While the campaign in a new trend in Palestine, previous successful campaigns from Palestine and the region have inspired the entrepreneurs to use this method business wise, with the aim of creating sustainable small businesses in various areas in order to promote the local produce.

Campaigns under this initiative were launched within the same time frame of 30-days and under different categories that ranged from traditional Palestinian handmade accessories, embroideries and gifts to high-tech applications for student advisory, GPS Apps and Facebook guide.
