Anonymous said: I got a question about potato salad guy. He said he could not donate the extra money due to kickstarter's policies, but couldn't he have added a stretch goal stating 'such and such money will go to charity x' at some point after the thing ballooned out of control but before it ended?
Nope. Kickstarter rules expressly prohibit fundraising for charity and financial incentives. A stretch goal to donate extra money to charity, or a reward tier that involved part of your money going to charity, would be no effectively different from just straight up asking for that money from the get-go.
It’s going to be interesting to see how he follows through after the thing ends. I’m hoping he just takes the money and runs.
