Kickstarter, the crowdfunding platform that changed the world of entrepreneurship, is welcoming creators and artists from Mexico to the platform for the first time, dailydot.com reports.

The move comes as part of a partnership with Fondeadora, a crowdfunding platform started by René Serrano and Norman Müller five years ago when they found out Kickstarter couldn’t be used in Mexico.

In its life, Fodeadora has helped fund thousands of projects in Mexico.

Now the site will direct users to Kickstarter.

During the company’s first 100 days in Mexico, it will be donating its 5 percent fee from every project launched in the country to local charitable organizations. These organizations will be announced in the near future.

Creators in Mexico have indirectly worked with Kickstarter, collaborating with creators in other countries to fund Kickstarter projects, like the first public library for contemporary art in Mexico City, a stop-motion film inspired by Cubism, a retro adventure RPG, and a successful outdoor apparel company powered by artisan communities throughout Mexico.

Previously Kickstarter was only available in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Denmark, Ireland, Norway, Sweden, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Austria, Belgium, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Hong Kong, and Singapore.

As part of the Mexico launch, the company has highlighted a few select projects:
