The Statue of Liberty still stands on the base funded by Pulitzer's efforts

Happy birthday, America! CFB  News Archive,  July 4th 2014, As the Statue of Liberty was shipped from France, efforts to raise funds for its pedestal stalled. But thanks to a newspaper campaign and the small donations of hundreds of residents, the base was eventually built. Rodrigo Davies, a researcher at the Center for Civic Media at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, explores America’s first major crowdfunding project. By the summer of 1885 the Statue of Liberty was in New York in pieces, awaiting assembly. Designed by French sculptor Frederic Auguste Bartholdi and paid for by the government of France, the statue was a diplomatic gift…

Invest in next Facebook…for a few bucks

Patrick M. Sheridan | CNN Money | April 14, 2014 – These “investors” rarely expected more in return for their money than T-shirts, a ticket to a movie screening or maybe an early version of a new product. That’s about to change. Companies are starting to view crowdfunding as a legitimate option to raise serious cash.
