Just a few lines to share the latest news before leaving for Cape Verde ...
Thanks to everyone who participated and made the event in Bologna possible, it has been a great success! Some very welcoming friends have opened 3 adjacent houses in the historical center of the city and offered canapés and refreshments to more than one hundred people who attended the two presentations by Matchbox Media and Sandgrains.
The evening brought new ideas and connections and allowed us to crowdfund £1,114 for the production of the documentary! THANKS SO MUCH TO EVERYONE!!
The next day we got some more good news!
Finally, after various meetings, the British NGO 'Global Ocean' donated £1,180 to 'Sandgrains' an amount that will cover the travel and equipments costs of Andrew, our underwater cameraman.
In short, the end of this year is giving us solid hopes regarding the practical possibilities of crowdsourcing and crowdfunding. At the moment we reached £8,026 and the total target is £10,000, with a total of 88 donors!
There is only one more week to go until the end of our crowdfunding campaign and there are real possibilities to reach the target!
We are asking you all one last effort! Please forward this project to friends and family, share it on social media, or if you can, contribute with a donation!
In the meantime, we wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
