Indeed. Indiegogo keeps 9% of the total, since I didn't reach my goal. If I had reached it, which wasn't terribly likely in the first place, they'd have only kept 4%. I could have probably picked a smaller goal, but OH WELL, RANDY. OH GOD DAMNED WELL.
Yeah the thing about these campaigns is except when there really is a hard set budget--like for example to go into production on a new kind of consumer product--it seems to me like the smart play would be to set the bar really low and just add better incentives for donating above the amount you're explicitly requesting.

So far, the total is $3695, which is already way more than I thought would be raised. It's also a pretty good chunk of change: a little more than 1/5th of my goal and a great starting point for me. I still have to budget pretty tightly but even that is better than where I would be otherwise.
Alma, in moments like this every penny counts. I'm glad I was able to help. I wish you a speedy recovery and the chance to reach all the goals in life that you were aiming for before you got sidetracked.
