Two great examples of micro-fundraising today. First Andrew Hyde and the folks from StartupWeekend had a goal of $500 to cover dinner for Startup Weekend Boston. Using Crowdfunder he is at $550 with a $200 anonymous donation. For dinner. This is a fund raiser for dinner. Interesting.
So now we can all use our iPhones and chip in for dinner.
On a far loftier scale, we have Beth Kanter’s personal fundraising campaign to send a girl to college.
From a tech perspective and a social perspective, both of these are wonderful occurrences. Fun with money.
