Topic - Crowd Funding for mountaineering/climbing trips

TRip - on 05 Mar 2013
I've noticed a couple of forthcoming climbing expeditions have been using the crowd sharing site Indiegogo to help fund their trip.

I'm currently planning another big trip myself and am toying with the idea of setting up an account.

The idea is that you contribute a fixed amount of money towards a trip and you get something in return. Be that a thank you letter, postcard, print, ect.

Would you pay some money to help some other climbers go on a big trip?

If so why?

If you are not so keen why wouldn't you?

Here are couple of recent examples:

Cheers,
