      I am so very touched to have the opportunity to be a small part of such an incredible vision. Although I haven't seen you guys in a while I was so truly touched by your vision, passion and incredible drive to make this film happen. I cant tell you how you guys touched my kids lives and how proud they were to have met you guys and how your words, encouragement and advice impacted them. Thank you and I hope we will see more of each other no matter what the future holds and please always keep us posted on your new projects.

      I'm so proud of you guys and am such a fan of what you're doing!! It's exciting to be a part of this pivotal process and I love receiving the updates, emails, posts, and all that good stuff. I love the video and cannot wait to see the final product. You guys are doing wondrous things and I feel blessed to be a part of it. A thousand hugs (or more like, 50,000 ;-)

      Another comment from one of our lovely MAMA'S:
      I am so proud of Rebecca and Tony Capote for their movie "We all want the same thing." May the Lord continue to fulfill their dream!

      Another comment today from one of our supporters:

      It is very interesting that today I was looking at my friend's kickstarter campaign overreaching their initial $30,000 goal to produce their next music record. They are getting more than $200,000 from backers. Of course, they have an enormous fan base.
      But after browsing the main page I noticed the campaign for W.A.W.T.S.T. At the time, I did not play the video, but tonight I got an e-mail from Martha Rovirosa and definitely was compelled to check out the project. We have several friends connections in common, and I will promote your project because it is very relevant and close to my personal journey as an immigrant in the USA. I'm in the early stages of producing a documentary about international students and "DREAMers" with faculty from Miami Dade College and public founding. I understand how cumbersome the process of financing a film can be, so my best of wishes for you in this adventure!

      Proud of you guys. I actually immigrated with my parents to this country when I was 5 years old, and I can still remember some of the struggles they went through before reaching their dreams here. I am all for any film that brings that struggle into the the forefront, and sheds some light on the difficulties brought about by an unfair system to families that are otherwise hardworking and honest. Again I have to say I am proud of you guys. You can count on me to share your link with everyone that I can.

      We are receiving such wonderful message that we want to make sure that all following get to hear the passion from our family friends also. So I am sure comments from another backer I thought you all would enjoy!
      "We have such faith in your abilities and your professionalism."
      Good luck . We've sent this out to everyone we know.
      We'll see you at the party!!!!
      (and hopefully sooner:)"

      Posting this on behalf of one of our backers. This was a personal email... THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
      OMG!!! Becky... I AM SO PROUD OF YOU & TONY!!!
      It made me cry to see how much LOVE, HOPE & FAITH has gone into
      this DREAM!!!
      As I watched the PROMO VIDEO, it made me think how easy it is to
      forget how powerful The American Dream is when it becomes your
      day to day reality.
      Your KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      I have not watched the movie and I am already reminiscing about
      my story as immigrant. The funny thing is that part of that
      story has one of those moments when life reminds you that your
      life dream has become the epitome of "The American Dream". This
      day dreaming event gave me the following idea for when you get
      more than the $50K to get this show on the SCREEN!!! I know you
      will get more than you ever dreamed you could ;)
      Count me in to spread the word about this awesome project and
      put my money where my mouth and tears are ;)
      Great JOB!!!
      Luv ya loads,
