DropCash: instant fundraising sites

DropCash is a new service from Jason Kottke and Andre Torrez, two of my favorite Web-dudes. DropCash has the ingenious simplicity of all of Torrez's projects: sign up, enter your TypeKey identity and a fundraising target and click "create" and hey-presto, you've got a fundraising site where anyone with PayPal and TypeKey can contribute -- and watch the progress-bar move toward your money goal. Boogah notes that you could use this to coordinate buying someone a birthday gift, but it'd also be great for Back to Iraq-like stunts, where a blogger raises some bread to go do something and chronicle it on her site.
