    Again, this campaign was not just about the water and the well. This is
    about the people and the future we want to build. This is our report
    back to friends, families, people and
    groups around the world who gave their support for us to access that
    precious water from the sun. Despite the many obstacles, we implemented
    the project in 5 months. Thank you and looking forward to an abundant
    harvest in 2016.

    Please go to Our Quest for Water: The Journey to read our updates on the solar pump. Thank you.

    From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much for the gift of water. We are grateful for everybody who helped and supported us in “Our Quest for Water” crowd funding campaign. We are overwhelmed with the love we received these past few weeks. Because of this we’ll have that water from the sun.

    Hi everyone,

    These past few weeks were a rollercoaster ride for us, lots of ups and downs and whirlwind emotions.  It’s not easy to do crowd funding especially that we still need to do some work in the farm.  Fortunately we have some friends and relatives who volunteered their time to be our tribe of campaigners, hands down to their dedication, determination and relentlessness.

    The following are just some of the support we got since we launched the campaign last month.

    Our good friend Roda Novenario, blogged about our campaign. See it here: http://traveldiveconnect.com/pitak-project-quest-for-water/

    We also have some media friends who helped us reach out to a wider crowd by featuring our campaign.  Our story came out in a national daily, The Philippine Daily Inquirer last March 18.  Read it here:  http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/679575/ecofarm-launches-online-drive-to-raise-water-funds

    We were also the feature story of an e-news magazine. You can check it out here: http://issuu.com/one_luzon/docs/vol.5_no.062

    Our good friend, the award-winning TV and movie actress Angel Aquino, even took a break from her busy schedule to shoot a short video endorsement of our campaign.  Watch it here: https://vimeo.com/123736450

    We are grateful for those who believe in us and pledged.  We are grateful for the countless “shares” of the link.  A simple share can go a long way.  Somebody, somewhere will see the link and pledge.

    We’re almost there, please give it a kick.

    Thank you.
