A kickstart to Hannah

Have you ever heard of
 I hadn't...until today.

Kickstarter is new and brilliant way to fund creative projects. It's a long story to explaine every aspect of the concept, but if you have a look at this you will know more.

Kickstarter is the world's largest funding platform for creative projects. Every week, tens of thousands of amazing people pledge millions of dollars to projects from the worlds ofmusicfilmarttechnologydesignfoodpublishing and other creative fields.
A new form of commerce and patronage. This is not about investment or lending. Project creators keep 100% ownership and control over their work. Instead, they offer products and experiences that are unique to each project.
All or nothing funding. On Kickstarter, a project must reach its funding goal before time runs out or no money changes hands. Why? It protects everyone involved. Creators aren’t expected to develop their project without necessary funds, and it allows anyone to test concepts without risk.
Each and every project is the independent creation of someone like you. Projects are big and small, serious and whimsical, traditional and experimental. They’re inspiring, entertaining and unbelievably diverse. We hope you agree... Welcome to Kickstarter!
Thanks! All done.

In short you donate an amount of money of your own choice in order to help a person make his or her dream project come true. And you get something in return besides the pleasure of helping.
I decided to be a backer on Hannah Stevenson's paperdoll project. I have followed her blog Lily & Thistle for a long time, and already knew her amazing handdrawn and customized paperdolls. She sells them through her shop Minime.

Now she had a dream of making her own book with paperdolls, and that luckily seems to fullfilled through Kickstarter and a lot of hard work.

You still a chance to help Hannah. You can donate money for the next 50 hours.

Or maybe you would like to have a look at some of the many other projects on Kickstarter? Or perhaps you have a dream project yourself, which you need some help to carry out....
