Hey Project Sponsors!

Thanks again for donating to the water well project. I hope everyone is doing great! The weather has been great in Oregon. I've been home for about 3 weeks and getting re-adjusted to routine life.

I was planning on visiting many of you to shake your hand in person, but unfortunately, my work schedule is picking up and I won't have time to visit everybody immediately.

Please send me your mailing address so I can send you a personal thank-you letter, brief narrative of the project, signed group photo, and a hand-made bracelet. If you have already received a gift from Laurence or Paolo, please disregard.

Thanks!

Hey everyone,
Thanks again for helping out on this project. We are officially complete. It was a huge success and tons of fun. We were able to construct a 53 meter borehole with a hand pump and also renovate a guesthouse with solar power. I added some photographs taken by Laurence. I am restricted to only 12 photos on Crowd Rise, but if you want to see more, look me up on Facebook. I decided to abandon our website because it seems outdated and unnecessary to maintain now that the project is over. I have a 3 page report and many more photos if you would like more details. Paolo, Laurence, and I will hand deliver a signed photo and bracelet to each of you in the next few weeks if possible, but in some cases, we may require your mailing address. Let me know if you need tax documentation for your donation. Thanks again for all your help. The villagers now have so much water that they are going to create an Olympic swimming team!

I wanted to thank everyone again for donating to this project. It was a great success. We completed the borehole last week and it took a few days for the cement to cure. The villagers are now pumping fresh water from 50 meters underground! We had enough money leftover to renovate an old mud hut with new door, windows, roof, wall plaster, concrete flooring, and bunk bed. We are transforming it into a guesthouse for future volunteers and tourists (yes that means all of you are welcome there). We also got bracelets and signed photographs for all the sponsors. I wrote up a 3 page report if you want all the gory details I can send it to you, otherwise we can swap stories over a beer later on. I will post photographs once I find reliable internet. Thanks again for your generosity and interest in this project. If a higher power exists, may it reward you with future blessings and please continue to spread your positive efforts during your brief time here on Earth.
Thanks again!

Donors,
Thanks again for contributing to the Mugiti Water Project! With your help and additional offline contributions, we have reached our fundraising goal of $6,500. We reduced our goal because we found a local drilling company that is sympathetic to our cause and they are giving us a great deal. The people of Mugiti are elated and appreciate your investment in their community. The groundwater survey was conducted last week and the drilling will commence later this week. I will send another update once the project is complete. When my internet connection improves, I will post videos and pictures.
Thanks again! You have made a difference.

We recommend you sit at your computer and hit refresh over and over until their story goes live. You should also scroll down and see if they have a fundraiser going so you can support 'em.
