Kicksaver: Find and save Kickstarter projects ending soon.
Kicksaver finds Kickstarter projects that will end soon without meeting their funding goals. If you have a few dollars to spare, you can help tip a struggling project over its goal and prevent it from losing the pledges made so far. It also tweets endangered projects
a few times a day. This is a weekend project I made as part of my continuing effort to teach myself programming. It's completely noncommercial, open source
, and not affiliated with Kickstarter in any way (although I do think they're pretty great).
You might notice that project funding levels are sometimes out of date: the site will occasionally show a funded project or an inaccurate amount from the project goal. Kicksaver only crawls for new projects a couple times a day, so this happens once in a while, but it shouldn't prevent you from finding interesting projects to rescue.
