Collection Agency
Three cheers for paying ahead.

You’re in charge of your best friend’s bachelorette party. You can do one of the following: Remind (ahem, nag) everyone to chip in for the debauchery, or sign up for the ultimate crowdfunding platform that will boost your organizing prowess.

Meet Tilt, a free group funding network. Think of it as Kickstarter for your social life. With the app, you can collect money for everything without having to send daily reminders to friends or pay for the whole thing yourself.

Start with a financial goal (say, $1,000 for a weekend jaunt) along with a deadline for when you need the funds. Tilt then emails your friends (you can also post on Facebook and Twitter) with a direct link to your request. What’s great is that no one is charged until the financial goal is met, so no one is left holding a feather boa on their own.

Progress is visible in real time, and once you raise enough money, the funds are transferred to your bank account within one business day.
