This is why I wanted to make Dropcash. Tom of WSMF is raising money to buy some wireless routers to put on top of some apartments to provide free wireless access as part of The Personal Telco Project.

Sure, Tom could have thrown up a link directly to PayPal and started collecting money that way, updating the campaign's progress on his site when he could. But now there's a landing page for his campaign so people can keep checking in on the progress in real-time, and that is pretty cool.
