kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the Gulf oil mapping Jeffrey Warren 5/29/10 6:03 AM
Hey folks - I just posted this on the blog, but we could really use some help getting the word out to raise some money for Louisiana Bucket Brigade and all the volunteers down on the Gulf coast. We're trying to pay for gas, helium, kites, and whatever we need to keep capturing such great map data:


We’re starting a Kickstarter fundraising campaign to support citizen mappers of the Gulf Oil Spill. Check out the above video, and visit the Kickstarter page. The cool part about Kickstarter is that you get ‘rewards’ for pledging given amounts – if you pledge $10 we’ll send you a 5×7 print of one of our images. If you pledge $100, we’ll do better – along with a 16×20 poster, we’ll write your name on one of the kites we use to capture this imagery! But we need your help to get the word out. Unless we reach our funding goal by June 21, nobody pays – it’s all or nothing!

There's also a short link for Twitter and such: http://kck.st/cj3Anh

Ok I have added it at sUASnews.com http://www.suasnews.com/2010/05/336/grassroots-mapping-needs-you/ and am starting to add it to environmental forums.

Its about all I can do from here to help.

Cheers

Ok I have twittered and facebooked as well, also starting to try and knock on traditional medias door.

I find the comment that came up immediately on DIYD interesting http://www.diydrones.com/profiles/blogs/grassroots-mapping-needs-you#comments

Maybe there are BP watching and waiting for comment.
