      Hello. Can you kindly let me know when would my reward be shipped? I haven't received any confirmation or tracking number for the shipment, nor have I received any packages. It's becoming a bit concerning for me as some backers have commented that they received the shipment last month.

      Got my coasters today and they're even more beautiful then I expected! I'm afraid to use them because I don't want to mess them up! Lol Thanks again and I look forward to any future projects you start on Kickstarter!

      Thank you very much. I've already hanged the piece of rug/carpet frame. It is a symbol of peace. Good luck with everything!

      This is such a wonderful project. So far, I've backed a "lost our lease" bakery, a start-up restaurant, The Sioux Chef, and now this wonderful project! Thanks for letting me lend a hand.

      This is a wonderful project! I am a weaver myself, and I know how much satisfaction and peace can be created with this craft. I have in the past worked with children in California and will again volunteer at the Gaenslen School in Milwaukee in June. Very excited about the coasters!

      Sam hit the nail on the head with those sentiments. Very happy to be a part of this wonderful project. They might complain but I'll try and get our backers involved by giving it a mention.

      Best wishes to all involved.

      I am very touched and deeply impressed. I am not sure how to reach out to the founder, but in the future I have a vision for a joint project I have thought about for many years. I would like to do a write up for my blog as well.

      I'm incredibly proud to support this project. Joshua and his team are not only helping Syrian refugees, but they're proving out a model of using startup and business strategies to mitigate problems in unconventional ways. Government aid is great, but helping people in need create their own sustainability is even better!

      Go AnkaCoop go!
