We’ve all heard of Kickstarter, and the various ins and outs of controversies that surround it. And while I’m not about to look down on anybody for funding the Veronica Mars movie (because, um, I might have done so myself), some people have questioned the moral worth behind Kickstarter causes. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with wanting to hear new music from your favorite artist or see new stories unfold on the screen starring your favorite characters. But what if you could give money to a really worthy cause, too?
Enter Catapult.org It’s an organization that crowdfunds projects that help women all across the globe. You can find a project to support, choosing from categories such as child brides, human trafficking, HIV/AIDS, reproductive rights and maternal health. Catapult is combating inequality and violence towards women, one crowdfunded project at a time. Now there’s an idea we can all get behind.
