My dearest friend Joan Jr altered me to this Indiegogo campaign for scholarships to the eco-village training course in Missouri. As with most good crowd-sourcing pitches they have created a compelling video which i would ask you to take a couple of minutes and review.
While this is an international project, it has a strong set of local roots and a commitment to investing mostly locally. This text from the Indiegogo project description.
Your contribution does much more than to help bring a student from the other side of the world to Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage in mid-America. Your contribution has further impact by growing our local economy and local currency system. Last year, 87% of our budget was spent within five miles of our community. EEUS and Dancing Rabbit model the power of local economy 365 days a year using our alternative local currency, ELMs. Scholarship contributions help immerse students in our community and continue to strengthen our local economy long after the students return home.
Please feel encouraged to help this scholarship fund crowd sourcing appeal.
