We’ve always wanted to change the lives of talented street artists all over Europe, we don’t care if we have to spend 100 days in an RV to do it. The end result will definitely be worth it!
Lisbon, Portugal (PRWEB) June 21, 2013
There are millions of crowdfunding projects out there; however, Hello Europe is different from any other. Instead of introducing a new product or album to the public, the founders aim to truly make a difference. The founders behind Hello Europe were three old friends that shared the same goal, to raise funds that will go towards changing the lives of street artists. In the final days on Indiegogo, Hello Europe needs the crowdfunding community to rally behind this worthy cause.
Hello Europe’s founders, Guilherme Duarte, Ivo Tavares, and João Mendes, will spend 100 days in an RV, traveling through Europe to visit 24 cities. In every city, the trio will identify the 3 most talented street artists. After they find the top 3 street artists, from musicians to performers to artists, the founders will record a video showcasing each busker and their work. The video will then be shared across Hello Europe’s social networks for followers to vote on and share their favorite street artist. The winning busker will be rewarded with online exposure and a prize from the trio.
“Hello Europe is more than your average crowdfunding campaign,” says Hello Europe co-founder Guilherme Duarte. “We’ve always wanted to change the lives of talented street artists all over Europe, we don’t care if we have to spend 100 days in an RV to do it. The end result will definitely be worth it!”
Hello Europe is in its final days left on Indiegogo and still needs help from the crowdfunding community. With a flex funding goal of $30,000, the money raised will go towards travel expenses and the prizes the three friends will offer the best buskers of each European city. The trio hopes to encourage funders by offering a wide array of perks, ranging from t-shirts to a personal painting to traveling with the trio for the day. Starting at just $5 and stretching to $1,000, any pledge level greatly helps reach the Hello Europe crowdfunding goal.
Head to the Hello Europe Indiegogo page to help fund, or learn more about this worthy cause. The crowdfunding campaign ends Saturday, June 22nd at 11:59pm PT, so be sure to pledge before then.
