    Getting there. I have just put a relatively small $25 in, but that meant that I had to owe the GP for a few days. We all do what we can.

    • Red 1.1

      Medal in the post😀

        Don’t need a medal just knowing people are helping them to reach their goal will give me a boost and vice versa, together we will make things happen.

        Finishing time and date –
        the target is reached by: 14/04/2017 at 10:00 PM

        So $30,000, a modest sum for the project, tomorrow as above is the aim for Scoop.

    Just over $4,000 to reach the goal. Every dollar counts and pledges start at $5.00. Can you chip in?

    When the funds are raised one of the things we will do is to start work on some large scale online debates using Scoop’s HiveMind platform to address some of the big election issues.

    We’ve already canvassed Scoop members and donors for the most important topics. They are
    1. Housing
    2. Environment
    3. Inequality
    4. Health
    5. Employment (The future of work)

    What difference does it make whether I make a pledge or donate directly to the Scoop Foundation?

    • r0b 3.1

      A pledge will help them reach the target and get the cash. If they don’t reach the target the pledges never turn in to actual cash.

      • Incognito 3.1.1

        Reaching the target is important and publically visible but conditional; a donation is not public but unconditional. I suppose they are not mutually exclusive but I prefer donating.

        • Jan Rivers 3.1.1.1

          Scoop is keen to adopt PressPatron for future funding as otherNZ news/blogs/commentary sites have. Public Address is one. That allows for one-off and recurring donations.

    Why don’t you just think along the lines of helping them reach the goal of their project.
    Anyway it is a moot point as they HAVE achieved target ahead of time.
    Greaatt!!
