Kickstarter is the worlds leading online crowdfunding tool, which is the newest way for people to and projects looking for funding to connect. Through small donations that people pledge on the Kickstarter website projects can get funded. The owner of the project launches a campaign which describes the project and the amount of money they are trying to raise. By the end of the time line (usually about 30 days) if the project receives the goal amount or more then the project gets funded. If they come up short then all the money pledged is returned to the backer and the project receives no money. It's the cool new way for people to be part of something bigger and be able to say they helped make it happen.
