Crowd funding bid to test malaria drug in cancer

Scientists investigating whether a common malaria drug could have a significant impact on colorectal cancer have launched a crowd funding project to fund their work.

If it does the drug could be used to provide a cheap adjunct to current expensive chemotherapy.

6 Steps to Successful Crowdfunding 

If you're looking to get attention and funding for your business idea, crowdfunding might give you the initial push you need to make your dreams a reality.
Some of the most successful crowdfunding campaigns include the Coolest Cooler, which raised more than $13 million -- or 26,570 percent of its original funding goal -- and Exploding Kittens, which amassed just under $9 million, or 87,825 percent of its initial funding goal.

Crowdfunding to bring back Vodka Mudshake

David Owens, of LTM drinks, is asking Vodka Mudshake lovers to help keep the flow of Mudshake coming in the UK.
The creamy premixed vodka beverage was manufactured by Independent Distillers and was commonplace in UK store’s from 2001-2005. Its production ceased when Independent Distillers owner, New Zealand millionaire Michael Erceg, died in a tragic helicopter crash in November 2005.
David Owens says he has received a mass influx of messages and social media comments, begging him to bring the drink back.
He said: “Everyone loves a mudshake. People were gutted when we had to stop making them and aren’t hesitant in telling me as much!”
David has been successful in finding a retailer; B&M wish to order 4056 cases, however David will need to pay production costs upfront.
