"Only together (= hunto) we can make a difference!"
With HUNTO PA ARUBA we want to support our local small business owners and hopefully contribute in surviving this COVID-19 crisis HUNTO ( ‘together’ in Papiamento)! So that when we are back to (the new) normal, locals and tourists can keep on enjoying their services and/or products.
GET INSPIRED ON YOUTUBE!
We launched our YouTube channel together with our partner BoldBizz to inform you, inspire you, make you laugh, move, think and be part of this movement. We can’t do this without you!
HOW IT WORKS
SUPPORT BY DONATION
Everyone has the possibility to support this project by donating. All donations received will be divided and transferred equally between the participating businesses. Follow our social media channels to see all the participating businesses.
Everyone that makes a donation automatically participates in winning prizes. There are many prizes to win! We will announce all our winners via our social media channels. Do you want to know what you can win? Go to our instagram or facebook page.
To make this project transparent, local company Cornerstone Economics will conduct financial audits and will report the outputs of the crowdfunding. This way, we make visible that the collected funds will be transferred equally to all participating businesses.
HUNTO PA CARLITOS!
Whether you are local or have visited Aruba, it’s impossible you didn’t bump into our famous friend Carlitos. He walks around making you happy with snacks & a friendly chat. Unfortunately he can’t do this at the moment, that’s why we are collecting money for Carlitos own vending machine! Support him now by making a donation, so we can soon make this happen!
Promote small local businesses and social entrepreneurs on Aruba to help them survive the COVID-19 crisis and be part of an inspiring and connecting movement.
WHAT WE STAND FOR
Our logo is a symbol for ‘connection’ or ‘to connect’. With HUNTO we want to make a connection with all Aruban small businesses & entrepreneurs, to create a valuable network. Each letter of the word ‘HUNTO’ are pillars of our movement.
When times are tough we have to help each other! With our HUNTO initiative we want to start a movement: support your local!
Unity brings a feeling of solidarity. Let’s join forces to achieve what we all want: overcome this crisis and create a new & better ‘normal’ on Aruba.
By connecting local small business owners we create a powerful network of entrepreneurs. Let’s learn from each other and collaborate, during crisis but also in the future!
Only together we can do this! Think of all the great things we can achieve together for Aruba! HUNTO PA ARUBA!
This period opens doors to new opportunities, collaborations & innovations. By bringing small businesses together, great things will happen.

HUNTO PA ARUBA is a movement that unites local businesses and social entrepreneurs. They own a small local company or work at a foundation or non-profit organisation.
Promote local entrepreneurs and collect money with crowdfunding (donations) in order to use this money to survive with their business during this COVID-19 crisis.
All donations will equally be divided between all entrepreneurs that joined this movement.
Cornerstone Economics, located on Aruba will report and audit the entire crowdfunding to make sure all donations will be transferred to the local entrepreneurs. Learn more about cornerstone economics on our youtube channel.
Go to the special HUNTO PA ARUBA crowdfunding page and make your donation. We are happy with every amount!
From the donations we receive we will draw winners that will receive a prize. If you are one of the lucky winners we will contact you. Also we will communicate the winners on our social media. To keep up to standard with privacy regulations we will not communicate surname/ family names without permission.
As long as needed! We are aware that Aruba is relying on tourism for 89%, we will evaluate each month.
Every company that is financially struggling can join HUNTO PA ARUBA.. We do not have any requirements like belonging to a certain chain or branche. As we do this for small companies the businesses that join do not have more than 10 employees and of course need to be located on Aruba.
As we believe we are in this together and we need to unite to survive this, together.
This means that the list of companies can be updated each time someone joins.
