My name is Maria Pena, I am a social entrepeneur with a passion to help those in need. I am currently developing a website called Pugoka, Pumping Good Karma, that will sell products from local artisans and allow crowdfunding for social projects. The projects will promote a world free of violence and social justice. 


Dear Carolyn,

The website is It is still under development since I am figuring out the legal process of receiving money for social causes but I would appreciate it if you could look at it and give me your feedback if you'd like :)

I will definitely tell you whenever it is ready so that we can start working together.

I hope you have a great rest of the week!




Hi Maria,

Your website looks great already. Well done to you and your team. I would keep a close watch on your progress with this and certainly share any ideas (if I have any).

My email is Please, feel free to contact me at any time.

Totally looking forward to a fantastic collaboration.

Warm regards,

Hi Maria,

If I heard this from you on an elevator, I would want to firm up contact before the chance meeting was over.



Hi Maria,

This is a great pitch - direct and inspiring!  I would definitely be curious to learn more about you and your work if I met you and heard only these words.    I am excited for you and your new beginnings with the website and social business venture.

I hope you are finding good resources and support through World Pulse!
