helps travelers crowdfund their global adventures.
Cost: Varies depending on whether you have a fixed or flexible funding campaign. There's also a PayPal fee (the method used to collect donations).
What's hot: I love that many of the trips are purpose-driven. Your "funding campaign" is placed in a category such as "Charity and Volunteering," "Education and Research," "Music and Arts," "Meaningful" and more. Don't worry; if you're using the website to solicit funds for your postgraduation round-the-world romp, there are categories for you too, such as "Backpacking and Hiking" and "Adventure and Sport." Unique trips get more attention. I was drawn to campaigns such as "20 Cities in 50 Days in a Wheelchair," in which two men are trying to raise $6,000 in order to fund researching and writing a guide to wheelchair-accessible travel in 20 major U.S. cities. I also liked "Schlepping Stethoscopes: A Himalayan Medical Trek," which is trying to raise $20,000 to bring medical care and supplies to villagers in India.
