Crowdfunding - I learn a new word!
I have to rush out and do some house peddling, so I'll post this as I received it:
Today we launched a video and crowd funding campaign for the NZL Sailing Team with Emirates Team New Zealand to attend the Red Bull Youth Americas Cup.
I’m wondering if you might be able to help us spread the word of this campaign? Either
Through www.crew.org.nz, your social media, or by email. Any extra attention you’re able to bring will be extremely valuable to us!!
Here is some of the messaging we’re using :
A group of New Zealand’s top youth sailors have an opportunity to compete at the first ever Youth Americas Cup Regatta in September 2013- and they need your support to help them win it for New Zealand.
We’ve started an online crowdfunding campaign to generate some funds for this team of under 24 year olds: the NZL Sailing Team with Emirates Team New Zealand. Check it out.
We’ll only get the funds (and you’ll only be charged) if we meet our funding target. Please consider pledging to this project and be one of the people that enables this talented group of youngsters carve a new pathway to sailing at the Americas cup. There are some great rewards as a bonus to all pledgers, and for those who want more, there are significant sponsorship opportunities on offer.
If you can’t pledge or make a donation, please at least forward this email or ‘share’ the story from our Facebook to reach other people who can contribute.
A little bit- from a lot of people- goes an extremely long way.
Thanks for your help
