Hey Everyone!!

Just a note to say THANK YOU for making a pledge to help Justice pon di become a book. We are now funded with two days to go. 

I am really happy and excited about moving the project on to the next phase. To be honest, I was nervous about my funding goal. It's a lot of money to me and I didn't want to ask for too much, not be able to raise it and lose out completely. I can't believe we did it with days remaining.

I spent hours entering the email addresses of elementary school principals in Oakland,Berkeley, Albany, Piedmont, San Francisco and West Contra Costa County. I wanted to make the schools aware of the book and seek pledges. A few made pledges! I will be contacting these schools again when the book is done about visiting to do readings. 

I have been in touch with my very thorough proof reader and will be sending the final final text to the graphic designer by the end of the week. 

I am going to keep plugging away trying to get the word out... a lot can happen in two days!! I would love to be able to get a promotional poster  made and who knows....maybe we will be able to do more books!

Just wanted to let you all know that thanks to all of you we made it!

To each and every one of you...thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Justice sends his thanks too!!
