      I asked for what I thought I could get, but hoped I'd get more. If I'd set a higher goal, and not achieved it, I'd end up with nothing, and two weeks wasted.

      If you were hoping for a lot more than that, mightn't you have asked for a lot more than that? Traditionally, when one receives the funding one sought, it is a time of rejoicing. Not trying to be smart, just speaking from my own experience.

      You might also look at IndieGoGo, they have less restrictive rules on how you structure a fundraiser. I tend to prefer Kickstarter, but I've backed some IGG projects as well. For example they don't have to be all-or-nothing, you can set a goal but keep pledges if the goal isn't met.
