What’s Your Super Bowl Game Plan?
Super Bowl Sunday is just a few days out. Whether you’ll be watching the afternoon’s broadcast for the commercials (TV advertisers spend serious bucks for spots in this program), the half-time show (will your favorite artist be performing?), or the game itself (you want to see these teams duke it out!), the question is whether to go to someone else’s Super Bowl party or to throw your own.
If you’re the type who likes to host the party, then you’re also the type who knows how to take care of your guests. Go beyond the standard spread for a regular season game. This is the Super Bowl – there’s no need to hold back.
Some ideas for food and beyond:
- Chicken wings, potato skins, seven layer dip, vegetable trays… Hungry yet?
- Beer, beer, and more beer… Save money and just get a keg. You know you want to.
- Revive a tailgating game, space permitting. Cornhole, anyone? Ladder ball?
- Splurge on that nacho cheese fountain that you couldn’t justify getting during the season…
Your Super Bowl party doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. Split the cost with your friends with a Crowdtilt campaign. Even better, ask for a few bucks more and get the keg, upgrade to the 6-foot sandwich platter, or – best of all – build this epic food stadium. Now those are the ingredients for an epic Super Bowl Party!

Fees Waived For Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts
Hurricane Sandy has passed, but not the havoc it wreaked on thousands of people
Fundraising efforts by organizations like the Red Cross, that offer basic shelter, ready-to-eat meals, and other relief supplies to those affected by the storm, have been heartwarmingly successful. However, by their nature, these resources are given out over a broad range and mostly to the people hit the hardest.
Is there a particular person or family you know who could use help in the storm’s aftermath?
Crowdtilt and our payments processor will waive any fees for Hurricane Sandy related fundraisers, when you use promo code “sandyrecovery” on your campaign.
If you would like to support existing relief organizations, you can use the same promo code as well.
Our thoughts are with the families on the east coast, and we wish you a quick recovery.

Friends Always Have Your Back - Group Gifting With Crowdtilt
Grad school - for those of us who have never been, there’s a glamor to high education. We picture ourselves deep in discussion at a seminar table in a 300-level course, or at the head of a class of eager, wide-eyed undergrads, or curing cancer in a beautifully stocked genetics lab (hey, we can dream!).
*** Follow Crowdtilt on Twitter here ***
But even those of us who’ve never attended know that you really, really need a computer in grad school. We also know that finances are tight for the average student, and if - imagine this - you’ve just been accepted into a prestigious grad program, and you’ve popped the champagne and broadcast the good news to all and sundry - and the next thing you know, your laptop decides to commit spectacular, ill-timed suicide - well, goodness, what do you do then?
That’s where Crowdtilt comes in!
The above nightmare scenario happened to Brielle: her laptop bit the dust a few months before she was due to leave for grad school. But her friends Alicia and Chad came to the rescue - with the help of Crowdtilt’s group-funding service.
Check out their campaign here: https://www.crowdtilt.com/campaigns/send-brielle-off-to-grad-school-with-a-mac-book-pro
Education may be expensive, but friends are priceless! What can you do for your friends today? Whatever it is, go ahead and try it on Crowdtilt!
How Crowdtilt is allowing groups to do more offline
Our goal at Crowdtilt is to help groups do more awesome things offline by building the world’s easiest way to pool money together.
If you hosted a casual/informal party for St. Patrick’s Day and didn’t use Crowdtilt, you probably either asked each person to bring food and drinks, or you bought everything in advance and asked people to pitch in when they arrived (Or God forbid, you made friends buy tickets online to your casual party through a service like Eventbrite).
If it was the latter, how much of your expenses were you able to recover and how much effort was required to get the money from each person?
This is where Crowdtilt comes in. For example, this group raised more than $1,000 for their St. Patrick’s Day party to cover everything from kegs of green-dyed beer, an abundance of food, all the way to blow-up leprechauns (the full list is actually pretty impressive).
You might think $1,000 is a lot for a party among friends, but the beauty of running a campaign on Crowdtilt is that no credit cards were charged until the campaign tilted. It’s simply the best way to get the whole group on board with an idea (and is a much less risky approach to planning things), instead of hoping enough people show up with cash in their hands. Admit it, collecting $1,000 at the door of your own party would be awful… So awful in fact, that without Crowdtilt, you’d likely just resort to making everyone just bring food and drinks so that you don’t front the costs for everyone. Well tsk tsk - there’s no point in imagining a world without Crowdtilt, because THAT WORLD IS OVER!
And while this is a typical example of the power of you+Crowdtilt, what we love the most, is that this campaign (and subsequent party) was funded in just hours - and instead of food and drinks, it was an extravaganza that would’ve made St. Pat proud.
So, what is keeping you from planning your next awesome get together? Is it the fear of getting enough money from friends?… Fear no longer, Crowdtilt is here.
