The British shoe salesman Thom Feeney has started a fundraising campaign on social media to help the Greeks, and you won't believe your eyes.
- I think Europeans can help the Greeks faster than politicians can. If every EU citizen contributes 3.19 euro each, we have collected the amount required to pay Greece's debt says Feeney.
Feeney who works in a shoe store in Covent Garden, was surprised by the huge response. To date, Feeney has raised over 753,000 euros through the fundraising Greek Bailout Fund Project.
It is of course not enough for Greece to pay approximately 1.6 billion euros in repayments to the IMF.
But during seven days, Feeney will attempt to raise the total amount.
- I hope we can raise it all. It would be wonderful, says Feeney.
On Wednesday morning more than 44,500 people had donated to the project via the website Indiegogo. The website received so many visitors that it in periods had technical problems.
To help Feeney succeed, you could donate, or at least share the article to make others aware.
