Thank You All So Much

I wanted to thank all of you who contributed to this project. I have removed it from the Global Giving project page as a funded project.

The budget for this project was $9,592 and with your help we raised $1008. Last September we were able to buy a new/used desktop iMac computer (see photo) and a UPS battery pack.  This has been a HUGE help in my work, thank you so much.

In January two of our supporters won the Ford Focus Global Test Drive contest with their video submissions. Each contestant won an all expense paid trip for two to Spain for the Ford Global Test Drive, they got to keep the new Ford Focus for six weeks, and $10,000 to donate to their favorite charity, LRFF. They were also encouraged to create some type of event to promote the new Focus and the organization they support.

My friend and colleague, Pedro Bestler, is organizing an event in Berlin for Earth Day called Let’s Get Planting Global Event, ( www.letsgetplanting.com ). It will be taking place on the 21st and 22nd of April with yours truly being interviewed, Pedro and I then helping people to rediscover their connection to the Earth through dance, rhythm, and celebration, a treasure hunt and the Earth Dance or Dance of the Universe.

During my stay in Berlin I will be purchasing a brand new 13” laptop, a new keyboard and iPhone with the remainder of the donations for this project at Global Giving and the Ford Focus prize money. Thank you again for supporting this project.

ONWARD AND UPWARD!

LET’S GET PLANTING!
