Have you heard of Kickstarter? It's a crowdsourced funding website where anyone can pitch their innovative idea for an art project, film, computer program, company, or any other creative project to the internet and get small amounts of funding that add up to big bucks -- it takes a village to make a project! You get rewards, too, based on your level of donation.
• Fueled by Fries: Get Snap's Biodiesel Food Truck on the Road: I donated $20 to this project to retrofit a food truck to run on its own used cooking oil (such a smart idea!) and if the project is funded, come summer I'll get a coupon for their organic hot dogs and fries! (They even use Rick's Picks relish, which have been featured in our Shop.)
