I donated to this, and mentioned it on Facebook (and maybe Twitter, too) but I also wanted to post it here because I think it's totally awesome.
Basically, you can donate some money to fund this guy's video project—he's making a movie from a Neil Gaiman story, and Neil totally supports this, and what the guy has done so far is so beautiful and perfect it makes me shiver.
As someone who works in a creative industry, I also think Kickstarter is a fantastic idea in general!
Please give if you can! (Ooh, maybe give in someone's name as a holiday present?!)
