Fusion Crowdfunding is launched!May 8, 2014
On May 6th, LPPFusion and Focus Fusion Society launched are Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign! Between now and June 15th, when the campaign ends, we plan to raise $200,000 to fund our crucial beryllium electrodes, vital to our final push toward net energy. Please visit the Indiegogo site and donate! And please tweet about us, link to us on Facebook and tell everyone you know!
Just half way through our Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign, with 20 days to go, we’ve gotten 800 contributions totaling over $80,000. We got a big boost in news coverage from Gizmag, bringing in a wave of contributions. On the Indiegogo site, we are just we are just a few slots shy of being on their front page, which should give us another big boost when we arrive, possibly this week. So, even though we are at 40% of our goal half-way through the campaign, we still have great hopes of reaching our goal. In fact all 12 of the campaigns currently on the front page have already reached their goals.
But we’ll need more publicity and our LPP Fusion team, Focus Fusion Society volunteers and our great campaign staffers are working hard letting the world know about clean fusion energy research. Thanks to all those who have given generously. We need your contributions, no matter what size, if you have not already given go for it now! Our special thanks to our top givers: Robert Beigler, Peter Crabb, Andrew Kursar and Walter Rowntree at $5,000 each and Jay Arena, Victoria Fash, Sami Lehesaari, Russell Robles , Greg Sanders and three anonymous donors at $1,000 each. Onwards to our goal!
