Kickstarter is the site where people beg strangers for money to fund their "projects," which are usually along the lines of helping a horrible band buy studio time to record a demo, or helping a horrible filmmaker finish his mumblecore short about veganism. That kind of begging needs to take place in an arena where you can forget there are things like hunger (ie. The Internet!). If the homeless or genuinely needy find out about it, it could bring the entire site to its knees. No one's going to feel good about helping fund an interpretive breakdance troupe if right underneath it a hurricane victim is requesting money to repurchase her daughter's schoolbooks.
