Hey Cool! PledgeMe is a KickStarter type of site where you can raise funds for a creative project, or donate to a suitable project – Aimed for New Zealand based projects (which are sadly excluded from Kickstarter and other such sites). Looks like there’s already been a couple of successful projects, including Wellington-based all-girl St Rupertsburg who have managed to fund the production of their debut EP.
These initiatives are really taking off in the states, and for good reason. Check it out and contribute, or if you have your own project in mind, get involved! As (1970’s DIY punk outfit) Desperate Bicycles said – ‘It was easy, it was cheap, GO AND DO IT!’
