Week 1: Updates

Week 1 Recap

The first week of our campaign ended last night and we are so thankful for the tremendous support you’ve given – nearly $10,000 in one week! It’s really been a great response, and we are so grateful for the many generous contributions. Thank you!!!

We also had a couple of media pieces last week and you can check those out here:

– Interview on the Bob Hagan Show (ItsRelevant.com)

– Article on GreenwichPatch.com: “No 9-1-1 Service in Your Country? A Greenwich Native Improvises”

– The BEACON White Paper is now posted on HealthUnbound.org

We’re always eager to spread the word, so if you have any media contacts, please feel free to send them to us! (trekmedics.iggcampaign-at-gmail.com)

Perk Updates

We’ve finalized the colors and design for a couple of our perks, and we think you’ll be impressed with what we’re offering as a way to say “thank you!”

Please be sure to spread the word with your friends, family, and co-workers, and if you’re not following us on social media, you can follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or Instagram to get regular updates.

We’re so glad for the great start, and we’ve got a long way to go, so please help us spread the word and raise more support – everything help’s and everything’s appreciated!!

Thank you!
