More of a chance to pitch in and help, and maybe score some yummy feta as a thank you.

Thanks for visiting the
"Greek Bailout Fund" campaign page

The Greek Bailout Fund campaign page is experiencing some issues due to its astonishing popularity. It should be back up shortly.

Follow us on Twitter and we'll let you know when it's back up.

Thank you for your patience!

Continuing at the same rate, it will take 3,000 days to reach 1 billion.

Edited to add: Weirdly, the amount has now dropped down to €874,356. Can people rescind pledges?
