Have you ever wanted to fund a world changing cause?

My brother told me about KickStarter.com. It is a cool idea.  People pitch their proposals and other people donate money.  KickStarter.com is just the middle man.  There are a lot of interesting projects.  For example here are two from the technology category which interest me:

Final Frontier Design's 3G Space Suit asked for $20,000 to fund the development of a flight certified space suite.  They have already raised $26,471 from 334 backers.

Printrbot: Your First 3D Printer is way over funded with $830,827 from 1,808 backers.  (The original goal was $25,000.)

There are a huge variety of categories:  Art, Comics, Dance, Design, Fashing, Film & Video, Food, Games, Music, Photography, Publishing, Technology, Theater.

If you want to raise some money for a worthwhile project you might consider using KickStarter.com
