Hello all,
It has been an incredible few weeks on  (http://bellingcat.us8.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=2e7a6b84febfe5c4092b34b44&id=bd47c29043&e=71e571d1d5) Kickstarter (http://bellingcat.us8.list-manage.com/track/click?u=2e7a6b84febfe5c4092b34b44&id=06aed5a041&e=71e571d1d5) , where we are raising funds for Bellingcat (http://bellingcat.us8.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=2e7a6b84febfe5c4092b34b44&id=2e39ef1210&e=71e571d1d5) .

Bellingcat is a new site that will bring together both critically acclaimed and emerging citizen investigative journalists using open source information to investigate, collaborate, and report on worldwide issues that are being underreported and ignored.

Here is a video where I discuss the importance of open source information. This is what we hope to teach others through Bellingcat: http://bellingcat.us8.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=2e7a6b84febfe5c4092b34b44&id=e47429c148&e=71e571d1d5

Through Bellingcat we have been breaking news about MH17 and more. Check out what people have been saying about us since we launched our Kickstarter:
In the frenzy to determine who — and what — shot down Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, a group of citizen journalists armed with simple intuition and an Internet connection has been collecting information more nimbly than American spies – Mashable (http://bellingcat.us8.list-manage2.com/track/click?u=2e7a6b84febfe5c4092b34b44&id=4d080917e0&e=71e571d1d5)

Brown Moses citizen journalism site offers an antidote to Internet fakes. – Vice (http://bellingcat.us8.list-manage.com/track/click?u=2e7a6b84febfe5c4092b34b44&id=8f54650125&e=71e571d1d5)

I would recommend [journalists] look at a website started by auto-didact weapons expert Eliot Higgins. – Channel 4 (http://bellingcat.us8.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=2e7a6b84febfe5c4092b34b44&id=7c22e29d9e&e=71e571d1d5)

[Eliot] has become an oft-cited source for Western journalists covering the conflict – National Journal (http://bellingcat.us8.list-manage.com/track/click?u=2e7a6b84febfe5c4092b34b44&id=b8f588bfe4&e=71e571d1d5)

For those who have donated, THANK YOU. We have reached 75% of our goal with just over ONE week left, and are overwhelmed by the support.

If you have not yet donated, please do (http://bellingcat.us8.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=2e7a6b84febfe5c4092b34b44&id=9947d8d57d&e=71e571d1d5) . If all of you donate £5.57 right now, we will hit the goal.

We are hoping to hit £47,000 by August 11 at 12AM ET. If you are one of the backers to get us there, we will invite you to an exclusive two-hour Google Hangout where you can ask Eliot whatever you want.

For those who have requested not to use Amazon Payments, you can transfer funds through PayPal. Just send your donation to brownmoses at gmail.com and we will add the funds to Kickstarter for you on our end.

Please join us in trying to change the way we investigate and report the news.

Thank you,
Eliot
