    Hey all,

    I’m proud to announce that Billion, a new crowdfunding platform to raise money for social movements around Columbus, is now officially live! Right now, there are 14 organizations represented on the website, and you can pledge your support for one of these movements by donating money to the Billion fund. At the end of the funding cycle, the movement that is most supported by the community will receive the fund to make an impact in our community.

    We started this platform to allow community members to voice what social causes they think are the most important to make Columbus a better place!

    If you have a moment, please check out our site at http://www.billioneffect.com. Scroll down and click “See All Projects” to browse all of the movements! We will also be at Independent’s Day Festival in Franklinton on September 19-20th, so check us out there at the “GamJam” event, where you’ll be able to play a virtual reality game while also supporting one of these nonprofits.

    We are a small team in Columbus, and we’re really excited about our launch, and I hope you take a minute to look at our site :).

    All the best,



    So you want people to contribute to a chosen fund and then hope that their money actually goes to that fund?
