How can I crowdfund a gift?

I want to organize a pool of several hundred people who benefited from one person's efforts to make their days better. Is there something like Kickstarter to help facilitate crowdfunding a gift?

This person went above and beyond to bring a community of people together in a really amazing (non-trivial) way, did it in their spare time and a their own expense, and really should be thanked.
I've reached out to a couple dozen who are enthusiastic about buying this person a weekend getaway, but the circles of people overlap and no one person can connect them all in the real world and collect the cash to a central place.
Kickstarter and Indiegogo are great for funding projects, but apparently not this sort of thing. What can I do to set something like this up in a hurry (we want to present the gift at an event in a week).
BONUS points for recommendations that can help keep it a surprise.
