The Kickstarter for Verbier Summer Music Camp 21 has raised just 11% of its target, a mere $3,916 in 25 days.
There are six days to go and the $35,000 goal seems a distant mirage.
Lessons to be learned?
1 Verbier’s in Switzerland. It’s not Third World. The money’s there for the taking. Nobody believes it’s in need.
2 Kickstarter is for individual human causes, not institutions.
3 Don’t start a summer camp unless you can finance it. The only outcome is a lot of disappointed kids.
