Detriot Would Buy That for Fifty Thousand Dollars

Some philanthropic causes inspire people to get involved with their time and money in hopes of having a positive and lasting impact on someone less fortunate.

Others inspire people to fund a statue honoring a fictional cyborg:

On a list of Detroit’s biggest problems, the lack of a statue honoring RoboCop would seem to rank rather low.

Yet in a city where some of the most prominent buildings have sat vacant for decades and booting a scandal-plagued mayor out of office took eight months, raising $50,000 to produce and install a 7-foot-tall iron replica of the crime-fighting cyborg was accomplished in a mere six days.

Good fund-raising is where you find it.
