4 ways you can support our campaign

Doing any of the following would be greatly appreciated!
  • Share what we are doing with your favorite blogger or other media outlet.
  • Share on social media & link to this page — Facebook and LinkedIn are especially valuable. Here's an example post that you could share:

    "Exciting news! A company I love, Akamai Basics https://www.akamaibasics.com, is running an investment crowdfunding campaign. This isn't Kickstarter — you actually get to invest in the company, and participate in their growth. Plus, they are doing a lot of social good by calling out an industry that has been ripping us off, exposing us to a sea of toxic chemicals & creating enormous environmental waste. If you want to try your hand at angel investing for as little as $100, check out their Wefunder campaign here: https://wefunder.com/akamaibasics"

  • Follow our Wefunder campaign — click the "Remind Me" button near the top right of my Wefunder page (this shows traction for our campaign and builds key momentum on Wefunder).
  • Connect us to 1 or 2 people who you think might be interested in investing a larger amount in the campaign (e.g. $5,000 or more).
Enabling customers to become investors in our success has always been something I’ve believed in.

We are also doing a 506c equity raise. If you’re an accredited investor and interested, contact us to learn more.

In wellness and success,
