Gluten-Free on Kickstarter
Have you heard of Kickstarter yet? It's a cool website that helps fund creative projects. People from across the country post projects that they are putting their heart and soul into. All they need is some help from you and your wallets. Kickstarter lets strangers (and friends) help fund these projects in a cool way. People donate money to your project but the financial goals must be met or no money is exchanged. Sadly, many projects fail to be fully funded, but often the projects are a success and some awesome businesses are started with help from you.

More about Kickstarter:

Kickstarter is the world's largest funding platform for creative projects. Every week, tens of thousands of amazing people pledge millions of dollars to projects from the worlds of music, film, art, technology, design, food, publishing and other creative fields.
A new form of commerce and patronage. This is not about investment or lending. Project creators keep 100% ownership and control over their work. Instead, they offer products and experiences that are unique to each project. 
All or nothing funding. On Kickstarter, a project must reach its funding goal before time runs out or no money changes hands. Why? It protects everyone involved. Creators aren’t expected to develop their project without necessary funds, and it allows anyone to test concepts without risk.

I have been looking into Kickstarter a lot lately with thoughts of a project that has been brewing for a while now. I'm not quite ready to post about it yet, but when I do you will read about it here first! In the meantime, there are 7 active gluten-free related projects on Kickstarter looking for funding. This includes a project for artisanal ice creams and desserts started by Catherine of A Gluten-Free Guide. Catherine is one of the very first people I met in the NYC Celiac community way back in 2004. Catherine's gluten-free travels and photographs of her food have always been inspiring and delicious so I am sure that Luca and Bosco will be nothing less than amazing.
