Crowdsourcing Mornings: Clean Hands – Struggle And Rescue In The Third World


This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

CLEAN HANDS is a feature-length documentary, shot over a 7-year period. It tells a remarkable, true-life story about extreme poverty in the third world, set against family, dreams, and the innocence of children. For our main family, there is a dream-come-true rescue, which gives them a chance at a far better life, followed by some real-life challenges like those we all face. The film is set in Nicaragua, centered on the Lopez family. It is life in the third world as it is so rarely told: the good and the bad, presented with detail and intimacy.

LA CHURECA: When we first meet the Lopez family – mother, father, grandmother, and four children – their survival depends entirely upon combing through wretched refuse for scraps. This is La Chureca, a gigantic garbage dump, at the time the largest in Central America. A thousand people actually lived there among the decrepit sights and smells, scavenging and competing for food, wood, recyclables, and whatever other discarded waste they might be able to somehow use. There is nothing even remotely comparable to La Chureca in the civilized world. It is a desperate, desolate, and dangerous life.

As of September 12th, this project has raised $5,000 of their $50,500 goal. This project has 21 days left to raise the $50,500 or it will not be funded. For a pledge of $6, you will get a screensaver.  For a pledge of $18, you will get a digital download of the film.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/348965025/clean-hands-struggle-and-salvation-in-the-third-wo?ref=home_recommended
