After the International Monetary Fund has confirmed that it didn’t receive the €1.6 billion payment from Greece that was due by the end of June 30, Brussels time, a British man has taken action and decided he has the answer to the countries long-running debt debacle.
Thom Feeney, a London marketing manager, decided he would do his part to solve the Greek financial crisis by asking for donations via crowdfunding site Indiegogo.
He’s already raised over $230,000– about 0.01% of what Greece needs, offering postcards of Alexis Tsipras for €3 or a bottle of Greek wine for €25.
Unfortunately, the campaign ends in less than a week, and under Indiegogo rules if a project is not fully funded by the deadline, the campaign doesn’t receive the funds.
And Greece is so deep in the hole that even if the Feeny kept raising over $230,000 per day, it would take 24 years to reach the $2.1 billion goal.
