    Congratulations to the 20 Finalists and to our Supporters. We came this far, because of your massive support and contributions. It can just take one idea/project to transform the world we live.

    To the Finalists, keep pushing! I leave us with this inspiration from Keith J. Davis, ‘If you have a goal, be relentless in your pursuit’.
