During the early ours of the morning of Saturday 10 May 2014, enke: Make Your Mark reached its goal amount of $20,000, with just under 60 minutes to spare. Our first ever crowdfunding campaign officially closed sitting on an impressive $20, 321 raised– 102% of our goal amount! http://igg.me/at/enkeMYM/x/6853380
When we first started all prep work for this crowdfunding journey, some 2 months prior to the campaign ending, we knew we’d be wading through uncharted waters and would experience some exhilarating moments. We read up countless articles regarding what constituted best practice, consulted individuals who had run a campaign before, as well as studied many successful campaigns to glean any insights as to what made them succeed.
What we know, without a doubt is that the success of the enke crowdfunding campaign would not have been possible without the support of each and every one of our supporters. Their belief in our work – inspiring and supporting young South Africans to take action on the most urgent social issues – was apparent at the number of contributions made and promotion of the campaign performed by our cheerleaders, ambassadors and members of the enke family.
We thank every single person who took this journey with us and ensured we crossed the finish line with style!
