It started small and took off like a rocket. First, there were 100 volunteers, then 1,000; 5,000; 10,000 and then more. The goal by the end of 2011 was 10,000 but more than 20,000 volunteers have signed up. They come from every walk of life in more than 50 countries around the world, including Russia, Brazil, Canada, China, Africa, Thailand, Mongolia, the United States and the Philippines.
