UN bound! Slowing climate change

$955 of $6,000 goal

Raised by 21 people in 16 months
We are a team of exceptional college students who had the good fortune of meeting eachother and getting involved in MITs SOLVE competition. We devised a way to clean a potent greenhouse gas from the atmosphere in a way that actually financially profits the people who invest in it!

Now that our idea is 1 of 11 finalists, we've been invited to present it to the United Nations in New York City! There, we will hopefully gain the support and resources we need to make our idea come to life, and start slowing the affects of anthropogenic climate change. All we need between now and then is financing for travel and lodging, since we're all just humble college students. 

$6000 will cover airfare for the four of us, and lodging in New York. The sooner we can buy the tickets, the better, but we'd like to have our finances in order by February 28th at the latest! The rest of the funding will go towards our trip to Massachusetts in May, where we will connect with mentors from MIT and industry professionals.
