Over 13,000 people chip in to save historic French chateau
The Chateau de la Mothe-Chandeniers has had many owners since its construction in the 13th century. Now more so than ever. Over 13,000 strangers have recently banded together to save the fairytale home—which features turrets, towers, and a sizable moat—from decay and destruction. A crowdfunding campaign running on the French site Dartagnans has raised more than €1.1 million ($1.3 million) to date for the structure’s preservation, with every contributor becoming a part owner of the historic home.
