XPO²: Fundraising Disrupted
Exponential, Inc. is a global company dedicated to supporting efforts which lead to a “net social impact”.
As the KPI guiding real world results and impact investment success, “net social impact” is a measure to define “the good” small to medium sized NGOs are achieving everyday.
That means every dollar raised to support the people, animals and natural landscapes of a place like Kenya, will stay there to ensure that our efforts continue long after April 19th of 2018. Thanks to the support of Diamond CBD, Exponential Inc. is able to create measurable results that protect natural resources and improve the quality of life for citizens around the world.
Following recent Diamond CBD sponsored charitable events in the Philippines and Vietnam, this reforesting effort marks the beginning of XPO²’s efforts in Africa.
Between April 17th and 27th of 2018, XPO² was on the ground in Kenya raising funds and lending direct support to various nonprofit organizations, community action groups and charities.
The team was lead by its founder and CEO, Dom Einhorn with support from XPO² representatives from Vietnam, France, Kenya and the United States.
XPO² is proud to be working with sponsors like Diamond CBD to create measurable real world results that improve the health, well-being and quality of life for people around the world.
Thanks to Diamond CBD, Inc. and XPO2, over 8,000 Acacia trees were planted in the Ngong Forest.
