Goodie Monster tries to shake funds loose from Kickstarter
Mark Jacobs, the Portland entrepreneur who co-created the Goodie Monster, a decorated vending machine filled with healthier snacks, turned to Kickstarter to raise funds for his idea.
Kickstarter uses the power of the web to enable people to raise cash for creative projects.
Jacobs hopes to raise $26,000 so he can add the vending machines at children's hospitals, schools and Portland recreation centers.
