Light refreshments will be available. This will be the chance for me to explain in more details Tnalak and our project and to hand over the tokens. Please inform me through my e-mail : Peter.firstname.lastname@example.org to tell me to which event you will be attending (or if you can not attend, so I can send you the token).
After each event, for those who have more time, we will show the film «Kna the dreamweaver» a beautiful film in Tboli language (english sub-titles) that takes place in Lake Sebu.
Looking forward to meeting you all there

To All Crowd Funding Backers
I am Jenita B. Eko, the president of Tnalak Tau Sebu, and at the same time the president of LASIWWAI, a popular organization producing authentic high quality fabrics made out of natural abaca fiber exclusively grown in Lake Sebu, Province of South Cotabato, Mindanao Island, Philippines.
I feel delighted and inspired having a privilege to extend my thank you message to all the people who had a very big heart to support our Crowd funding activity even in a short span of time.
Thank you to Peter Damary, our Swiss G.I Consultant, who faithfully keeps an eye to the Crowd funding details and updates. We also glad to have his daughter Tamara for helping TTS about video Clips used in Crowd funding.
We will be organizing to get the rewards to you in March and April. For those of you in Switzerland, Peter will be going to Switzerland in April and will take the rewards with him (he will also be presenting the project in different venues to which you will be invited). For those in other countries, including the Philippines, we will mail them. And for all of you, please come and see us in Lake Sebu!
To reiterate, your help is great tool to put in place our quality control and labelling system. This will insure all our weavers a promising income out from our Tnalak fabric that finally leading to improving our families lives, maintaining our rich cultural heritage and preserving our forests.
In behalf of TTS, Thank you very much for keeping us moving and helping us in reaching our aspiration in life as a proud indigenous people in Philippines! Soon we will give you updates on the use the proceeds of our crowd funding. May the Peace of God be upon you all.
