Rainbow Warrior

Signaling a bold new direction in NGO fundraising traditions, Greenpeace recently launched a campaign to symbolically sell off pieces of its newest Rainbow Warrior ship, currently under construction in Germany. The third in a fleet of  boats enabling Greenpeace to confront environmental threats from the  frontline (the first was infamously bombed by French intelligence  services in 1985), the ship will cost €22M to build anew, which the  organization is raising through a Monopoly-style sale with buyers names  going on a digital artwork that will sail with the ship.
