Didn't I tell you this at the time?

Since then, I have come across one site,, which offers
a way to send money bypassing the nonfree JS code.  That makes it
better than the others.  I urge people to choose for
future campaigns.

The problem is that it takes *months* to prepare a proper crowdfunding
campaign. So if you didn't suggest crowdsupply to me back at the
hackfest, it was simply *too late* to be reasonably actionable (despite
that I might agree it would be a good idea).

I hadn't realized others had used indiegogo to crowdfund for your travel
though. Were there lessons learned from that we should know about?
