Now, it’s becoming more possible than ever to achieve greatness….
That is a challenge facing artists, scientists, charities and NGOs alike. I once was extremely critical of what appeared to be a NON-culture regarding fundraising – excluding CSR ventures. I had good reason to be.
Fast forward to 2016, and many of my favorite projects transpired from online fundraising. The use of online tools seems to have made a glorious impact on how we assist those in crisis, raise money for art, collaborate…the possibilities are endless and wonderful.
Thanks to the IoT, regular people can raise money for a good idea through the use of several user friendly websites. That’s one of the positive aspects of what is becoming a very SMS immersed time, and Korea is beginning to embrace it.
I now look to the net as much as I do to the investment world. The best part of this is, you needn’t be a connected person to be effective – only someone with inspiration and persistence. It’s a great thing, truly.
It’s no secret my activist nature has shifted to ethics in entertainment, but my ties to bears are still present. It remains to be seen what role I may play at this point, one that I am saddened to have reached without the idealistic solution that we’d all hoped for, following in Jill’s footsteps at AAF…with our president in such an unprecedented situation, this will be an interesting year.
