My Inch Of The Earth Funds National Park Preservation By Selling Off Virtual Land Deeds

document Tools
Summary By selling off chunks of the Statue of Liberty, Yellowstone National Park and the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore one inch at a time, one website is offering a new way for people to support preservation of our country's greatest attractions.

Virtual chunks, that is.
Description My Inch of the Earth is one of many initiatives of late that uses crowdsourcing, microfunding and social media to fuel nonprofits and community-building projects. They're particularly prevalent in the Detroit area, with organizations like Kiva Detroit's crowdfunded small-business loans, Detroit 4 Detroit's citizen philanthropy, Detroit Soup's meal and fundraising nights and Detroit Big F Deal's community financing platform.
