      Macondo Launch & Fundraiser: Books for Venezuela

      We believe that of technology when combined with humanities creates a powerful force that can to have a positive impact in the world.  Join us and other members of tStartUp Up ecosystem and the Australian Venezuelan community as we celebrate the birth of Melbourne's latest social enterprise that seeks to leverage technology to solve real problems in Venezuela. Tickets are free, drinks and nibbles provided.  On the night we will also be fundraising money to purchase books and send them to Venezuela. We have received over 120+ book requests. The challenge for the night is to raise enough money to send them all! How to Donate Donations can be made: on Eventbrite as you reserve your free ticket by adding an additional 'Donation' ticket; Directly on our website (Macondo.Club/stripe-payments), or by cash on the night.  All books will be purchased online and sent to Miami where they will be packed in boxes and sent via maritime mail. About Macondo Macondo Club is a Peer-to-Peer (P2P) sharing platform for the delivery and distribution of books in Venezuela. As the crisis in Venezuela deepens, books have become luxury items - limited ranged, and very expensive. We believe strongly in the role books, ideas and honest debate have in society so we are working to ensure books are available to all. The Macondo platform connects people in Venezuela to request books, people travelling to Venezuela to take the books into the country, and anyone around the world to donate money to purchase the books. We are also working on a P2P library where users can enter their existing books into our database and discover books around them.
