crowdfunding

Online fund raising. Crowdfunding over the Internet reaches a huge audience, and billions are raised each year by this method for both small and large projects. For social causes, many more people may donate a couple of dollars to support something they like rather than give $100, $50 or even $25. See Kickstarter and Indiegogo.
