            <div>Hi Lawrence,<br>
              <br>
            </div>
            Nice post on crowdfunding. The tips are very much like what
            sites like Indiegogo recommends.<br>
            <br>
          </div>
          I also want to share my experience with crowdfunding so far.
          My wife Liza (who is also a Mozillian) and I started a
          personal crowdfunding campaign (<a moz-do-not-send="true"
            href="http://igg.me/at/pinkbasket/x/8937320">http://igg.me/at/pinkbasket/x/8937320</a>)
          and so far we have raised 17% of our goal one week after its
          launch.<br>
          <br>
        </div>
        <div>Here are some of our insights and what works for us thus
          far:<br>
          <ul>
            <li><b>Take part in Giving Tuesday</b> (start a campaign by
              December 2) - Indiegogo's partners will give you extra
              tools to promote your campaign, very helpful<br>
            </li>
            <li><b>Make a list</b> - We literally made a list of people
              whom we think will support us and we won't be shy about
              asking for help. I think this is key because as you
              mentioned, no one wants to support a campaign with zero
              backers and there is hesitation on being the first
              contributor</li>
            <li><b>People are not viewing the campaign video </b>-
              Interestingly enough, we created a simple video for our
              campaign but it is not getting played. Indiegogo
              recommends having a video, but I guess having a clear
              & well-written story is more important to us right
              now.<br>
            </li>
          </ul>
          That's it so far. I'd be happy to share what we're learning as
          we go, just email me off-list.<br>
          <br>

        <div>Thanks!<br>
