"How 50/50 was born
The brainchild of social innovation lab Good for Nothing, in collaboration with Made by Many, the platform 50/50 was conceived over a few Skype calls, a couple of beers, and some agile technical experimentation.
As a team we felt compelled to help, to try and make a dent in the huge funding gap. We thought about the direct power of citizens, people using their networks to come together and fix things.
It's now an international initiative with nearly 50 projects spread across 8 different countries. Think of it as a collaborative fundraising experiment—a collection of extraordinary digital projects from all over the world.
So far the success of 50/50 has been entirely dependent on a broad team of individuals, collectives, agencies, clients and media getting involved to form an adhocracy of makers.
We now need your help. We now have our projects. We need more donations.
This is how you can help:
find a project to back, and promote it among your friends and networks
if you like what we're doing, simply donate.
Whatever you do, do something for famine aid.?
