Are you interested in starting a sharing project, or know someone who is? Then you should apply for a seed grant from Shareable! This brand-new pilot program offers small grants and technical support to students and young leaders under 30 to help them catalyze a sharing project in their communities.
This IndieGoGo campaign for the Gravity Light is also an eloquent reason why crowdfunding, with all it's youthful troubles considered, is so important. It lets everyone fund their own skunk works to solve problems that are important to them.
Shareable donor Beverly Markiewicz had the brilliant idea to gather other donors to shoot a quick video about why Shareable is important and worthy of your financial support. She also did the video pro bono through her company, Tree Ring Productions. Thank you Beverly!

Neal Gorenflo is the co-founder and publisher of Shareable Magazine, a nonprofit online magazine about sharing. As a former market researcher, stock analyst, and Fortune 500 strategist, Neal is perhaps an unlikely voice for sharing. An epiphany in 2004 inspired Neal to leave the corporate world to help people share through Internet startups, publishing, grassroots organizing, and a circle of friends committed to the common good.
