modernmormonmen.com published a post about Luciano Concha and the amazing progress so far.
Kevin Klar (editor of “Two Brothers”) put together a short film designed to be shared on Facebook to help get his situation viral. Post it on Facebook! Social media allows us to promote causes like this very effectively and with hardly any effort. Don’t wait! Do it now!
(After sending him the most recent message I received in the “contact” tab)
Luciano: me da gusto que gente tan buena me conosca y le doy las gracias por su apollo de corazon le digo que yo estoy eternamente agradecido
-It makes me feel really good that that so many people know me and from the heart, I’m so grateful for their support and I am eternally grateful.
Me: Sabes que mas que 344 personas sienten lo mismo? hasta ahora hemos juntado $25,265 americanos de mas que 344 personas diferentes.
-Did you know that more than 344 people feel exactly the same way? At this point we have gathered $25,265 from more than 344 different people.
Luciano: ooo genial me alegro muchisimo dele este mensaje de mi parte a todos los donadores
digales *hola muchas grcias por todo su apoyo a pesar de mis dolencias y problemas economicos ustedes me han ayudado demasiado para mi planes futuros me gustaria conocerlos para darles las gracias personalmente muchas gracias a todos un medio abrazo con el doble de fuerza.
-Wow, that’s amazing. The message about all of the donors makes me really happy. Tell them…
Thank you so much for all your support. Despite my pains and economic problems you have helped me in an overwhelming way for my future plans and I would love to know each of you so that I can thank you personally.
Thanks so much to everyone. A half hug with with twice the strength!
(In Chile, “a hug” is a phrase commonly used at the end of letters to show affection)
Luciano has had an infection since the surgery and been stuck with EXTREMELY limited mobility, he has access to facebook though. Add him as a friend. Give him a message of moral support, I know he would really appreciate that right now.
He should be the first result when you search for Luciano Alejandro Araneda Concha.
What an amazing outpouring of support. In only a few days we’ve already raised over $24,000 from 342 different people! In only five days we have one of the broadest bases of supporters on Fundly.com. I had no idea we would have such a strong response in such a short amount of time.
Thank you to everyone that has contributed in any way. Don’t forget that you can use the “contact” tab to send a message to Luciano. Just title it “To Luciano”
The Facebook “shares” on this site combined have passed 400! To get an idea of the significance of that, look at the number of “likes” or “shares” on today’s most popular news articles. Thank you so much for using social media to spread the word. If you haven’t, I encourage you to go to the homepage and press the Facebook “share” button on the bottom. It is easy to do, and one of the fastest ways to spread the word.
I told Luciano that we had raised over $20,000.
His message to everyone was…
In Spanish: Le doy las gracias a todos por su apollo de corazon les digo mil gracias y de una u otra forma yo se los pagare lo unico que les puedo decir ahora es gracias por todo
In English: Thank you everyone for your support. From the heart, thank you a thousand times over. In one way or another I will pay all of you back… All I can say right now is thank you for everything.
That is enough for five years of prosthetics! At this point Luciano will have prosthetics until he is 24 years old. Just awesome. And messages keep rolling in from people that have access to prosthetics or have resources to do fundraisers. More updates on this as things materialize.
ALSO: Many have reported getting a message that the money is going to “Official Best of Fest” This is an error. The money is going into a separate fund and is going to the right place. We are working on the message right now. We apologize for the confusion.
Many have been asking if they can send a message to Luciano to offer support. You absolutely may, just leave a comment in the “contact” section. Preferably in Spanish, but if not my friends and I can translate it. This would be such an awesome thing for Luciano right now. At the beginning just type “To Luciano.” You may also find him on facebook. Look him up: Luciano Alejandro Araneda Concha!
