The Purpose Hotel™ campaign has exceeded the initial goal of $347-thousand dollars on Kickstarter in less than 48 hours. The project relaunched on September 12 and nearly 2,000 people joined in backing the crowd-sourced effort. The initial step allows The Purpose Hotel™ team to take steps in developing the initial designs and financing of the building. According to planners, every aspect of the global chain will directly contribute to those in need through strategic sourcing and procurement. They say just staying at the hotel will help those in need around the world.
