The 10 Biggest Kickstarter Projects Ever

Do you know what are the biggest Kickstarter projects? Insider Monkey made a posting about "The 10 Biggest Kickstarter Projects Ever" for us to have an idea about them. 

Over the years, Kickstarter has helped fund an impressive number of projects from a diverse variety of fields: films, video games, journalism, the food industry, comics, music, and so on. The concept is very easy: someone comes up with a project idea, chooses a deadline, and a funding goal. People then donate money to the project, in return for a tangible reward, other than financial profit. If the funding goal is not reached within the deadline imposed by the project creator, the funds are not collected.

Notable people and projects have gained success as a result of their collaboration with Kickstarter: musicians Daniel Johnston, Amanda Palmer, and Stuart Murdoch, actors Colin Hanks, Whoopi Goldberg and Matthew Modine, and many others. We would like to present you with a top ten list of the biggest Kickstarter campaigns in history, based on the funds raised, in a style similar to our coverage of the world's fastest growing companies. You may visit Insider Monkey for more details about the biggest Kickstarter projects.
