By the way, this challenge will affect many more than 1000 households because an increment will fall short of meeting the challenge, nearly all attempts will influence people who become aware of just one of them, and untold numbers will be inspired to act when the 1000th to meet the challenge is verified and celebrated.

The announcement of the verification of #1000 will be a high point, not a conclusion.
