People who support Kickstarter projects get rewards and one of a kind experiences in exchange for their pledges. This model traces its roots to arts patronage, where artists would ask their audiences to fund their work. Project creators choose a deadline and a minimum funding goal. If the goal is not met by the deadline, no money is collected — all or nothing (AoN) model. The platform is open to backers from anywhere in the world.

Macario joined Kickstarter after working for Julia Roberts in a popular Italian tv commercial, shot in three beautiful European places: Scotland, Paris and Florence.
