But I decided that we would try crowdfunding for the first time. 

In October, my wife and I will be attending a PDC together.  I'll be straightforward. We will be going. We can afford to go.  We don't need financial assistance to make it happen.  With a little extra hours at work and some budget discipline, we won't feel it in the finances.

Here's why I set it up:

1: The less it costs us, the more we can spend our $$ elsewhere. (Trees, plants, donations, an occasional night out... etc..)
2: I've seen a lot of things crowdfunded that I felt like were not in the interest of improving society and the environment. This is.
3: The ROI on a bunch of small "investments" is much higher than one BIG expense.  this goes both directions.  We can spread our "investments" across a lot more people doing the same thing if we do it as part of a large group.
4: It fits the Permaculture model. I rely on you, you rely on me.  It may not happen at the same time, but the time will come.

I don't know that there will be any success in this deal, but I figured we'd see what happens....  We're going to go and we're going to do big things with what we continue to learn.

Our PDC crowndfunding

Have fun and be safe.
