Scott said in a Sunday email. The purpose has really been to either expose the hypocrisy of GFM for blocking campaigns for our clients or to see if they stay consistent. ADF attorneys represent Barronelle Stutzman, owner of Arlenes Flowers, whose crowdfunding campaign was removed a week ago by GoFundMe after complaints from gay-marriage advocates. Ms. Stutzman is facing a civil damages award for refusing to provide services for a same-sex wedding. GoFundMe also removed the campaign on behalf of Sweet Cakes by Melissa, whose owners Aaron and Melissa Klein are looking at a proposed $135,000 damages award for declining to bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple. We do respect the right of GFM to set their own term and conditions, but buckling to people like those who are trying to utterly obliterate Barronelle Stutzman and Aaron and Melissa Klein for merely having different beliefs is appalling, said Mr. Scott .

An A-2-z On Primary Issues In Crowdfunding

My money is on drastically reduced fees since Pebble could have easily gone it alone. Other projects that had great campaigns this quarter include Sondros and Zano . These two raised $4.7 million and $3.5 million respectively as of March 31. From a category perspective, clearly wearables had a banner quarter but lets see how others fared: The accessory (devices that plug into computers, cellphones, tablets, etc.) and home (devices used for security, cooking, cleaning, etc.) crowdfunding categories both performed strong in Q1 with a total of 42 projects raising $15.6 million.
