What is Kickstarter? Here’s how their FAQ describes how they fund creative projects:
We 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.
This will be my first kickstarter pledge, and I know it won’t be my last!
