Funding Platform, "Kickstarter.com"

Social entrepreneurs interested in the arts and media, do you need help funding your project? Get on Kickstarter.com now and request an invite.

I found out about the funding platform Kickstarter.com through a friend. The way it works is simple. Someone who needs funding for a project requests an invite (NOTE: Invites are only available to folks with a U.S. address and bank account). Upon receiving an invite, you post about your project and set a deadline for funds. People from anywhere around the world can pledge to your project. If you receive enough pledges by the deadline to fund your project, the folks who pledged will get a charge on their credit card for the amount they pledged. If your project does not meet the deadline, the pledges will NOT get charged. That simple.

For more information be sure to check out their website.
