ESpero 2022 in a Nutshell
Updated: Jul 31
It is mentioned in my earlier posts that I founded my own nonprofit, ESpero (short for ESpero for Innovative Philanthropy). The company started off from a small NFT project, now growing into an international nonprofit with 5 international branches, and over 120 volunteers from the US, Canada, UK, Singapore, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Israel, Ukraine, Norway devoted their services to ESpero. This blog is to record, or wrap up, what we have done in 2022, as an inspiration and motivation for a new start in 2023.
