Kickstarter Update #1 - Paddling Our Canoe

Dear Friends,

We have already screamed past the 12% fund-raising mark and it’s all due to you. 

Woo Hoo! 

Beat The Drums!

With the kind of support you have given us right at the start, we are confident of making our goal and producing this important book project In Their Hands: The Keepers of the Box of Treasures

But we are not taking any chances.

This first week is the most important BECAUSE it is when the Kickstarter staff notice those projects doing spectacularly well.  They may pick us for their Projects We Love. They send those projects’ names out in an email blast and then In Their Hands gets us in front of thousands of more eyes and brings more attention to the project. That translates into many more backers of this project of memories, heart and stories you have already generously supported with your pledge.

So, how do we get there?

Could you help us out?

#1 COULD YOU EMAIL A LINK?

Please tell your family and friends about this project. Anyone in the world can pledge. We have had people support us from all around the world. Could you email people this link to our Kickstarter:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dos-polacas/indigenous-knowledge-and-the-box-of-treasures

#2 WOULD POST A PHOTO TO FACEBOOK?

Photography is the book’s visual face. The stunning photography pulls people into this project. Copy and paste this image below and send it anywhere you want! We love this image so much that we plan on it being the cover page of the book.



#3 WOULD YOU CALL ON FRIENDS AND FAMILY TO JOIN YOU IN SUPPORTING THIS PROJECT?

When something comes from our hearts, the people closest to us would like to hear about it. And we would be honored.

#4 DO YOU KNOW A LITTLE BIT BUT NOT EVERYTHING ABOUT OUR PROJECT? OR ABOUT DOS POLACAS? OR ABOUT KICKSTARTER?

Send friends and family to this page on our website: http://www.dos-polacas.com/in-their-hands.html and then they will know everything!
If they don’t quite understand what Kickstarter is all about, send them to this page on our website: http://www.dos-polacas.com/what-is-kickstarter.html. It explains how Kickstarter works, what are Backer Rewards, when your credit card gets charged, etc.

HELP US PADDLE THIS CANOE TO OUR GOAL!

It is only with your generosity and support that we have gotten this far.

It is only with finding more supporters like YOU that we will finish this great project, continue building bridges between cultures, deepen the relationship between peoples and work toward a better planet.

Thank you for your friendship, for your generosity and for your heart.

Sharon and Pamela
