From April 7-12 Jacksonville University will serve as a project curator for One Spark 2015, which is billed as the world’s largest crowdfunding festival. Over the next several days, we will highlight projects located in our open-air venue at Main and Forsyth streets.
First up is BamBoost – Project #22279
What is it?
BamBoost educates young children and reduces the cost of health necessities in slums through use of bamboo fiber.
What sets your Project apart from what is currently available?
Our project is unique because we are using bamboo fiber for our health necessities, which will reduce the cost of necessities in slums by more than 75%. Bamboo fiber products have yet to be introduced to these communities, which will give us a competitive advantage. We also have an innovative rewards program in place, which will incentivize parents to educate their children through our curriculum books. Successfully educating a child leads to a discount on future purchases of bamboo fiber health necessities.
