Donations for Startup?

I feel like this is a touchy subject but is it unreasonable to ask for donations to get your business up and running? My goal is to save people money so I feel really weird about asking for money.
1) I did apply this to kickstarter.com as a project to get the final site up per conversation with
them. Then ended up declining it which is how I got to my current spot.
2) Should I keep the donation button up on my temporary site and just take out a new credit card?
3) Is there any way to sucsessfuly ask for donations with out sounding like a spammer?
I'm sorry for sounding repetitive. Any ideas, advice or general help is much appreciated. :3
