      Hello - could we please have an update on the CDs and journals?

      Glad to hear (on my local NPR affiliate) that you're doing new shows. But might it be time for a Kickstarter update? The journals were to be shipped over a year ago, and the CDs (not to replace the journals) were promised in October. I know there was a problem with the journals, but it would be good to know what's going on. Thanks!

      Al, Hi, I know you have had trouble with the journals, but where are we now? Haven't received anything for backing you.

      When I first heard this show, I refused to leave the car until it was over, even though I had found a choice parking spot! I think this show is far, far better than This American Life - really inspiring! I tell everyone I know how good your show is.

      Congrats! So glad you're back on WJCT, loved the live show this past Sunday. Keep doing what you do!

      Hooray, so glad you see you make the goal. I promoted this earlier in the campaign and again today after your plea. Having recently done it, I know what it takes and I'm so glad to see you cross the finish line. Well-deserved and well-done! Lea

      Only $430 left to go! I hope you guys go over! Proud to be a backer of an awesome public radio show.

      Al, Hi, A bit of a cheek I know, but as I upped my pledge any chance of throwing in a DVD as well? Looking forward to you getting funded.

      Hey all, with 330 Backers, no matter what SOTRU can meet its goal. We all need to pledge just another $6.00 if in the next 3 days they aren't at $20,000.
      Good luck SOTRU and Al.

      Al, we need more people like you talking about good "news"! Thanks for doing it!

      Hi! Al,
      I am just a retired old/young lady who is living in Israel and since I do not have the funds to really support your project, I wanted to at least show solidarity. I have some ideas for something that would take in the whole world. When you are ready for that, maybe left me know.
      As you say, too much of the other stuff, let us focus on Hope and Positive things for the USofA and the world.

      Sure Gary! When we reach our goal, we'll contact you to ask for your address. Remind us then to have me sign the DVD. Thanks so much for your support.

      Would it be possible to have Al Letson sign the DVD for Summer in Sanctuary?
