Great Exposure

Hi Pledgers,

This month’s update has been a tad later than I would have hoped for, but it has been a really busy month. I have just today managed to get all my ducks in a row and the first thing on my to-do list was to write and update you guys.

Thank you so much for your support, it has been quite a journey so far. An awesome journey, even though we do still have a little way to go!

Someone call the press! we are 22% funded, this is an awesome leap, I remember when we were just 4% funded and had only a handful of supporters. Big up to that first group of pledgers. We now have around 90 pledgers :-) and now that I am back in the game (after a one(ish)-week hiatus due to a cross country total life relocation) I will be actively crowdfunding once again to ensure we reach 100%.

As I mentioned before, last month was amazing for Yeseni's exposure and here's why. Someone literally called the press because we had an article in Bristol 24/7:

Another article in Oshawa Today:

And an interview on Ujima radio Culture Shock podcast. Listen to the edited version of the interview in the above attachment to this update. Just Click Play. The full version of the show is in the following hyperlink and Yeseni's interview starts 33:30 mins into the programme;

This exposure bought in quite a few new pledges so thank you so much new pledgers! Welcome to the 'Dream makers Club'.  I have quite a few more exciting ideas up my sleeve so I look forward to updating you very soon.

If you guys have any ideas on spreading the word about Yeseni, I would love to hear from you, and please can I implore you to tell all your friends and family about the project, that way we can move forward a lot faster and get fully funded!

We have quite a few pledge levels to choose from so nobody should be left thinking that they'd love to support but just can't afford to. 

Thank you so much for all your support and I look forward to sharing some good news with you very soon.

All the best and speak very soon!
