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.
