What is Kickstarter, anyway? Kickstarter is a really wonderful web-based funding organization that helps creative projects of all kinds get the money they need to do the cool stuff that they envision. Backers like you pledge an amount to the project. If the total amount requested is reached, your pledge is accepted & the money goes to support the project! Plus, you get a reward if you choose one. If the total is not reached, your money just stays in your bank account.
