Adding to the excellent suggestions that have been posted:

To pool money

"I say we all pool our money and buy her a present."

"Let's pool our money and buy Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer." (http://www.iwatchstuff.com/2009/11/lets ... buy_me.php)

People can also pool resources, strenght etc., so the expression has a wider range of uses too.

Vaquinha - ou financiamento coletivo. (não está em muitos dicionários...)


Crowdfund


http://pt.bab.la/dicionario/ingles-port ... owdfunding


The story went viral. Outraged at Facebook’s snubbing of a fellow ethical hacker, California security expert Marc Maiffret launched an appeal to the tech community. A former teen hacker who made his name by finding security flaws in Microsoft products, Maiffret is now CTO of BeyondTrust. He contributed the first $3,000 to a GoFundMe campaign to crowdfund a bounty for Shreateh’s Facebook exploit.

Within a day, donors had given more than $10,000. The final amount raised was $13,125 from 303 people across the world, mostly donated in sums of $5 or $10, many with notes congratulating Shreateh and deriding Facebook.

Eu poderia dizer: to pass the hat (round); to have a whip round; to make a kitty; to chip in. Exemplo: If you don’t have the money to buy my book, may I suggest you have a whip round to get at least one copy? You can all chip in. Get a kitty together.
I found this example, but I don't have sure!

To pass the hat round/around to me have a slight more sense of urgency and in my view it´s a collecting of money more like "pedir/passar o chapéu/ficar com o pires na mão", a bit like asking for something that you "have right" like the state governors that go to the federal government to ask for transfer of federal funds, albeit they themselves have transferred taxes revenues to the central government.

Other example would be a soccer team that is in crisis going to the supporters/club members to convince them to give "some extra" money to pay or buy a good soccer player etc.


To have a whip-round - is slangy, many people won´t understand, unless they read the Urban Dictionary. It made to the mainstream media, but it seems to me that is a British word. Also, it have to be characteristically benevolent in nature. It´s also a "vaquinha" but a "vaquinha benevolente"

Thank you man!!

You are welcome, I am glad to be of help and I myself learn a lot from the questions and answers of fellow learners and teachers. ;)

I may be wrong, but I think that crowdfunding is a large "vaquinha", as in a Kickstarter campaign. If it's something smaller, like what you do in your office to help a coworker, for example, I think you can use pool or chip in.

I just want to add that "crowdfunding" is used more to mean fundraising via internet or online fundraising, nowadays.

I don´t know if it will be used (or it has already been used) between people out of the internet. However, in this case to me "chip in" suits it well.

Dourado, it may be or not. Sometimes it will be, sometimes not.
I don´t think Facebook would pay a fortune for a mere glitch, perhaps they receive so many security flaw vulnerabities reporting per month! anyway, in this case it turned out to be an unnexpected ammount, but it wasn´t Facebook that was paying. It got to that sum, out of fellow "hackers" outrageousness.

There's a very nice british expression you can use to say that.. Ex: To club together to do ( something)... we clubbed together to buy a pizza and a soda.. Nós fizemos uma vaquinha pra comprar uma pizza e um refrigerante.. hug

But, PPAULO, in this case it was an internet campaign, just not on Kickstarter, but on GoFundMe. I only see crowdfunding in this case. It's basically yelling: "Hey people! Look how nice my project is! GIMME MONEY!!!" :lol: When it's something smaller, like Leroy's example, you don't say crowdfunding.

Yup, in this case the word isn´t used.
