The Spark Project is the Philippines' first crowdfunding platform. The young founders want to bring together ideas worth promoting and potential donors. Currently, for example, a young girl is collecting money to travel to Camp with People in the USA. Supporters for traditionally-handmade designer shoes and for a French-Filipino film production are also still being sought.
Creativity, innovation, and passion – these are the three entry criteria. The Spark Project is not free to use – up to 10% of contributions collected are deducted as a fee. It remains to be seen how the platform will develop. As of the beginning of 2016, about 30 projects have been registered - most of which have already achieved their goal.
