About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

    Hello there, I would like to share this opportunity with you : Crowdfunding International CFI is a new Dutch company (launched on
    December 2015) that makes use of a unique way of crowdfunding. Almost
    all the projects will be accepted (provided that realistic), so you can
    get a house or a new car as a project.
    The way it works is simple: if you want to register your project you
    pay € 25,- administrative costs and donate your € 200,- the projects of
    others. Like for example the following project:
    In Short: you donate € 200,- to a project ( this donation is given to 3
    projects above you 25%, 25%, 50%), then you make your own project and
    you need two people off that do the same thing, but if you don't invite
    other people you get donations from the company or  your upline in The

    There must be a way to pool resources into a legal fund to provide support for individuals that come forward to legitimately accuse an abuser that has far more money to defend themselves or that would counter sue the plaintiff. I am thinking of Mr. Trump suing the women that came forward claiming he grabbed them. I am thinking of an employee that is threatened by their employer. The structure of such a not-for-profit foundation, and criteria for access/ limitations and governance would be a valuable debate.

    I'm planning raising money for a developing a historic all-inclusive hotel with a hundred rooms. Each $100 donation will receive a room night in the hotel with access to the lounge where a bartender serves unlimited premium brand cocktails from 4:3010:30 pm nightly plus unlimited first class appetizers. Rooms will rent for more than $200 inclusive. Room nights will be offered for one year on space available except if you donate $125 you will be able to select a prior date. Love hearing your comments.

    I liked the concise, informative presentation.

  10. www.PICISI.com

    PICISI is a new crowdfunding site that aims to do things differently than most crowdfunding sites, our site GUARANTEES you get to keep the amount you raise (campaign is not 'all or nothing'), that you will get some home page face time, that you will get some sponsorship, that you will get some publicity, that you will get some consultation on your campaign, and that you will get some funding.
