What: A new way to fund creative projects. They founders believe that:

• A good idea, communicated well, can spread fast and wide. 
• A large group of people can be a tremendous source of money and encouragement.

Kickstarter is powered by a unique all-or-nothing funding method where projects must be fully-funded or no money changes hands. When you back a project you “check out” via Amazon, but the best part is that you are not charged unless the project is fully funded so your risk is minimal!

When: When you are feeling philanthropic, creative or want some inspiration!


Why: Project creators inspire people to open their wallets by offering smart, fun, and tangible rewards (products, benefits, and experiences). Some of the rewards include a mention on their website, jewelry, and more!
