One day a year to give to the causes you care about most

WGD Partner: RocketHub

We’re excited to introduce our first partner for World Give Day 2012!

RocketHub is a launchpad and community for independent artists and entrepreneurs.

The crowdfunding site offers an innovative way to raise money and tangible opportunities to take creative products and endeavors to next level. RocketHub is a destination for emerging artists and entrepreneurs, and those who wish to discover and support innovative work.

Here are some stories of users who have found success using RocketHub to launch their dreams:

James Portnow – Seattle-based game designer and co-creator of Extra Credits, a web series on pro-social game design. Extra Credits funded over $125,000 from 4,000 people and was featured at SXSW, on Gamasutra, and on the homepage of Reddit.

Aram Bajakian – NYC-based avant-garde guitar player raised $4,000 from fans and strangers to fund his album. Lou Reed heard Aram and chose him as his new guitarist, while Aram’s album is now released by John Zorn’s Tzadik record label.

Darko Lungulov – Serbia-based award winning filmmaker raised $9,000 from movie buffs for feature film project Here and There. The film won “Best New York Narrative” at Tribeca Film Festival, and was featured in Variety, L.A. Times, and New York Times.

Big shoutout to RocketHub for coming on board to help support World Give Day!
