For months now, we have been working on a private project supporting one of our fellow Trenndians - to change his life, and change the lives of the children in his community.
I was talking to Kris JS the other day, and we were both talking about our love for Uptrennd. How we were committed to the people here - and how important it is for us to be able to part of changing lives for the better. I love that Victoria Haruna also shares that same beautiful commitment to the people here. And of course, the generosity of Uptrennd University staff and students knows no bounds! They raised 18000 1up (and you'll see it reflected in the numbers below!) and then KEPT on giving!!!
When you look around Uptrennd, you will find that there are some very dedicated people here who - despite the prices of our token - are willing to spend time, energy and money to build the community.
I really love that.
The second thing that I really love?
The generosity that is contagious here.
And here is the evidence of it!
Look at all that was raised! And most of this is in 1up!!! How cool is that :) To know that Uptrennd and 1up MADE A DIFFERENCE in our world! Not only was George able to bless his community with a discount on fish, but he sold more fish at a great price to bulk buyers! He has enough to start building his second pond and with the next harvest - he is set to build his third pond!
Don't think it was easy... This project has had SO mountains to climb - but George was faithful to keep trying, every day, surmounting the obstacles through God's grace, and now - I'd like you to see what YOU ALL did!
At the time that I sent the donations to George last week,
the 1up plus the other donations were worth $645!!!
Then - add to that - the profits of his fish harvest!!!
When we began this project, we had projected the amount needed to make it a successful venture that would grow and flourish with each new harvest. Because of your generosity, we surpassed that projection significantly and shortened our timetable for building the second pond by 4 months earlier!
This is HUGE!! It means that within one year's time, George will be able to select one working-age child in his community to train, help, and mentor - so that they can have a life that is changed!
Thank you so much for believing in this project! And - as promised, those who donated $10 or more will be getting one of the beautiful donation NFTs to commemorate this event!
A separate post to honor those donors will be published this week!
Thank you again!!!
