The Urgency and Hope

It’s been a pretty crazy week or so with the launch of the indiegogo campaign to raise money to print the book and build a well. It blows my mind how much money we have raise in the first week. How people have been following what is going on with this book, and also the excitement for people to have a book of their own. Its so exciting and makes all the work and time worth while. And to talk of the support, just wow!

Still, I do worry that we will not reach our goal and that no one will get the book. See if we don’t raise the $30,000 in the 40 days we have then the book won’t be printed and the well will not be built. Which scares and worries me. We have come so far, so many things have been over-come and now it comes down to these 40 days. Its as if just this one last time we (or really I) need to put all of my faith in this and hope and believe that good will come out of this and that we can overcome this large number that needs to be raised. Which comes to show that in these next 40 days I don’t have any real control over. Days where all I can do is write to you here, send out emails (which I have sent to Oprah, Ellen and a few other celebrities for support), and keep campaigning on social media for support. But at the end of the day it comes down to people supporting us and helping by telling this story, and even being a part of this story.

So with that, thank you for your support so far. I hope that you keep sharing Sarah’s and my story and that we can build a well together to help people get clean water.
