Building Momentum

We are building momentum for our Indiegogo crowdfund launch in early 2023 and I’m excited. I’m excited because a Clubhouse influencer has agreed to take on a challenge to showcase and promote FunDonor. I’m excited because I’m due to speak at an influencer’s live empowerment event on 26 November. I’m excited because I have just agreed a Metaverse NFT event with a crypto influencer titled – Art is Power.
