Greece is not doing well financially at the moment, to put it mildly. The country is broke and can’t repay their IMF loan, which is due tomorrow. So some folks are trying to help bail the country out in the way that the internet loves best: A silly crowdfunding campaign!

The Indiegogo campaign was started by a British man who is trying to raise €1.6 billion, or about $1.8 billion. What do you get for tossing Greece a few euros?

From Indiegogo:

Pledge €3 and get a postcard sent from Greece of Alex Tsipras, the Greek Prime Minister. We’ll get them made and posted in Greece and give a boost to some local printers and post offices. Maybe the odd will write Efharisto on it for you.

Pledge €6 and get a greek Feta and Olive salad

Pledge €10 and get a small bottle of Ouzo sent to you

Pledge €25 and get a bottle of Greek wine

How much have they raised so far? Just €526. It’s unclear how the money would be delivered to Greece should it reach its goal, but honestly we don’t think they’re going to have that problem.
