Dear Marcelo, I'm an Airborne Ranger Paramedic in Afghanistan and I was looking on the google search engine and I found your wonderful dream. Just wanted to wish you luck and express how truly proud I am of your perseverance and determination.



With a little research, I found this web-site, after reading an article in The Toronto Sun about Marcelo's Dream into Action. A most inspiring story, one that has given me the impetus to take the next leap in my own life. I too, want to make a difference in this world, and i believe I can through my writing. My greatest love is writing Children's stories, nature poetry and some day I hope to write a book, that will inspire others to reach for their rainbow, whatever it may be.

My daughter, who is 11 now was just studying resources in class recently and i'm going to talk to her teacher about what I've found out here, and how one person can make a difference.

Thanks Marcelo for the inspiration.

I love your Mission Statement and your Commitment...it is complimentary to mine. I have a small Environmental Engineering Co. focussing on Air Quality...returning it to the level of purity we inherited. Eco-efficiency and Green Energy are the basis for each of my projects.I support you in spirit and if there is any other way to help, please let me know.


Emerson J. H., Port Stanley, ON

Hi Guys and Gals, good luck on your undertaking,at my age, I can only wish you all the best,I am a vet. from D-day on a small pension from being hurt over there.Again all the best to you and I pray that you will see your aim a great success.


Daniel M.

My name is Daniel M. and I operate a renewable energy company in Newfoundland and Labrador. I recently read a newspaper article about the trek that your group is about to take on, and I think that is a great way to show the general public about solar energy and efficiency. Adding to that, solar energy works in all parts of the world and what a great country to showcase that, than to drive from "coast to coast". I am located in the town of Clarenville 200 km west of St.John's NL, and I am offering my cottage (powered by both photovoltaics and wind energy) for the team to stay in if you wish to do so. It is located just 20 km west of Clarenville, 1 km off the TCH at Thorburn Lake. Also if you would like for me to assist in the tour as it passes through our area I would more than glad to help.


Joe, NY

I just saw the segment about your car on the Discovery channel. I hope you succeed. I have no substantial suggestion for you. Of course if I do think of anything I will contact you. I can also tell my students about xof1. (I teach college physics at St. John's University in Queens, NY.) Regardless, I hope God blesses the work at your hands and you succeed at this task.



I am fascinated with your project and will be watching it all the way. Good luck and best regards.


Ricardo B, Mississauga, ON

I saw our piece in the Discovery Channel - Daily Planet program last night and I would like to wish you and our team good luck on the Power of One project, it was very inspiring. Being an engineer, I can definitely appreciate the amount of work is required to accomplished something like this. Once again, boa sorte de mais un Brasileiro.

Bruce, San Diego, CA

In July of 1990, I had a dream to build a solar car and race in the 1993 World Solar Challenge in Australia. In November of 1993 I stood on the starting line of the race next to our car the Suntrakker. I wish you all the luck and support in the world. What you are doing will make a difference in peoples lives far beyond what you expect.
