Indiegogo Update

Just a quick reminder: the current Indiegogo campaign’s expiring today. This does NOT mean anything’s changing with the overall fundraising project; even with no deadline the maximum time for a campaign to run is 120 days and today’s just when it expires.

I’ll base my next action on how much return of the $1050 raised during this one actually comes my way after Indiegogo’s fees. About $150 has actually been received so far and the rest has been held in escrow until the conclusion of the campaign. There are always hidden fees and creative interpretation of rules to allow Indiegogo to keep the maximum they can. Unlike the first campaign I foolishly used a deadline in and which refunded all pledges when the goal wasn’t met, this one will mark the first time I’ve ever received the proceeds. I do like the extra accountability and peace of mind provided by Indiegogo’s counter, but if their take is too high I’ll just go back to the straightforward PayPal donation button as this moves forward. I think the legitimacy of the fundraiser after its 15 months in existence has been affirmed enough so that contributors can be comfortable trusting my accounting (since this WordPress blog doesn’t support widgets like a counter) and know that I’m not about to abscond to Mexico!

Perhaps I’ll look into another fundraising platform like ChipIn to continue as an alternative, but I wanted everyone to know that this project will never simply go away or that I’d ever give up on it. This is after all my life that’s being restored, not some ‘nice to have’ sort of endeavor, so be assured it’ll be around until it’s done!

About Glenn Horowitz

I'm a 20 year civil courier pilot, retired by multiple sclerosis. From summer of 2011 until December 2013 my efforts went mostly to my first blog, Get Glenn Mobile, to raise the funds needed to convert my Honda Element for wheelchair access and end my virtual housebound confinement. This was realized just after Christmas 2013 when I was able to acquire a superb X-WAV Element, already modified for my use. Though the original goal wasn't met, what was raised, plus my Honda, plus the proceeds of the sale from my mother's car were enough to make it happen. It's an amazing story in itself! Now, after my release from homebound prison, I can augment the journalistic work I'm doing for the American Daily Herald by getting out in public, talking with people, perhaps even getting some media attention to explain why someone as disabled as I am knows these unfunded entitlement programs like Social Security and its 'disability insurance' are bogus and do more harm than good, and in fact why the whole welfare/warfare state is contrived to keep the gravy train rolling for those who benefit while they drain our resources and eat out our substance. Why 'public education' is really public INDOCTRINATION that's become a meat grinder destroying our youth and our future. Why the fiat currency foisted on us by the Federal Reserve for a hundred years has destroyed the dollar and will without doubt cause its collapse. On and on the list goes, and I want to talk with the world about these vital matters.
