The Kickstarter for

is going on now!


Click any stretch goal image to learn more about the reward:
















The way the tickets reward work works is that we will ask the $100 and up backers "who wants to go?" and of all the people that say "me!" we will pick the top six backers, by dollars.  So this might be a good time to raise your backer level by $1, or $2, or $4.57 - to set yourself a little ahead of others.  Event tickets are non-transferable - not able to be used by a spouse, friend or relative.  The ticket is for the kickstarter backer only.  So, if there is somebody you think would enjoy the ticket, we suggest that you tell that person to back the kickstarter.


Kickstarter Kickback
We'd like to reward people who refer their friends to our kickstarter.  
The pay out math is pretty simple and quite generous.  
Get your kickback link HERE



a bit about the movie

      Rocket Mass Heaters are possibly the most powerful solution to many of the problems confronting individuals and the global population today.  For individuals, Rocket Mass Heaters can save thousands of dollars and bring greater comfort. Around our world, if a billion people used Rocket Mass Heaters as their primary source of heat, it would solve a list of global issues. The only barrier to this solution is . . . knowledge.

     That's where you come in!  If this project is funded, we will be one step closer to our goal of global impact through free, earth-friendly heat.

$100 as promised.

I would have backed it at launch, but I was busy transferring data to a new phone.
I was happily surprised to see it darn near half funded already. Good job Paul and everyone working on this project!

I got my pledge in.  Looks like we are now less than $300 away from hitting the goal, or should I say first goal!

How cool was it that I received my package from the last kickstarter today......and also backed the new one, all in the same day!

Maybe this will be the one to hit one million! Go baby go!
