I’m rather addicted to the crowd funding site Kickstarter. It’s not just a place to “pre pre-order” and get stuff cheap. It’s a place you can back artists and, increasingly, good local causes.
You can back this local Edinburgh company by promising just £5 (if they’re successful) in return for a mention or £10 that and some soup.
It’s perhaps a little bit of a shame all they offer is soup at the lower levels. I get that’s what they do but they could have thrown in some t-shirts sooner, made profit on those and ended up with a small army of local advertisers wearing their brand.
The Kickstarter is a great idea. I hope it succeeds. I hope we see more local businesses doing this.
