I'm really amazed that the goal is near.
I'm supporting the crowdfunding of Minamizawa Hydrangea Mountain from May 6, 2017, and now JPY 1,338,000 raised of JPY 1,500,000. Now we are in the final spurt with the achievement rate of 89% and required additional donations of JPY 162,000.
In the very beginning of my support, I was indeed wondering whether we could achieve the goal. You can understand my feeling from my Facebook post quoted below.
One old man grew 100,000 Hydrangea alone in 47 years here in Minamizawa Hydrangewa Mountain. We are conducting the crowdfunding to hand it down from generation to generation. Donation courses of JPY 10,000 or more invite you to plant your own Hydrangea in the mountain! We need around one million yen in the next 16 days. It must be a tough challenge but we are looking forward to your donations and cooperations!
We now have less than half the period of the crowdfunding but the achievement ratio is only 30%. If this were just a normal business, I must have been totally blue. Does crowdfunding offer an accelerated growth curve by social network sharing...?
Around JPY 700,000 raised of JPY 1,500,000 goal at this moment. Half the donation goal is nearby, but we only have 15 days left out of the original crowdfunding period of 40 days. It is not clear yet whether we can achieve the goal or not... We are very looking forward to your donations and shares!
We need JPY 800,000 in the next 12 days for the crowdfunding to protect Minamizawa Hydranea Mountain. It is tough. But you know, his challenge to grow 10,000 Hydrangea alone in 47 years must be tougher than this project... Time is limited so I decided to do all I can. The first is to translate the introduction of crowdfunding in Japanese into English. If you love to read English, please try it. *laugh*
The achievement ratio is over 50%! We have 11 days left. We are very looking forward to your donations and shares in this crowdfunding of Minamizawa Hydrangea Mountain!
The achievement ratio is 53% now, and over JPY 800,000 is raised!

The achievement ratio is 63% now, and over JPY 958,000 is raised! One million yen is nearby. It is now more probable that we achieve JPY 1,500,000 total in the next nine days. We are looking forward to your donations!

I woke up and found that over JPY 1,300,000 is raised...! the crowdfunding of Minamizawa Hydrangea Mountain is about to welcome its goal!! Make sure you see this big event!!!
It looks like we've got more and more donations since May 22. I was really amazed to see this especially because I saw we had few donations each day in the beginning of May.
From now on, we just need JPY 162,000 to achieve the goal in the next five days. It is very likely that we achieve the goal if we can keep this growth of the last several days. We do our best. We are very looking forward to your donations and shares!
