Two weeks after…
Wow, time flies! It’s been two weeks since the end of the Kickstarter project and we've been working very hard on the production of the WakaWaka Power for our backers and the realisation of the donation of the WakaWaka Lights to Haiti.
WakaWaka Power production
I'm writing to you from China where I'm visiting the WakaWaka factories. It's great so see the place where the WakaWaka Power will be manufactured and meet the people who are in charge of the process here. We've discussed every little detail regarding the production process, schedule and quality demands. The photo below gives you an idea of how that went. The first Power samples will be finished by the end of February so we can test them thoroughly and guarantee you the best quality. After that we can get the assembly line rolling and start full-scale production!
WakaWaka Lights and Haiti
The WakaWaka Lights that are meant for donation are awaiting to be shipped to Haiti. At the moment we're preparing everything that is needed for the first steps of assembling in Haiti; location, logistics and local management are being discussed with partners on the ground. We expect to ship the WakaWaka Lights this spring. I’ll keep you all posted on all further developments in the upcoming weeks.
Get your WakaWaka Power
Meanwhile, we've set up a pre-sale of the WakaWaka Power. This means that even though the crowdfunding has finished, early adopters can still be among the first to receive a Power via our pre-order webshop getwakawaka.com. So, if you told your friends, family and colleagues about that Solar Power Station & Light you ordered, just redirect them to getwakawaka.com to pre-order theirs today!
And the winner is...
And last but not least, I can announce the final results of the color votes! From the 275 votes the majority went to the color: GREEN!! We counted all votes from our FB page (comments and the poll) and in the Kickstarter commentboxes so we wouldn't miss out on a single vote. Want to know how many votes the color of your choice got? View the graph below.
In a couple of weeks we'll be in contact to confirm your pledge and reward and ask for your preferred color (yellow, black or green) and shipping address.
