I learned about Kickstarter today. A cool way to help all kinds of artists support their dreams, goals and visions.
A friend of mind was looking for support for a project he's doing (see above). What's cool is you can support this project with any amount of money, yes, even $1. I think that's fantastic.
Anyway, I am a "backer" of the project and have browsed through kickstarter to see what other projects are going on. In a time when we are watching the arts being cut, I find myself wanting to support other artists (call it a volunteer tax) and this may be a way to do it.
