◉ In response to this situation, we are preparing an innovative way to help Clubs to collect resources for their projects. “Donate to help a Project”.
◉ You will be able to Donate to support your favorite project or projects.
◉ Each project will have an account where donations will be totaled up to the amount set for that project. Our target is to help as many clubs as possible to accomplish their projects.
