Good morning everyone! I have GREAT news to report.
We are now 80% funded!!! VERY EXCITING!
Thank you for all the wonderful support!
As I am preparing to head out to Mes Aynak next month, I am hearing that the Thai government, Smithsonian and US State Dept. (with help and video from this campaign) has been making inroads with the Afghan government to protect Mes Aynak.
So let's keep it up!
Now is the time to RAMP UP international support for Mes Aynak. We really need an international organization like UNESCO to get involved to preserve Mes Aynak for future generations.
But the odds are still against us due to $100 billion dollars of copper directly under the Buddhist city, the volatile Taliban presence in Logar, and the 2014 US troop pullout that could leave Afghanistan in chaos.
So we still have a lot of work to do!
Please continue to help spread the word and support the Kickstarter campaign.
We are $6,000 away from our goal of $30,000!http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/472 ... -mes-aynak
Since the campaign has been SO SUCCESSFUL, we are looking at potential STRETCH GOALS.
If we reach $40,000, we want to include a Thai section of the documentary that interviews ALL the key supporters in Thailand that have fought so hard for Mes Aynak.
So let's try to keep the campaign going above and beyond the Kickstarter goal!
Again, thanks for reading and for all the AMAZING support!
