Wouldn't it be nice if people filled your piggy bank?

I don't know how I missed Jon Gordon's post about saving money the Web 2.0 way. Turns out:

SmartyPig is a Web site designed to help people save money for specific goals, like buying an iPhone or a new digital TV. It includes a social element that lets friends and family contribute to an account and monitor a saver's progress.

This is pretty interesting. As someone saving for a goal, would you make your account public in hopes people would $upport your efforts? As a contributor would you be more likely to match someone's savings efforts if you could view it online? Read and comment on wavLength.
