[GlobalType] needs your help

Lars Kähler's picture

Hello everybody!

You may know about GlobalType. It’s the world’s largest collection of typeface data. For a technical update of the Typo3 based website I need 520,– €. I can give 100,– € by myself, and my provider will support the update with another 80,– €. So I need 340,– €.

Could somebody here imagine to help me in this case?

technical update

What exactly does that mean?

The underlying CMS system of the website needs to be updated because of security reasons. I can’t do this by myself.

Do you have a Kickstarter allergy?

Kickstarter isn’t available in Germany.

They charge for security updates? Time to switch to a different CMS.

Sounds like you need a US partner.

Why would that matter? One could always transfer the funds.

I think it’s not necessary to use Kickstarter or any other fundraising solution to collect an amount of money like this. You could pay some money on my PayPal account. 340,– €, that’s ~ 454,– US-$. I will tell you about the banking connection.

Here’s the PayPal button, directly at the start page of my project:

I’ve received 200,– € by now. So I need another 320,– € to fulfil the update. If you can imagine to do something for me, feel free to use that button. ;-) You may use any currency you prefer.

Later this year there will come a new logo and web design.

But if you use Kickstarter you might actually end up with much more than you asked for! :-)

That said: donation coming up (although it might not be much).

Okay, I don’t have got any problems to use Kickstarter. Could I use somebody’s banking account inside US for this purpose?

No. The update itself is for free, as Typo3 is in general (GNU licence). But I can’t do this by myself, so I need the help of a Typo3 coder. I’ve got an offer about 520,– €. I have collected 200,– € by now and I need another 320,– € ( 418,163 US-$ ) to complete my mission.

This is all I need in the moment. There will be a new logo and web design, but I get this for free from a colleague. There will be no expensive relaunches. Maybe later.

Now, I’ve got the money I need for the update of the CMS. Thanks a lot!

Non-US alternative to Kickstarter is IndieGoGo.
