Does anyone know the names of other crowd-funding sites?
I know of a humanitarian non-profit that could use some help with an educational project.
Also, The Pier will have a kickstarter soon I am told.

Does it work?
What does "work" mean in this context, anyway?
How much does it set a project back if the goal isn't achieved?
Or did no one not get to their set goal?
Would you do it again?
Is the offering of gifts (and of different gifts for different levels) sort of mandatory?
Did anyone not use it because of the Amazon connection?
My experience was okay, I supported two projects, both of which achieved their goals. I have a teeshirt and I declined a gift from the other. (which I kinda prefer, because I'd rather that the money went into the project.)
I hate the fact that I'm getting spammed by kickstarter. I mean, come on.
