This week's collection of crowdfunding projects includes a rocketman comedy, and a worthy cause with a Star Wars
As well as being a launch pad for original ideas from untested talent, the crowdfunding phenomenon also has an additional, perhaps even more worthwhile service to offer: providing a source of funds for worthy causes.
Our policy of focusing on specifically geek-friendly projects means we can't often cover these in our weekly posts, but one Kickstarter campaign we stumbled on this week managed to be both nerdy and supremely worthwhile: a Star Wars
day for the visually impaired and disabled. It's a great idea that we hope does well - and inspires similar events elsewhere in the UK and abroad.
Rocketmen: The Webseries
A comedy web series about the boredom of being a rocket-powered crime fighter rather than the exhilaration, Webster Crowell
's Rocketmen looks like a quirky treat.
