Hi there!
Cameron here.

So what is "My Basic Income" (MBI) about?
MBI is dedicated to creating and exploring Basic Income in the USA and in the world. In short, eradicating poverty and enabling everyone, everywhere to pursue their highest calling.

We will do this by raising awareness and support for the idea through sweepstakes where we give away year-long Basic Incomes to winners of any kind, sparking conversation, enthusiasm, engagement and support for Basic Income.

Why sweepstakes? Because sweepstakes are the most powerful way to generate word of mouth. Companies of all kinds carry them out every year. In our case, the winner will experience the very thing we are advocating, and the possibility of winning (go sign up here, now) makes the discussion real, rather than hypothetical.

What is Basic Income (BI)?
BI the idea that everyone, everywhere should receive a regular payment of cash to cover basic needs, regardless of who they are, whether they have a job or not, and regardless of any other typical criteria used to ascribe eligibility for services.

This idea has the power to eradicate or positively impact a broad range of societal problems, everything from poverty, to spousal abuse, to crime, to childhood hunger has some roots in economic insecurity - ensuring a basic income for all people would go a long way to solving these problems.

BI is an old idea which has broad support from across the political and geographic spectrum, with pilot programs already executed in places like Canada and India, with parallels in our own pension system, and with new pilot programs in planning in Finland and in Switzerland.

For more information here's a decent primer on the topic by the Washington Post's Christine Emba

What we've already done
We raised our first $15,000 through IndieGogo successfully in January. We have been building our tools and our community to take this project to the next level - growing it to be able to give away 12 Basic Incomes every year - one per month.

Our first sweepstakes giveaway is still open and we are currently schedule to pick a winner at random from our entries on Saturday, April 30th. If you're in town, you should stop by!

What we need you to do
We are already growing public support and awareness for Basic Income and now we need to grow our financial base so we can conduct regular, monthly sweepstakes.

Our first goal is $17,000 in monthly patrons. That amount will allow us to conduct a sweepstakes every month of the year. At this pace we will be able to grow, explore, popularize and generally advocate for Basic Income indefinitely, and at the same time, give a year of BI to a real person in need.

Goals
$13 of $17,000 per month
When we hit $17,000 we'll be able to give away a year long BI of $15,000 (after fees etc.) to one person every single month.

At that clip the movement to eradicate poverty entirely will be well on it's way. Sign up, even for a couple dollars a month, share this with your friends, and let's do this!
