TOGETHER AS ONE WE HAVE OVERCOME!!!
WOW - What a wild ride that was for all of us! We've been recovering from minor heart attacks and having burst into tears when it was all over!
Every word of encouragement and support truly made the difference and got us through it!
This is a SHARED success story that would not have happened without EVERY ONE OF YOU COMING TOGETHER and rallying their communities behind this project!
A HUGE THANK YOU to la Organizacion Juventud Ecuatoriana for all their tremendous support throughout our campaign and at very critical moments! You guys really inspire us!!
And THANK YOU to all our BACKERS and DREAM TEAM, for your efforts in spreading the word and for your contribution towards this Dream!
Every one of you gave us hope and strengthened our faith that this would be possible, every donation big or small was so exciting to see come in, especially at the last moments as the clock ticked away....
and truly we are so very VERY GRATEFUL!
FROM HERE ON....
We will keep you all posted on our journey as it develops, Betty and I are headed to NALIP's Producer's Academy today in Santa Fe, New Mexico where we will be workshopping the film and planning our upcoming film shoots in Ecuador that YOU HAVE HELPED FUND!
If it wasn't for the success of this campaign, it would not be possible, but here we are, prepped to buy plane tickets and commence the planning!
It's an exciting time!
We will keep you all posted on the development of our online store where we will be able to continue to take Pre-Orders of the DVD, the Bomba CD and offer other NEW rewards and contests in the coming months, along with updating our website blog and Kickstarter along the way....
This is a new beginning as this film takes on a new life and certainly we will continue to lean on you for your support and inspiring comments along the way in our journey to complete the film, and make a positive impact on the children in these marginalized communities, bringing Hope, Empowerment and Unity!
