We are back for another edition of your favorite monthly updates! The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and over here in the northern hemisphere, the summer spirit is in full swing. This month, we’ve got some fun news in store for you; we’ll be giving you: the opportunity to tell us a little about yourself, showcase some new ways to reach out to your friends and family via Pigeon, and present to you the latest pitch event that occurred within our community!

Now sit back, relax, and buckle up your seat belts, because this is about to be a fun ride.

Back To The Future

We Want to Hear From You 🗣️

Whether you just signed up for Pigeon today, or have been rocking with us since the beginning when the dreaded days of our 404 page popups were much too frequent (we all have to start somewhere, right?), we are super excited to have you as part of our community. Now with the summer season in full swing, and the birds chirping all around us, we’ve decided now is the perfect time to hear from our flock as well!

Bird Shoulder Shrug

This month we want to hear your thoughts, opinions, loves, likes, dislikes, jives, jibs, jabs, and everything in between pertaining to Pigeon. To get this done, we went ahead and created a SURVEY, for you to fill out.

In this amazingly, well done, best survey in the world opportunity, we want to get a better picture of who you are and what you want so that we can make all your dreams come true through Pigeon (we’re like Santa, but for birds). This survey, is primarily aimed towards those who already have a Pigeon account, so if you are reading this and aren’t signed up yet, do so now! Much like a freshly hatched birdie, we are growing fast; and we want to make sure we stay true to you, your needs, and your vision for the community that is Pigeon.

Our survey is completely anonymous and optional. However, we know your time is precious, so we have a little surprise for you if you answer all the questions in our survey (*will it be money?*, *will it be a trip to Narnia?*, *will it be a lifetime supply of chocolate?*, there’s only one way to find out 😏)!

Click here to take the survey and receive a $5 Amazon Gift Card at the end!

We LOVE LOVE LOVE the fact that you all are out there actively promoting our vision and mission to help people all over the world empower themselves within their communities financially. So with all this unprompted promotion, we figured now is the right time to start rewarding you all for your contributions to the community.

Bet on Black Pitch: Pigeon

To wrap up this month, you know we had to feature some of the buzz we made in the streets. Recently, we were featured on the 10K Project’s informational series: Bet on Black Pitch.

One of our co-founders, Brian, took the stage to present Pigeon to the 10K Project community. In his discussion with the 10K Project, Brian discussed how Pigeon can be used for positive change within minority and disenfranchised communities around the world. We took some time to discuss the ins and outs of Pigeon 's finances, and then concluded the party with a jam-packed Q&A session that brought to light a lot of the beauty built into our ecosystem.

You can check out a recording of the event here!

10K Project

Shoutout to the 10K Project as well, they are an awesome organization spearheaded by two powerhouse women, building a community aimed at supporting black-owned businesses financially. They are doing amazing work, connecting thousands of everyday African-Americans interested in untraditional investment opportunities to black-owned businesses. Their grassroots organization is building up the next generation of black entrepreneurs, giving them capital, and educating folks in hopes of creating a wealth of opportunity and financial growth for the black community. If you can, go check their work, and find out why they call themselves the 10K Project!

Well, there you have it. We hope you enjoyed the ride this month! We will be back next month, hopefully on time, and will be ready to give you more Pigeon news, so keep an eye out for us in July!

As always, stay tuned, stay safe, and keep chirping!
