people pitch great ideas to improve their community and gather funding for the projects. If a project reaches its funding goal over a certain time frame, just like on Kickstarter, the project gets the pledged money. If not, the project dies.

The site, which launched last December, has already successfully raised enough money to pay for a new community center in Wales. This particular project had 96 percent of the necessary funding but needed the rest by March 30 before grants expired. The project got the money needed and can move forward with the project. Other projects that are hoping to get funding include: a roundabout with a performance stage; a puppy playground; and a rooftop aquaponic farm in London.
