ACTNews, JAKARTA – Ahead of Eid-ul-Adha, Musliims around the world are preparing for their sacrificial animals. In this day and age, there are many ways for us to purchase qurbani animals. Apart from using conventional ways going to animal sellers to purchase from them, we can also buy qurbani animals online.
Global Qurban – Aksi Cepat Tanggap also utilizes technology to facilitate the people in performing qurbani. Since 2011, Global Qurban has initiated many innovative programs to help people to perform qurbani.
For years, Global Qurban has been collaborating with various partners, including crowdfunding sites. Crowdfunding platforms are usually used to gather money to fund projects or ventures.
This time, Global Qurban uses crowdfunding platform for a different purpose. Apart from using it as a platform with which people can raise money, it can also be used to invite people to share the blessings of qurbani.
“We think that crowdfunding platforms are supported by donors that have a strong sense of philanthropy. This collaboration is to invite them to share the happiness of qurbani,” explained Karina Yusmaniar of Global Qurban’s Partnership Development Network.
Global Qurban’s collaboration with crowdfunding platforms began with a collaboration with kitabisa.com in 2015. From 2015-2017 kitabisa.com was the only crowdfunding partner that collaborated with Global Qurban in facilitating people to perform qurbani.
“During our collaboration with kitabisa.com, Alhamdulillah, the enthusiasm gets stronger each year. We concluded that crowdfunding platforms can be a solution to facilitate people who want to perform qurbani,” said Yusmaniar.
In welcoming the next Eid-ul-Adha, Global Qurban has collaborated with two additional crowdfunding platforms: cepattanggap.org and vestifarm.com. Cepattanggap.org is a crowdfunding site owned by Aksi Cepat Tanggap that just started operating in 2018.
“The collaboration with the two crowdfunding platforms has been going on. It is easy, just open the site, and look for Global Qurban’s page. You can conduct your qurbani transaction there. This is another Global Qurban’s innovation to facilitate the people who wish to perform qurbani,” explained Yusmaniar.
