      Hi everyone!

      We just received the pillows and they passed our test!! Youpi!

      Therefore, we will be receiving the sleeves early next week and then start to ship by the end of June/beginning of July.

      All of you should expect to receive the pillow this summer!

      We know it has been a long wait but it's all coming to an end and we are super excited to share it with you!

      On this beautiful sunny day we wish you the greatest trip to come and most importantly the deepest sleep!

      I'm getting slightly concerned that there has been no update as of yet considering the date. No responses from the Facebook page either in an attempt to validate to purchase more.

      Hi Sylvain,

      I was wondering if I could change my shipping address since I would be moving before the delivery?

      Thanks for all the updates! It's great to hear the progress.

      I just got the survey now to fill out, so I guess I am behind everyone! I see that it is not to be delivered until August, so I hope that my survey/address has not been submitted to late!
      I was backer 139, so am excited that I backed this project.

      Hi Tambra, everyone who has pledge for 2 (in terms of money) will receive 2. Therefore, don't worry because we are aware of your situation.

      Ditto to Emily’s comment “I received survey but I pledged for 2 pcs and the survey won't let me change it. It is saying I have a credit and I don't know how to change it.” Wrote you, but with no response. Please clarify.

      Hi everyone :)

      We understood that some of you haven't received the survey. We encourage those to use this link https://monpere-sleep-tool-a-new-breed-of-travel-pillow.backerkit.com/.

      Hello,
      Just checking in to see if a survey for the addresses has been sent out yet?
      I put in a pledge during the Holiday Special period with the estimated delivery being March 2018, is this still in track or has the delivery date changed?

      Hi Sylvain - je suis aussi un père (google translate :) )

      Anyway, I frequently travel due to my work and been dreaming of a similar product since "neck pillows" just don't work - and finally, this is perfect. Upon seeing it, I immediately signed up. I'm so glad i've seen the project and it is pushing through. I just can't wait of using it.

    29. Sylvain Creator on

      Hi Annie, and Paul, both of your message have been respond.

      Just to make sure that we are transparent with everyone -
      1. Paul I confirmed to you that you paid for 3 units as we discussed and that you will receive precisely 3 pillows.

      2. Annie, we will be sending the survey for the addresses right after the holiday, in couple days.

      Thank you so much for your follow up :)

      Happy holidays to all of you!!

      Best,

      Sylvain

      I send a mail earlier, but got no response.
      I pledged for 3 pieces for a amount of $270, but my credit card was only charged for 2 ( And received an conformation for 2)
      Hopefully you can lighten up the situation.... I'm in need of 3.
      Hope you can tell me some good news

      @John Whitehill Jr.:
      This pledge amount includes shipping which varies depending on your country. After selecting your pledge tier there was a country selection and also the total amount was shown.

    34. John Whitehill Jr. on

      So theres a holiday special for $75, but through kickstarter you are charging me $97?

      Can’t wait to get mine. Well done on reaching your funding target

    36. Sylvain Creator on

      Thank you Olivier!

      To get a second pillow, you only need to upgrade your pledge amount by 2. So if it's $93 with shipping, it becomes $186 :)

      Hi, I just pledged for the holiday special, for one monpère, can I extend this for a second one ? Didn’t find a way to do this ... cheers and congrats for the cool idea, really looking forward to getting mine, Olivier

      Bon, je craque !

      Après deux très mauvaises expériences sur KickStarter, presque 3, malgré avoir soutenu 60 projets, je ne faisais même plus de contribution minimum encore moins ouvrir les courriels.

      Mais, "mon père", quelle bonne idée vous avez la ! Assez pour me tenter à nouveau d'aider, ainsi qu'avoir (j'espère) un produit utile. Ce sera un cadeau, un peu tard même si livrer date prévue (mars 2018). Comme on dit, ce n'est jamais trop tard pour bien faire. La personne a besoin de ceci pour ses déplacements quotidiens, une heure d'autobus matin et soir.

      J'aurai fait une plus grosse contribution afin d'en avoir qqs-uns de plus. Mais j'ai encore le mauvais goût en bouche des abus envers les contribuables par quelques projets KickStarter, autant par leurs créateurs que ... et oui, KickStarter qui n'a rien fait pour éviter ces situations ou même minimiser les risques de tous.

      Je vais me limiter qu'à une contribution, avec avantage BackerClub, et voir ce qui se passera avec ce projet. Il mérite l'appui. Après tout, qui ne peut pas faire confiance à Raphaëlle ?

      //

      Well, I have to try this one !

      After two very bad experience with KickStarter, almost 3, even with having pledged to some 60 projects, I was not even making the token minimal pledge to projects I could believe in, much less open KickStarter related emails.

      But, "mon père", what a great idea you have here ! Enough to tempt me to want to help, as well as receive (I hope) such a useful item. It will be for a gift, somewhat late even if it is delivered by the promised date (March 2018). As we say, it's never too late to do good. The person does need this for her daily hour long bus trips, morning and evening.

      I would of pledged more to get a few more. But I still have the sour taste in mouth of the abuse towards backers from both the creators of those few projects and, yes, KickStarter itself which did nothing to avoid those situations and did not even try to minimize the risks to all.

      I will limit my pledge to a single unit, with BackerClub advantage, and see how this project turns out. It deserves the support. After all, how can we not trust Raphaëlle ?

      Hi Sylvain and Rafaelle!
      I was a little bit slow finding this great-looking product! I made my pledge for the amount of one pillow (plus shipping) a few minutes ago, while the timer said something like 60 minutes left for the Black Friday sale - just curious if it still counts for this sale price or if I will need to increase the pledge?
      Thanks in advance, and good luck! I am excited for my flights or long train rides to be more comfortable :)

      Just to confirm, I did the CyberMonday deal for $72+$12 shipping times 2. Total was $168. Just want to be clear that I want 2.

      Hi Emily,

      What you did is absolutely right!
      Thank you for your incredible support.

    44. Emily Ng on

      I'm in Canada and pledged $164 for 2 pillows. Is my pledge amount correct?

    45. Sylvain Creator on

      Hi Phil,
      That's exactly that. If you are outside of Canada you only need to upgrade the pledge amount of the black Friday special to $176. That will include 2 pillows and 2 shipping. Thank you so much! I'm here if you need anything.

    46. Phil Lam on

      I want to get 2 of them at the Black Friday pledge amount. Do I just pledge double the amount and select that? How do I specify that I want 2?

      @Tomer Gad:
      This campaign is still running for 12 days and they won't see any money unless it succeeds (which is very likely since they are currently at 166% of their funding goal).
      Only then you will be actually charged and then later they will start collecting necessary information like shipping addresses.

      There is a built-in survey functionality in Kickstarter which is often used for this purpose but sometimes project creators use external tools.

      Hi first time for me backing a project on Kickstarter...
      Why didn't it asked for my address for shipping the pillow?
