A word about crowd-funding, it is not just about money (although it is about the money). It is about the connections that people have with the project they care about.
It is about the people, each and every single one of them, making something possible.
They, through their individual small “pledges”, make a project (a book, a song, a film, a creative endeavour) possible.
P.S. A great way of funding, I hope something like this will launch in Canada soon. Currently according to their site, “Due to current Amazon Payments policy, projects can only be started by people or entities with a U.S. address and bank account.”
