For the month of May, 30% of the sale price of your purchases on Revolucy will go to struggling families via the Bali Covid-19 Appeal.

Bali has been economically devastated by the Covid-19 Pandemic. Most people in Bali are heavily dependent on tourism for their incomes, but with tourism having dried up completely many people now find themselves out of work, and with little or no access to social welfare life has become a serious struggle for many.

The Indonesia Institute Inc., based in Perth, Australia has created a Go-Fund-Me project to raise money to help struggling families in Bali.

Throughout the month every time you make a purchase on Revolucy, we will donate 30% of the sale price to this Go-Fund-Me project. …

Two brothers from Indonesia, Ferli and Robbi, have for the past few years worked together to form the microstock production company Odua Images. We spoke to Ferli who works on the tropical island of Bali, and we asked him about Odua Images and their experiences in the microstock industry.

The following is a list of some of the things we learned and what kept us motivated during the making of our business. If you are making a business right now we hope you find this useful.
