Crowdfund on Push for Good: GOOD's Guide to Crowdfunding Creative Progress

Alessandra Rizzotti

We're helping push projects forward into getting fully crowdfunded, and we're sharing all the projects here. If you want to fund innovative ideas but you don’t know what causes you care about yet, or maybe you’re still searching, consider this a guide of the goodness you can get behind. Take a look at GOOD's curated Kickstarter page, which we'll be updating regularly at kickstarter.com/good, and check back every Saturday for a round up of our favorite projects from the crowdfunding world.

Oops! Nice pic, but it’s just not our (file) type. Please try uploading a .jpg or .png image.

Well, this is embarrassing. Something went wrong when posting your comment. Care to try again?

That image is too large. Maximum size is 6MB.

    I'm trying to raise funding for, and connect individuals with, smaller organizations that are often overlooked by selling environmentally friendly screen-printed clothing that spotlights these organizations! Our first two organizations have actually been featured in Push for Good already, Kitechild and Lava Mae! igg.me/at/stylewithbenefits

      Thanks for reaching out Chelsea. Let me see if I can connect you with Ben, who runs our Business hub. Is there anything in particular you'd like to share about how you're connecting with smaller orgs? We love posts that offer some tips/wisdom. Email me at [alessandra]at[goodinc]dot[com] to connect.

    ARED has developed a solar-powered, mobile phone charging kiosk that can be towed behind a bicycle, a major mode of transportation in Rwanda. ARED is meeting a tremendous need: access to electricity to charge cell phones. The solution is clean energy, grass roots entrepreneurs, and mobility. The problem is that while around 40% of households have cell phones but are without access to electricity. In Rwanda, as in most of sub-Saharan Africa, cell phones have become ubiquitous and essential to business. ARED has designed and funded Phase I, which has five kiosks going, with five small operators (franchisees) pulling and stationing them around the cities and rural areas. We are raising money to fund 20 more redesigned and improved kiosks. Based on my research, done to support this planning last year, there is a huge market that extends across Africa to tens of millions of potential customers.
    ARED is raising $30,000 on the site below and I hope you will consider supporting our campaign. http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/solar-mobile-charging-kiosk

      Thanks for sharing this as a link on good.is! Will definitely find a way to feature it.

    • Alessandra Rizzotti

      Hi Harbinger! Have you considered posting this as a DO? Would love to feature it, but it would be great if you filled our your profile and told us why you think this project is important for your community.

    • Alessandra Rizzotti

      Hey John! Have you considered posting this as a DO? I know that you have 4 days left, but perhaps explaining how you're connected to the project, and why you want to tell this story would be a great way to gain support from the community!

    • Alessandra Rizzotti

      Alexandra! Excited that this happened. How are you guys doing now? Would love to know updates!

    We just launched our kickstarter for educating students and the general public about a sustainable water treatment technology. Bit.ly/elequakick

  • Ethos Adventures

    Hi Alessandra! I'd love to see this project (a real-world Choose Your Own Adventure mobile app) backed: ow.ly/lXP8L for two reasons

    1) Everyone needs an Adventure: It's important to step outside, breath deeply to remember why it is that we do whatever we do! We all need to recharge sometimes.
    2) Adventure travel is rarely green but this app awards each adventure an eco-score and gives adventurers opportunities to take greener actions throughout their adventure!

    There are other platforms for crowdfunding - IndieGoGo and StartSomeGood, in particular, are great hosts for fantastic campaigns for great causes!

    • Alessandra Rizzotti

      Hi Sara! We actually do highlight projects from those platforms, and if you have any projects you want to highlight, let me know. We let people know about our curated page on Kickstarter because we don't have curated pages on those other platforms.

      • Alessandra Rizzotti

        Check out good.is/push-for-good and you'll notice projects from GlobalGiving, Indiegogo, and Start Some Good. I'll make an effort to look through those platforms more often and make the distribution more equal.
