papers for Abdul. Other such acts include the work Dr. Cliff, a worldwide vet is doing in Jamaica. With the help of the campaign this doctor is headed to Jamaica to care for injured, wildlife or homeless pets, then make a film.
Dr. Cliff is traveling from the U.S to Jamaica to use his talent and abilities and love for animals to help both wild and domestic animals. This is a trip will take a team of several interns and the doctor himself. This team is very excited to venture into new places and see the world while at the same time helping people. During this trip the team seeks to make a film. According to the doctor, the money from the Indiegogo charity will help cover the travel expenses, accommodation, supplies for medical and surgical cases and also to pay the film crew they are with. Because they are making a film it will also help cover some of the expenses and maybe with the surplus divide among themselves.
These cases are just few in a very big number of cases that the campaign has been involved in in the U.S. like many other campaigns it has its merits and its demerits. Many people are actually happy with the site while others criticize the site for not accepting funds from foreigners.
