Kickstarter’s founder launches crowdfunding site for charities

Kickstarter’s creator, Perry Chen, wants to tackle a new problem: Fundraising for nonprofits. He’s doing what he does best and is starting a crowdfunding service called Dollar a Day. A new organization is featured on an email newsletter daily, and people who become donors give — spoiler alert — a dollar a day to each program. The purpose is to educate people about the wide range of charities and the issues they support, while simultaneously raising money for said charities.
