How Saving $2.75 a Day Can Change Your Life | The Crowdfunding Atlas | Scoop.it
The recent presidential election demonstrated how small changes can have a big impact.


Why post this? Well, if you have loose change around, you wil soon be able to back a local company and get a lot more bang for your buck than this author seems to think is out there.

Shareable: It's Time to Go Big: A Vision for the Sharing Economy

Shareable: It's Time to Go Big: A Vision for the Sharing Economy | The Crowdfunding Atlas | Scoop.it

The sharing economy is maturing. It’s big enough for the government to take notice and participants are strong enough to begin working together.

Ideas and community are the forces behind crowdfunding. Let's hope the SEC rulings for th eJOBS Act do not inadvertently make it difficult to share your dollars with people who need them.
