Kickstarter: Community Funded Creativity

Kickstarter: Community Funded Creativity

(This is an update to my first post on Kickstarter.)

Everyone has a great idea. Kickstarter is a place “to fund creative ideas and ambitious endeavors.” You can submit your own projects or just help others.

The site is founded on the premise that

  • A good idea, communicated well, can spread fast and wide.
  • A large group of people can be a tremendous source of money and encouragement.
This is another project I wanted to tell you about.
It’s by my friend, the fancy bike writer, organizer, promoter, speaker, and mover, Elly Blue. Elly’s writing a bike zine and going on tour with Microcosm Publishing this summer. In keeping with the small scale nature of zines, Elly is looking for just $350. She raised $250 in the three days since launching the project.
See You Tomorrow, Hopefully is a performance tours that needs just $1100 more to meet their target and receive funding. Why don’t you help them out?

How You Can Help

It is so easy to contribute — you can fund a project with just $5. Even though times are tight, skip that next latte or beer, maybe an unnecessary restaurant trip, or an outfit and you can change someone’s life.

Pass it on.
