The City of Philadelphia has a question for you: What project would you be willing to invest your own money in?
Last week, the city became part of a new crowd-funding platform called "Citizinvestor," a website that allows you to support or pledge to a civic project. Local governments, including Philadelphia, can submit pre-approved projects to the website. Residents can then invest in the pro ejects that interest them the most.
"Crowdfunding is an innovative way for individuals to directly fund civic projects," Mayor Michael Nutter told the city's blog.
According to the post, the city's first funding project to use Citizinvestor is "TreePhilly," a fall planting campaign that has a fundraising goal of $12,875.
According to the Citizinvestor website, TreePhilly has raised $1,240 with 54 days remaining as of Monday morning.
Rain moved in Saturday afternoon and the chance for it will stick around through the seven day forecast.
It becomes very unsettled across our area with clounds and showers again Sunday. The best chance for rain is in the morning and afternoon thunderstorms are possible towards our south.
Sunday is cool but we do warm up well into the 80s by Tuesday. With the warm weather comes a better chance for thunderstorms.
