Let's create an organization/startup that helps bring people's aspirations, such as these, to life.

It seems as though many people's dreams could be easily fulfilled by individuals and/or organizations around the world. What if there was a way to aggregate all of these "before I die" aspirations from everyday people around the world, and allow common people and even organization or groups to assist in fulfilling these dreams. It seems like it could be reasonably easy to accomplish. Perhaps the whole platform could take a lesson from kickstarter and similar companies, except with a different goal/purpose at its core. What does everyone think about this? Can we come together and globally crowd-source peoples life long dreams?

    Sep 4 2012: i like the concept. perhaps Groupon.com would be a good partner for such an organization, they have connections with many large organizations. we would just have to find out how to make money from this, people dont want to just see other people's dreams come true so there has to be a "twist" to it in order to successfully crowd source dreams.
    • Sep 5 2012: Well I feel like it would be a great platform for companies to show how they support communities. As for actual profit and revenue, I'm not positive. Perhaps proper sponsorship from a compan or group of companies could reduce or even remove the need for actual profit. Maybe some others have some good ideas for how something like this could stay afloat.
