Hello everyone! 

As you might already know by now, I am extremely happy to announce that my fashion project is officially successful! The project ended with a grand total of $5,186 raised in just 30 days. Even though it seems like such a short time, these past 4 weeks were some of the longest, anxiety-inducing but exciting times. The outpouring of supportive messages, advice and random acts of kindness (even from strangers!) really surprised and encouraged me, and I can say I learned a lot from this experience.   

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all of you who pledged. Thanks to you, I will now be able to take NYANGA creations to higher levels. As I mentioned in my introduction, my plan is to produce quality and affordable African fashion in a socially responsible way. I am now one step closer to achieving this vision. I sincerely appreciate each and every one of my backers because out of all the people who knew about and viewed my project, you were the ones that took action and made it happen with your pledges. So as promised, you are all invited to the launch party next fall! I will be working diligently until then to make sure it is an event you won’t forget. 

Very important: I will be sending out surveys shortly to gather all the information I need to send you your rewards. Please be on the lookout for these surveys, and please fill out and return them ASAP so I can fulfill your rewards in a timely manner. Another very important thing: please check your Amazon and bank account as well as the status of your payment, to ensure that your funds were all sent and received. If you're having trouble paying with Amazon, you also have the option to "Donate" the pledged amount through Paypal, on the NYANGA creations website (http://www.makenyanga.com/services).  Once all of the above is done, I will gladly put your package in the mail! 

So once again, to everyone who supported either financially or in any other way, thank you very much, because this literally would not have been possible without you.

Take care, all the best! 


Marie
