MILLIONAIRE TRYING TO RAISE MONEY THROUGH KICKSTARTER TO SEND HER DAUGHTER TO RPG CAMP




Susan Wilson, one of the “Most Powerful Women Entrepreneurs” according to CNN, is usingKickstarter to raise money for her 9 year old daughter’s schooling. The goal is $829, but Kickstarter users have pledged over $21,000.  This is borderline abuse of the Kickstarter system and the whole kicktstart makes use of the current rise of gender issues in video gaming, ‘Men VS. Women’ to populate it self .
The Kickstarter has made a ridiculous amount of money and it’s still racking in some. Luckily nobody has backed using $10,000 pledge *shudders* yet.
Pledge $10,000 or more
ROCK STAR REWARD LEVEL: At this level, you get everything from the previous levels plus a personal apology from her brothers and the satisfaction of knowing that you’ve not only started a career, you’ve also helped to fund future courses in computer programming for her along with more (and better) games!

Estimated delivery: Jul 2013
Looking at the comments section of the Kickstarter, its clear backers are in favor of what Susan is doing – effectively taking advantage of them.
I hope Kickstarter looks into this and does something about it. While not clearly going against the rules, something as trite as a personal goal of sorts should be looked into, especially if it’s run by a millionaire. It’s pretty much the same thing as a somebody else asking for a $1000 for a new camera, or computer they need – it should not be done.
