New to Kickstarter?
For any of you that are not familiar with Kickstarter or how crowdfunding works, it is pretty simple. There is a funding period for a project (on average, it's 30 days). If the project reaches or surpasses its goal before these 30 days, great! If the project reaches 30 days and doesn't reach its goal, the project is unsuccessful, anyone who backed the project will not get charged anything, no one will receive any rewards.
If the project is successful, at the end of the funding period, Kickstarter sends out surveys to backers and collects the funds that everyone has pledged. (Please keep in mind that the money you pledge is not taken from you the moment you decide to support this Kickstarter campaign. You are only charged if the campaign is successful.)
