    Question - "What does having a dream mean to you?"
    Answer - "A dream is a goal glimmering in the distance; it is an inner calling which, when accomplished,
    serves as the rite of passage into wisdom." Erden Eruç - Sep 17, 2004

    We succeeded!
    August 31, 2013    
    Our 30-day Kickstarter campaign to finance the production costs of our upcoming documentary Castaway with Purpose ended on August 18th. A total of 286 backers pledged an average of $262 each to fund our campaign at 150% level. Our backers pledged a total of $75,041 giving me and our production team a clear nod of approval. It is now time for our team to produce a compelling documentary.

    I will tell the story of our "Kickstarter Launch" gathering on the 18th in the next dispatch, with additional images. Our team: Dannul Dailey, Graeme Welsh and Kevin Mullarky kept the buzz going through the event, and even made a last minute call on a whim when our total seemed final at $73,541 with minutes to go. Let me just say that we have a gracious set of backers who were as excited to see us succeed as they were in participating in our campaign.

    We will communicate with our backers from the Kickstarter page to obtain their mailing addresses and other relevant information to deliver their swags. We matched different levels of contributions with varying swags on the right hand side column of the same. Over time, we will upgrade our "Castaway with Purpose" website to be our meeting point for updates, fragments, merchandise, DVDs, etc.
