2014 is ending and we are preparing many new features and surprises for next year. For now let's just say that we have implemented a detail that was missing: easy conversion to other currencies, as you can see next to the campaigns thermometer. And as Christmas is approaching, we just re-created our special Christmas catalog for "crowd-gifts". Check it out and use it in order to generate more social impact with your donation, sending the reward you want to someone else :)

Here's a selection of four recent ethical crowdfunding campaigns, which we love to share in this last newsletter of the year:
