I just wrote an ebook about crowdfunding which is the industry covering the new ways to get capital from donations. You all have probably heard of the companies that I work with such as Kickstarter and GoFundMe. GoFundMe's owners had asked me for help recently to establish their afffiliate program and since I work with the foremost stem cell group I'd asked the owners if they allowed for people to solicit for medical treatments and they reponded with a resounding "Yes!", and showed me some of their most successful campaigns where people in need of paying for treatments or paying for their medical bills raised tens of thousands of dollars in a short period of time. So I sent our patients to their sites as GoFundMe allows this but Kickstarter doesn't. It's a simple process as you just use their website to post the situation, set your high mark like let's say $100k and wait for the donations to come in. You don't have to pay the money back it's all donations. If we work with Dr. Leir's people we can have a solicitations page up in no time. As soon as donations come in the money is instantly transferred to his people. That simple. I can talk to the owners Brad and Greg of GoFundMe and we can set something up asap. Now, we ufologists can help drive traffic to that page featuring Dr. Leir by putting links to it from our websites and blogs, Facebook, Twitter, and on our radio programs. Considering the massive amount of traffic the ufological community has we might be able to get Dr. Leir's bills paid off quick or at least put a major dent in them. So the formula is simple, Dr. Leir's people set up a page at GoFundMe or I think Indiegogo, they send we ufologist a link to the page and we get that link out there by any means necessary. This works as one of my subjects, a woman who had a CE3 is raising money for her aunt a very popular movie script consultant that needed money for her medical bills. That campaign moved fast. I don't know Dr. Leir personally but have chatted with him her on UpDates but I can show his people how to do it quick. Now another way we can help is that on a crowdfunding campaign when people donate you can offer them gifts like autographed copies of your books, t-shirts, whatever you can muster. So I could chip in with some artwork or one of you could chip in with autographed copies of your books or whatever. I'm suggesting all this because it works wonderfully with people who don't have the web traffic results like ufologists have. Any of you going on the radio shows can just promote the page and chip in that way. Best, Greg ufomafia.com/blog Listen to 'Strange Days...
