The Digital Age’s Piggy Bank
Many of us take the time to save up for things; whether it be a vacation, website, car, weekend at a beach house, or even something as small as a party. Sure we have savings accounts these days, or some of us still even use a jar at home and throw in whenever we have some extra cash around. With all of the different methods money gets moved around, between debit cards and transfers, it is pretty rare to stumble across cash these days. Maybe the old piggy bank is really almost completely obsolete. Plus, how many times do you go back in there because you need some extra cash, not exactly the highest success rate.
I came across CrowdTilt and could not help but notice how brilliant the concept is. It is more for group funding, meaning, the monetary goal is usually for a group event, or common goal. Something like, "Mardi Gras Party House", or "Jessica's Baby Shower Gift". Anyway, in the simplest terms, here are the three steps to get your idea off of the ground. The main concept here is, if a certain monetary goal isn't reached no cards from the group of people involved are charged.

If the campaign tilts, the cards are charged, and you get the funds!
