id never give a dollar
id either give a reasonable amount of money because i believe in the product on offer or i'd just not give anything because i dont care there is no middle ground here


Maybe that's where charities are going wrong asking for $1 a month or whatever, perhaps they should concentrate on a lower number of hardcore believers.

Agreed with ichi

If you donate a decent chunk you usually get the first edition of the product in question, too, and usually at a less-than-retail price.

As for charities idk I don't tend to set up automatic payments. If I were to I'd probably do it proper as well.

I'd keep the money and buy myself some haribo

Charity starts at home or something
I have nothing important to say

Why would using crowdfunding differ from any other method of donating to something you'd give a dollar to?

You may as well just ask why would you give a dollar to someone.

"Crowdfunding" implies that you get something in return for your money, as opposed to a donation to charity.
In that case, I'd pay $1 for a product or service that I believe to be worth $1.

i never donate money, unless im getting something in return

like i'll paypal you 5 bucks if you let me read your new book / have full digital copy of your album, etc

(i have done this with small time youtubers in the past, because like i said, i'll only pay for content)

Maybe someone suffering from cancer who can't pay. Only ones I've given to so far. In fact, if you wanna hustle $1 out of me, that's what you do.

There was an oldish black guy around 45/50 who got $100,000 or more towards buying a car, because he walked 21 miles to work every day. If he's working every day, surely he could buy a crappy car just by saving a small amount of money. Cheap bastard. And also it wasn't even him doing the crowdfunding, it's always some teenage white kid. I wonder if they actually force the person to the use the money in the way it was intended. Surely it's fraud if not?

Probably nothing. I know people in person who could do with financial assistance and causes I care about that I can volunteer my time to. I would rather help them.
