Hi everyone. A couple of XR chapters have joined Open Collective recently. Welcome!
I wanted to open this channel so that we can share what we each do when it comes to fundraising for our actions. That way we can learn from each other. I’m myself part of XR Belgium.
Local XR chapters on Open Collective so far:
Please introduce yourself so that we know who you are (feel free to use pseudonym, but would be good to know from which chapter you are). And share what are your current plans for fundraising.
I’m Xavier, I’m part of XR-Belgium, right now we have “22 rebels” as backers of our open collective. Our first strategy was to ask the people in the community first to support our actions. We have been using the money so far mainly for stickers, art supplies, tshirts.
We would love to introduce the concept of “Adopt a rebel”, to get people to support a particular rebel in the community so that they can work at least part time to sustain the movement and do more actions. We’ll keep you posted as we go!
