Why is this project important?

Revenue generation is an integral part of our operation. To date, we have vision and ideas, but we need to finalize a sustainable plan to generate income at DYJ. Without a solid foundation to lay on, we may not be able to effectively scale. This project will help validate our vision, convince future investors to participate and further our mission to make the world a happier and healthier place.

This project will save us $11,794, allowing us to build a sustainable happiness product for over 1000000 happiness seekers.

Fun Fact

Fun Fact

In May 2013, DYJ won a Holstee Fellowship. At that time, DYJ wasn't much more than an idea, but the nudge to solicit help from our community forced us to step out of our comfort zone and vehemently pursue our dreams. That milestone still means a lot to us.

This is the 5th project posted by Drink Your Juice.
