Hi, I've just stumbled upon your fundraising and I was wondering why not to use Kickstarter.
http://www.kickstarter.com/

A lot of technology projects have used it with success:

Hopefully you can make use of it!

Kickstarter is sadly US only :(

"Am I eligible to start a Kickstarter project?

To be eligible to start a Kickstarter project, you need to satisfy the requirements of Amazon Payments:

Be a permanent US resident and at least 18 years of age with a Social Security Number (or EIN), a US bank account, US address, US state-issued ID (driver�s license), and major US credit or debit card."

Apigy Inc. open sourced a crowd funding platform after being rejected by Kickstarter.

Personally I would love one day to have a desktop Linux system running OpenRISC. I would be willing to help with a crowd funding campaign.

there are ways round that - the process has been described by an australian. you set up a company - that gives you the S/S/N. you register for a pay-as-you-go visa/mastercard, that gives you the credit card. you go to the U.S., walk into a bank, give them the S/S/N and the credit card, that allows you to open up a bank account. you register a P.O. Box with the company name. you then give the S/S/N, bank account, credit card, address and company name to Amazon, and you're done.

btw - they've opened up UK payments recently as well.
