The Telegraph reports:
A crowdfunding campaign attempting to save troubled Greece from bankruptcy has raised more than €130,000 in just one day – although it still has a long way to go to reach the €1.6bn needed.
The ‘Greek bailout fund’ campaign was started by 29-year-old London-based Thom Feeney, who says Greece would be better letting “the people” decide its fate rather than European ministers.
It has attracted funds from almost 8,000 investors – and is rising by the minute.
“The European Union is home to 503 million people, if we all just chip in a few Euro then we can get Greece sorted and hopefully get them back on track soon. Easy,” he writes on crowdfunding website Indiegogo.
“It might seem like a lot but it’s only just over €3 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.”
That’s a great idea. If you think Greece needs to liberated from the IMF and European creditors, bail them out yourself.
