5 Toronto Indiegogo campaigns to support right now

Crowdfunding is a mixed bag. For every futuristic high-tech bike there's also a litany of ill-conceived ideas that never come to fruition. Lucky for you, we've sorted through the mess that's the Indiegogo Toronto page and picked out projects that deserve your support.

Here are 5 Toronto Indiegogo campaigns worth supporting right now.

The Cocky Vegan
All day breakfast and cruelty-free too? Sign me up. This wanna be vegan breakfast joint from the founders of the Green Smoothie Bar in Hamilton needs money for all the basics to start a restaurant including reclaimed wood tables and a juicer. A $50 contribution gets you an invite to their opening party.

Accidental Parkland
Want to know more about Toronto's vast ravine system? Skip your weekly trip to the Carlton and put $10 to use to help local filmmaker Dan Berman tell the story about a land area in the city that's thirty times the size of Central Park in New York. Spacing co-founder and Toronto Star Columnist Shawn Micallef is already slated to host.

Buzzing Lights: The Book
If you're a fan of vintage signs you're going to want to own this book by local photographer (and former blogTO Editor) Tanja-Tiziana. Chronicling aging and long-gone neon signs from Tiziana's excursions across North America, the book will also include snaps of local luminaries like the Senator, The China House and Sam the Record Man.

The Gratitude Bag
Now here's a good idea - a contribution of just $10 will have the impact of delivering 20 meals to hungry Toronto families. But what's the bag? It's a simple vehicle to gather and contribute non-perishable food items from homes across the city. Just fill the bag, leave it on your porch and volunteers do the rest. Watch the video for more specifics.

Monte & Coe premium handcrafted luggage
Need a stylish weekend bag that's not too pricey but also locally made? Toronto fashion brand Monte & Coe has the answer but needs $20K to make their vision a reality. Get in before the deadline and you might be able to tell your kids how you funded the second-coming of Roots.
