Greece missed its 1.6 billion euro ($1.8 billion) payment due to the International Monetary Fund, 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 and in just 5 days raised €1.3million, and it’s gathering pace quickly. If everyone in Europe donated just £2.26 then the target would be reached.
We don’t need politicians to sort this out, people power and solidarity could do it.
