Holiday Tech 2015 – Holiday Giving Expanded with Internet Crowdfunding

November 30, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Doug Dixon's annual review and demo of the latest fun (and useful) mobile tech products for the holiday season. He also will explore how Internet "crowdfunding" can expand your holiday giving, by using sites like KickStarter to help aspiring entrepreneurs create exciting new products, and sites like GoFundMe to provide direct support for people in need.

 

These sites bring together passionate creators with groups of individual supporters who provide small donations that add up to a new flowering of charity, product invention, and artistic expression.

 

Doug also will demonstrate fun new products and designs that have resulted from crowdfunding projects, from inventive books and films to clever tech gadgets. Come and see how crowdfunding can make your holiday giving both more personal and more satisfying.
