Dear Friends and Backers,
First of all a huge “Thank You” for
supporting our project, “The High Cost of Cheap Gas”.
The 30 day crowd-sourcing
campaign led to many great things: South Africa's most watched

returned to your bank accounts this week. The 3,600 USD we raised here
would go a long way in helping us to create a powerful and compelling

We have put a 10K USD budget together for the
new proposal on Indiegogo on a flexible funding model, meaning we get to
use the all of the donations you make. This allows all of you to still
be personally part of this project and makes sure that the story
continues. If you would like to make a direct contribution please let
us know through email or phone.
We would like to thank each one of
you for believing in us and supporting this important work, without you
it would not be possible. Feel free to contact us if you have any
questions, and please sign up to our Facebook page.
Jeffrey and Mira
