Rewards are Shipping!

Posted by Landfill Harmonic (Creator)

Dear backers, 

Thank you very much for the patience and understanding! 

We wanted to let you know that as of today, more than 70% of the rewards have been sent out. We have a backlog with the remaining 30% due to a delay in the t-shirts production, which will resume this week. We expect all orders to be shipped by the end of January. 

As the rewards fulfilment stage approaches its completion, we want to once again extend our most heartfelt appreciation for your support in what has been a very challenging project. We are truly proud of the positive impact that this film project has had on the Reycled Orchestra of Cateura and their community, and feel truly humbled to served in spreading accross the world the imoprtant message of hope, ingenuity and resilience that the children in the orchestra, their families, the luthiers and Director Favio Chavez continue to cultivate in their day by day lives. 

If you have any questions or issues, please send us an email to and we will do our best to address them.

With Love and Gratitude,

The Landfill Harmonic Team

      I sent an email on January 13 for which I am still awaiting a response.

      Still waiting to find out what is going on. I have not received my reward. I expect at least communication. You didnt respond to my email in January and are ignoring your kickstartee backers!

      Hi folks,

      In the last email from you (January 10) you said most rewards had shipped and only 30% were left to send.
      Well, it's February 2 and I haven't received anything yet. (I'm a $50 donor).
      Can you please look into this?
      I think I've been more than patient, and although I still wholeheartedly support the project, this is getting a bit ridiculous.

      I missed the deadline to reply to the reward survey and submitted it today. Will I still receive my DVD and other items?

      Are you really not going to address the issue about the digital download? If you have a look on the main comment page there are quite a few disappointed backers, including me.
      I typed out a rather lengthy comment over there so I am not going to repost it here, but I really think you should tell us what's up.
