I think the issue should be less about what the state of the economy is in Chile, but what projects there are here in the western US that deserve this attention. There are several that come to mind that might be significantly quicker to generate funding and have a much more direct impact on this "user base".....

GARNA’s mission is to foster stewardship of the resources of the greater Arkansas River region through education, volunteerism and experiences.

You've got a point there Logan but I don 't see why you can't care about is normal for indie film makers to seek funding from whoever they can...perhaps not a whitewater forum..but hey...

True we should focus on our water issues here in our own country but why can't we be concerned about both? I am also concerned about the spread of our influence on Ecuador, cayo is right - odds are some American company will fund the dam and reap the profits instead of the indigenous people of Ecuador. Making 3rd world countries indebted to 1st world countries is the new form of global imperialism.

Sounds like jealousy, or you're just an old cranky fart, and please don't send me some lame ass personal message again because we don't agree on something.

some really cool guys in the colorado kayaking community trying to spread the love internationally should be proud. as for the kooks, you should be ashamed. you should embrace these inspired paddlers trying to provide endless love for generations to come.

We deleted about a dozen nasty posts and responses to them and then closed this thread so our team could talk about how to handle this situation. Rather then leave the thread closed which would serve only as a disservice to the folks who started this thread to raise awareness to their project, we have decided to re-open it.

WARNING: Please read our Community Rules (link) and don't be nasty and extremely rude to each other. We are trying to foster a community where there is at least some respect between members and if you can't stand someone then deal with that outside of Mountain Buzz. If this discussion once again derails then we will close it again and don't blame the management, it's not our fault. Please respect each other enough so we can move forward productively. Spring is almost here, be patient!

First of all thanks to everyone who has already supported our project! Rolling out for Chile this afternoon and wanted to make one more plea for support. Apologies of anyone was offended but in the end it seems like we always come to a forward looking resolution. Our film is going to be badass and we need your help to reach our goal. We've only got until Monday evening and we are currently at 73%.
