Monument of Love Failed to Hit Crowdfunding Goal, Starts Over

Lovemark in VeniceThe Lovemark Monument of Love was supposed to raise $175,000 just in time for Valentines Day 2014.  Unfortunately the $175,000 target was a bit too steep and the project fell far short raising raising only $47,005.

Fearing momentum was not quite there, the campaign organizers made a strategic change and re-launched the crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo on February 12 (before the first campaign officially ended on the 15th) and set a more reasonable target.

On the first campaign a respectable 392 individuals contributed to the iconic architectural project.  The new campaign – that has a goal of raising just $1000 – has already seen 83 backers support the cause.

The Lovemark is the “World’s first crowdfunded monument to Love”.

The team behind the project was a global gathering of believers. Architects, designers, engineers and more.  The organizers stated;

This campaign acts as the next step to our Lovemark effort.  The first campaign, despite not reaching it’s romantic goal of $175,000, gathered great momentum and lots of love from its supporters.

We are committed to make Lovemark happen!
