Even before the end of the ECI,&nbsp;organisers agreed that we should carry on together&nbsp;after the&nbsp;14 January deadline.

<p> Thank you, dear basic income friends, for donating to our mutual cause. Our crowdfunding campaign ended with success just a few minutes ago. You made it happen and the initative www.basicincome2013.eu will now have more options to promote the signing of the initiative&nbsp;<a href="http://sign.basicincome2013.eu/" target="_blank">http://sign.basicincome2013.eu/</a>&nbsp;which was the sole purpose of this crowdfunding effort.</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> <strong>These are the crowdfunding campaign stats:</strong></p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> <img alt="Success-stats" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/50832/success-stats.png" /></p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> 463 people donated each 49 EUR on average, which makes it 22,869 EUR total, or 152% of our goal. Thanks to a major supporter, on our first day we hit 71% of our goal set to 15,000 EUR which we reached in less than 48 hours of our campaign.</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> <strong>STAY WITH US, THERE&#39;S STILL MUCH WORK TO BE DONE</strong></p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> The next step is to <strong>collect a million signatures</strong> in at least 7 EU countries until January 14th 2014.

<p> Dear basic income friends,</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> did you know that we also have supporters who are not part of the European Union, where our initiative is based? <strong>We have Norwegians, the Swiss, Canadians and U.S. citizens.</strong> We are so glad that people outside the EU have recognized that OUR FIGHT is THEIR FIGHT, too.</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> So, if you have friends anywhere in the world who support basic income, let them know that people within our initiative want to see basic income implemented in the whole world one day. We just had to start from somewhere, so we started at home, where there was an opportunity via a European citizens&#39; initiative to start spreading the news about basic income.</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> <strong>TODAY&#39;S CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN STATS (SATURDAY, 9th November 2013)</strong></p> <p> 16,399 EUR donated (that&#39;s 109% of the goal!)</p> <p> 293 supporters</p> <p> 11 days still left in the campaign</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> <strong>WE&#39;RE STILL OPEN FOR DONATIONS</strong></p> <p> Please share this link to your friends and family and tell them to consider a small donation for our cause:&nbsp;<a href="http://funding.basicincome2013.eu/" target="_blank">http://funding.basicincome2013.eu/</a>&nbsp;-&gt; this link redirects to the crowdfunding page in English.</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> <strong>WHERE CAN PEOPLE SIGN THE EUROPEAN CITIZENS&#39; INITIATIVE FOR BASIC INCOME?</strong></p> <p> We&#39;re doing this crowdfunding thingy so we could collect a million signatures, and here&#39;s where you can point your friends who are completely new to basic income:&nbsp;<a href="http://sign.basicincome2013.eu/" target="_blank">http://sign.basicincome2013.eu/</a>&nbsp;-&gt; every online signature is a personal vote against poverty and negative consequences of un(der)employment.</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> <strong>FOLLOW OUR UPDATES, INTERESTING NEWS AND LINKS ON OUR FACEBOOK AND TWITTER</strong></p> <p> <a href="https://www.facebook.com/ECI.BasicIncome" target="_blank">https://www.facebook.com/ECI.BasicIncome</a></p> <p> <a href="https://twitter.com/basicincomeEU" target="_blank">https://twitter.com/basicincomeEU</a></p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> Thank you for your ongoing support!</p>

<p> <img alt="Crowdfunding-goal-reached-en" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/48718/crowdfunding-goal-reached-en.jpg" /></p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p class="p1"> Wow... that was fast!</p> <p class="p2"> &nbsp;</p> <p class="p3"> We&#39;ve just reached our target of 15,000&euro;, thanks to the generosity of more than 240 people - not only from Europe but around the world. We knew you would help us, but speed of your response went far beyond our expectations. Many thanks to all who donated and helped promote this campaign!</p> <p class="p4"> &nbsp;</p> <p class="p3"> Now that we&#39;ve secured our target amount, we can start work on how to implement the ECI promotion plan. This will save time and allow us to concentrate our efforts on the most important thing: converting this money into awareness and signatures.</p> <p class="p4"> &nbsp;</p> <p class="p3"> <b>You can still donate!</b></p> <p class="p4"> &nbsp;</p> <p class="p4"> &nbsp;</p> <p class="p3"> Even though we&#39;ve reached the original goal, this crowdfunding campaign will carry on until the deadline set at the start:<b>6pm Wednesday November 20th</b>. Any extra money will be invested in the European basic income movement. If we reach 25,000&euro;, this would enable us to produce audiovisual material to help build this movement over the longer term, throughout Europe and beyond.</p>
