For those of you looking for the Crowdfunding plugin sourcecode. I added 
this to my Github repos a few months back. The last commit from the 
original repo was from 23rd april. If anyone has a newer version, let me 
know, but for now you'll at least have access to the sourcecode.


ps: I'm not planning to maintain this plugin, just sharing it as a 
courtesy to fellow developers.
