It’s that time of the week when we look at what creative ideas Canadians are raising money to support.
Check out these Canadian crowdfunding picks-of-the-week:
The Campus Sleeve
This uniquely designed laptop sleeve was created by four university students in Toronto. Using only green energy throughout the process, the product is also nearly waste-free because it is made with Visionknit’s 3D knitting technology. Donate $35 or more and you’ll get the most guilt-free laptop case out there today.
Ottawa Linux Symposiumn
Fifteen years in, the original organizers of the Linux Symposium (OLS) have lost some key sponsorship dollars. They now hope to raise enough money to have accountants examine their status, while investing any remaining funds into smaller, more focused events for the Linux community. But they’re not only asking for funds: if you have a testimonial to contribute, it also helps the cause.
Langley-based siteautobackup.com is looking for sponsors to help web page operators who can’t afford a back up solution. The company will match the amount of backup space donated and add it to the funder’s account - with no future recurring charges. Contribute $50 or more and you can even sell your unused backup capacity to generate income for yourself.
Help the town known for it’s international Star Trek conventions create warp technology. To achieve this ambitious goal, Vulcan Tourism is setting $2 billion as an initial finding goal. The campaign is complete with a timeline and projected budget. Donate today - resistance is futile.
