RocketHub enables direct-to-fan social media-based outreach and fundraising. Project leaders, i.e., fundraisers, publicize campaigns themselves through Facebook, Twitter and similar platforms. When posting a campaign, users choose a campaign deadline, target funding-goal, and offer perks in exchange for contributions.
Broadly, RocketHub shares similarities with platforms such as Kickstarter, Sellaband, and Pledgemusic, however if the selected funding target is not reached by the deadline, the project leader is still able to keep the collected funds. RocketHub charges 4% of funds collected, plus 4% payment processing fees, if the project is fully funded, and 8% plus 4% payment processing fees if the project does not reach its goal.
PLASTIC WASTE - Poses more of a risk to marine life than sushi bars. Fish and marine mammals are developing cancerous growths. It's too early to be able to say plastic waste is to blame, but something is causing this phenomenon and plastic waste is reaching high saturation levels. Fish stocks are at an all time low. If not for diesel fuel subsidies, fish would be off the menu, because ships could not afford to travel as far as they do now to find a reasonable harvest. The Global Ocean Commission and other agencies are looking for ways to combat these problems. We can only help with ocean pollution if our research is supported.

Where proposals are invited for commercial zero carbon craft, concerning polluted oceans and plastic waste, we are more than interested in collaborating at cost with academics and industry to produce an ocean going vacuum cleaner that we have codenamed Project SeaVax.
