    British man launches crowdfunding campaign to help Greece

    Greece is widely expected to miss its 1.6 billion euro ($1.8 billion) payment due to the International Monetary Fund on Tuesday, but one British man is hoping a bit of pocket change can help pull Greeks out of their misery once and for all.

    Young Londoner Thom Feeney has launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise the entire 1.6 billion euros needed to cover the country's repayment shortfall within seven days.

    The "Greek Bailout Fund" campaign on crowdfunding platform Indiegogo.com was launched one day ago and has so far raised over 134,000 euros ($150,000) from more than 8,500 people. This was up from around 10,000 euros at the start of the morning.

    This crowdfunding campaign is cash for a Greek bailout
    There is no crisis that capitalism can't get out of if the working class is willing to pay for it.

    What a fantastic idea!

    How much is his management fee and where is he going to take the money? I'd go for one of the better hotels in Crete.... and some of the bars.... maybe even help out by buying a porshe over there, just to keep the ecconomy going....

    They're already eating out of dumpsters. You want them to starve? Pay your fair share.
