Go go gadget heart: 4 charitable Kickstarter and Indiegogo campaigns and one we just like

When even your mother is emailing you about the popularity of Kickstarter (“Hey honey, I thought this would be a good moneymaking idea for you”) it’s now a viable way to fund your art. Here are some of the best, and most emotional, Kickstarter and Indie Go Go campaigns in Brooklyn.

Brooklyn’s Rescued Bestiary, a handmade letterpress book of stories and illustrations about animals rescued by the Sean Casey Animal Rescue, a no-kill shelter near Prospect Park. They even saved a two-headed turtle!

Because most female basketball tournaments are in Manhattan and New Jersey, Ballin’ Out Loud, a basketball organization for women, seeks to fund a tournament for high school girls in Brooklyn and, ultimately, a summer basketball camp for women of all ages.

And another one to tug at your heartstrings, Save the Band. Literally. Help save the music program at  I.S. 171, a middle school in Cypress Hills/East New York.

A documentary about the politics and origins of seeds called Open Sesame- The Story of Seeds. We can’t think of anything more Brooklyn, ever. But we’d totally watch it! Less than a day left to donate!

And something with no emotional or political attachment: a furniture store! Sean Hackett, a furniture designer is looking to open Kerf, a furniture store in Bushwick.
