My dear Chimu I am sitting here with tears streaming down my face, gratitude pouring out of me, and a million thank you’s is not enough. I do not think you will ever realize what your money means to us. Please know we can now continue to work in our communities, we can get to the children who have been raped by the very people who are supposedto love and protect them. We can get that child to a hospital, we can save a life and you need to know how humbled I feel tonight. You are our hero Chimu. Thank you for believing in us, thank you for helping us to save so many little lives and thank you for saving us with your generosity. We will never forget what you did for us. Again a million thank you”s, I simply have no words tonight to express my gratitude.
The Bobbi Bear team wishes you and your team many blessings and may you go from strength to strength. You are truly heroes for all the good you do.
Please just let me know what paperwork you need from me so that I can get that to you soonest.
Attached our banking details
Again Chimu. …..respect and gratitude
Warm regards

CANADA PROJECT

Hey my friend,

I honestly don’t know how to thank you for this incredible gesture. It blows my mind that this is even real. I would like you to know that I am incredibly grateful for your generosity and every penny will
be used very wisely and 100% towards the construction and implementation of this platform.

I can’t do it all alone and so your donation will be invested in the building blocks of what I know will become an amazing space for kids to connect with adventurers, people, cultures, charity projects, all in one place, all with the intent to make the world a better place with a focus on young people and the communities we love so much abroad.

This investment in me and the platform pulls all that together in one space. I’m so excited to share all of the details with you. I promise you will be proud and hopefully you’ll even want to be one of our featured adventurers one day!

From the centre of my heart, thank you. You’ve enabled me and relieved me of incredible pressure and if I’m able to credit one angel investor, no more perfect person or foundation than you and yours.

Gracias, gracias, gracias.

In humble sincere appreciation.

INDIVIDUAL DONOR

Hi David,

I had to write to you about this. I started a draft of this letter and it has disappeared into cyberspace, so if you receive something similar to this, please forgive the double email.

I have attached a picture of the two bracelets that spoke to me. Ever since I have put them on, I have found myself wondering……

Who is the person who made this?
What is their life like?
What is their daily routine?
Are they happy?
How are they feeling right now?
Are they concerned about something?
Who are they as a person?

I never expected this bracelet to have such an effect on me. It is a physical representation of the knowing I have that we are all One. It reminds me that we are all connected, that my choices effect others, and of the authenticity of their culture. It has challenged me to live authentically!

I did not expect such a small donation to have such a dramatic impact. I can only imagine the return received from seeing a passion project to completion!

Someone in the Shipibo has truly touched a life and made it better.

Thank you for the work you do!

Sincerely,

Eileen Brzoska

PRESENTATION AUDIENCE

I’m glad I came too. I was very impressed by your son-in law’s sincerity, commitment, bravery (“I would risk my life to get the money to these people”), and competence. Talk about a can-do guy! I was also appalled by the waste and ineptitude in the government programs and in most NGOs. David’s (Chimu) way seems like an obvious better choice – hope others will take note. One takeaway for me was the importance of empowering people to do for themselves rather than just doing for them with no real regard for what they actually want/need.

~C

David (Chimu),
Thoughts that David (Chimu) presented last night still resonant in my mind! What a worthwhile yet challenging path he has laid out for himself as well as for Beth and their family. It was a privilege to hear Chimu present his thoughts and plans. I truly had no idea Intiraymi Fund was so far-reaching already. It is doubtful I have met a more interesting person.

Thank you!

Blessings,
Marianne
