      Hi Gayle - Will we ever be receiving the books? It sounded as if you were going to get that done but it has been months and months (2 years actually). Any updates? Thanks Mitch Ratner

      Hi Guys - I know this is way late but did you guys ever send out the rewards? I never did receive the reward. Not a big deal but figure I would let you know. Mitch Ratner

      No swag! No communication. I've offered to help Gail pay for the rewards but never heard back from her. I've done several projects and I'm ok with folks running out of money. Shit happens. But not communicating, saying I'm sorry, explaining what happened--no excuse.
      Gail, grow a pair and just explain what happened. We made ourselves vulnerable; now it's your turn. You're in the business of telling other people's stories--let's hear yours.

      I am assuming there won't be any backer rewards. It looks like Gayle took the money and ran.

      Hi is there an update? Have rewards been sent out?
      I've backed 3 projects on kickstarter so far and have never received any rewards :(
      Nevertheless the movie sounds great, and I hope it reaches a wide audience.

      Gayle, how about a status update?
      Anyone else know the status?

      This is great news. Thank you for the opportunity to be a "backer"! Best wishes as this work continues. One CAN make a dollar, one person, one kindness, etc. at a time.

      Hi Gayle - What a wonderful movie. I think that those with the passion, like yourself, to get the word out about the effectiveness of microfinance are truly making a positive difference to those in need. Thanks for the time and effort that you have provided.

      Congratulations on reaching and passing your goal!

      Hi Gayle, I'm a big fan of Professor Yunus', and I absolutely loved the film. I am praying it gets the funding it needs by tomorrow. I learned about the kickstarter project on the Friends of Bob Harris message board on :)

      If just one in three microenterprises hired a single employee, the US would be at full employment! That's a great reason to support this film.

      This may have more direct impact on the current poverty issues in the US than anything else you can do today.
