Support is Raised for Who Cares? through an Indiegogo Crowd Funding Campaign

The Who Cares? team receives requests from around the world to screen the film.  These screenings inspire audiences to do something meaningful with their lives.  In order to respond to all the demand for the film, and grow the film’s ability to be a tool inspire audiences, and then channel this energy in a meaningful way, our team launched an Indiegogo crowd funding campaign. In the Spring of 2014, the campaign was launched with a party at the Center for Social Innovation in New York City, with support from our Indiegogo Campaign Partner, The Cordes Foundation, whose mission is  to champion bold, innovative solutions to the world’s toughest problems. They do this by connecting, equipping and supporting social entrepreneurs.  The Cordes Foundation’s efforts to help us spread awareness about the film has been invaluable and we look forward to working together to inspire the next generation of social entrepreneurs.

Thanks to the nearly 150 individuals who contributed to our Indiegogo campaign, the campaign helped us raise money to amplify our current international distribution efforts and bring the film to the next level. Our campaign was hugely successful, and allowed us to raise over $15,000! You can check out our campaign goals here!

Since we launched our campaign, the Indiegogo platform allowed for an awesome tool to gain financial resources to continue to grow the film’s distribution efforts, but it also became an unexpected friend raiser!! We have met many of our fiercest supporters through our launch party and other events and interactions that resulted from our campaign.  We are forever grateful to all the brilliant advice, great screening ideas, network sharing, and encouragement along the way!!!

We look forward to using this support to continue enhancing the Who Cares? Community.  Without the community, there would be nothing. We truly believe that the community is what makes Who Cares? so special, and we are forever grateful to everyone who gave money to the film.

Together, we look forward to growing the movement of changemaking!!

Special Thanks to our Campaign Partner:
