Crowdfunding , Entertainment

Kickstarter is a crowdfunding platform. The company's stated mission is to help bring creative projects to life. Kickstarter claims it has received over $1 billion in pledges from 5.7 million donors to fund 135,000 projects, such as films, music, stage shows, comics, journalism, video games, and food-related projects. People who back Kickstarter projects are offered tangible rewards and special experiences in exchange for their pledges. This model traces its roots to subscription model of arts patronage, where artists would go directly to their audiences to fund their work.

If you've got a few spare bucks of disposable hanging out in your bank account and a desire to help a start-up? Then Kickstarter is the place for you.

With all of the creative minds out there trying to find a way to fund their projects, this site will lead you to literally anything you can think of. Whether you're looking to help an artist raise money for an art installation, donate a few dollars to a non-profit organization, or lend a hand to a team of developers making the next big thing in the world of indie video games, it's all there.

As an added bonus, the more you donate, the better you're rewarded for your help with their incentives, which are located on the side of the screen. Because, let's be honest, who doesn't want a little extra swag while helping someone else out?

So go find it in your heart to hear some of the pitches on the site. From my experience, I've come away from donating feeling like I'm helping independent businesses instead of big chains, and felt damned good doing it.

The beauty and power of Kickstarter is that the demand and desire and ideas already exist...and kicksterter just bring everyone together into a big fun event to pull it off.

I love the ability to support my favorite projects with minimal risk to the creators.

So many projects would otherwise be impossible without crowdfunding.

I love it!

Thought this was a site to learn Karate.

It is not.

Does anyone want to fund my pilot?

As an Englishman I find the content not just incredibly interesting but also very fulfilling as I learn the historical origins of the words, grammar and syntax that I use - almost without thinking - every day. It's given me a real insight into my own culture and the way that I communicate with ot...

Love the History of English podcast and its website. The maps are great and the audio samples, like the Gregorian chants or "Sumer Is Icumen In" add so much to an already terrific podcast.

I also bought from the website the Beowulf audiobook, which was terrific, and my husband boug...

Very much enjoy The History of Byzantium podcast and website. I like the maps on the site and the ability to buy special episodes from the site.

I wish there was an easier way to get to specific episodes, or at least specific maps. Still, the site is so much better than many simil...

too many spam sites and broken links displayed, they need to clean up the search results other than traffic-related sites displayed on the first page. how about they request additional info at the search text entry.
