Gingers, Australian rap and no love: Stories of crowdfund fail

Try as they may, as a result of poor organization, poor rewards, a lack of effort or other factors, not every crowdfunding campaign succeeds. Here are a few campaigns with less than a week ago that are running out of time and failed to raise more than 20 percent of their goal.

1. No Love for Love Letters

Expired less than an hour ago, Love Letters for You was to be a service to help people who lack confidence write love letters. Alas, no love. One backer gave the campaign £10 of a £40,000 goal.

2. Love Commando: Honor Killings in India

This campaign was able to attract 19 backers but with two days to go has raised 22 percent of £2,900 goal.

3. “Save the Gingers

A photo book about people with red hair called “Save the Gingers” has raised 16 percent of a $5,000 goal. The book with more than 40 natural redheads has already been finished. The campaign was only to pay for printing.

4. Down Under Central Australian Hip Hop

The second installment of a documentary about hip hop artists in north central Australia has failed to garner more than 10 percent of a $1,000 goal.
