Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian and GM Erik Martin are running a $40,000 Indiegogo campaign to fund a bus trip across part of the country (from Kentucky to Denver) in order to talk about the Open Web this political season. The trip aims to “host meetups, highlight candidates who support free and open Internet, get people to sign up to vote, [and] feature local tech jobs.”
The trip is from Denver, CO to Danville, KY AKA “from the site of the First Presidential Debate to the site of the First VP Debate.”
The group is asking Redditors to recommend stops and the company is putting up some of the costs including bus rental and gas.
Donations start at $5 and for $404 you can have your name printed on the bus. The effort will run for 27 more days and has already raised $625.
