    for the "send Indy to Panama with his football team" fund. We are doing a program called GlobalFootball (I think) and we are going to Panama to practice and play with some club teams down there. It's pretty expensive though, so anyone who wants to donate and help the cause is welcome to! :)

    $2590-2790 depending on where we fly out of. If my facebook friends come through and donate the $2 I asked each of them to donate, I will already have $1920! Come on 8th, I know you got some money collecting dust in the bank that you'd like to donate to a good cause!

    You can put me down for $20 if you can enough for the entire trip.

    Shouldn't you be having a carwash or something?

    If it comes down to it I might. I just figured I'd ask my friends first!

    Aw man, I walked right into that one. Busted. Now I can't donate lest there be a paper trail.

    Have you thought about starting an account on rockethub, Indy? I am using it to try out the relatively new concept of "crowd-funding" science. Sounds like you could use the site for this.

    Here's my project. It just started, but hopefully it will snowball at some point. Project: Climate Change in the Cradle of Civilization | RocketHub

    Yeah a friend of my mentioned trying something similar to this. I'm not sure if people would really want to fund my trip. It's not related to academics much at all. It's just for football and spreading the sport. I'll look into it though. Was that you in the video?

    Yes it was.

    There are plenty of non-academic projects on that site and others that do alright. It would probably help you get that 2 dollars per facebook friend if you had a video pitch and a brief written explanation.

    I have no idea whether my project will be successful in raising funds or not, but it will give me something to show people from now until the end of my research.

    I guess I should have made a video for funding my membership fee to Hair Club for Men. That's what is getting noticed.

    You might make quite a bit of money doing that. And it could then all be donated to your real project.
