Is crowd funding the newest form of spanging (spare changing)?


I have seen quite a few different internet fundraisers lately, utilizing crowd funding to raise money for silly things. Think of the guy who made a kickstarter to ask for money to make potato salad. Or the gofundme site to help someone pay their electric bill. I have to wonder if this is the equivalent to "spanging", "flying a sign", or just flat out begging. Now on the other hand, I know much good can be accomplished with these sites, but what about the ridiculous requests that also get funded?
