Local startup expands to global markets

myFanPark, the platform that has transformed the way fans connect with local celebrities through personalised and video-recorded messages, has announced that fans in Germany, Switzerland and Austria are connecting with their favourite celebrities through the platform and soon, fans in India and West Africa will get to do so too.

Eight percent of myFanPark's profits are being donated to two charities - the Laureus Sports for Good Foundation, South Africa and The Children's Hospital Trust. The Laureus Sports for Good Foundation, South Africa funds and promotes the use of sport as a tool for positive change, while The Children's Hospital Trust raises funds to support specific projects and programmes to help advance child healthcare through the Red Cross War Memorial Children's Hospital - the first stand-alone tertiary hospital exclusively for children in sub-Saharan Africa.
