• British shoe seller tries to crowdfund Greek bailout


    LONDON: A British shoe shop worker launched an online crowdfunding campaign to raise the money for Greece to meet its now expired IMF debt repayment, saying he just wanted to help austerity-stricken Greeks. Thom Feeney told AFP outside his shop in London’s Covent Garden that he had been overwhelmed by the response and the messages of support, raising over 451,000 euros ($502,000) by 2330 GMT on Tuesday after just two days.
