After looking at a number of strategies to promote the Perfume of Life Study Center, we’ve opted to go forward with our own adaptation of the popular Internet platforms for crowdsourcing as a means to solicit support. Taking into account that, unlike the online rewards programs, transactions here will be administered privately, we invite your communications with a view to earning your confidence in our integrity and the prospects for the Study Center in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
