One thing to point out is that kickstarter is not a platform to request donations. Kickstarter is a way to raise capital by pre-selling things.

I think they need to spring for a 50-cent hairnet for their employee. But I don't know much about cheese making; maybe the hairs add structure.

I did not hear a "Thank you" to the folks who funded this operation.

From Kickstarter website

Do backers get ownership or equity in the projects they fund?
No. Project creators keep 100% ownership of their work. Kickstarter cannot be used to offer financial returns or equity, or to solicit loans.

Some projects that are funded on Kickstarter may go on to make money, but backers are supporting projects to help them come to life, not financially profit.

Suckers, like farms net local backing, all taxpayers support farms.
