      Why are there no more Rebel Girls Tattoo Packs for the new book - my daughter loved the first ones and we have just run out as she had one on her arm for about a month! Please print some more with different famous women!

      @DC Cahalane - Hello! I am seeing copies/confirmations of all the messages on our end (sent to a account). If these messages are not in your spam folder, we may have the wrong email address on file for you. Please check your Kickstarter inbox, today. I just posted the September 11th message there.

      @DC - Hi, there! Our customer service team sent you updates via Kickstarter and email. Your survey is incomplete. This is the only way for us to get your shipping information. Please reply to the email you received. We're sending you another today, just in case :)

      @Creator - What time is your second campaign tomorrow going to be online?

    8. Jodez4 on

      Nevermind, I found them.

    9. Jodez4 on

      I too have received nothing, double checked to make sure I filled out my survey properly. It didn't even require postage...

      Was so thrilled to find the book in my local bookstore today! I originally kickstarted to get 2 copies and gave them both away :(. Finally I could replace the copy for my son!

      @Marci Thanks for your feedback! You're 100% right, and we changed the Thunderclap message to "get it for the Holidays!"

    12. Angela Bosch on

      Does anyone know what time the "secret" will go live?

    13. Marci Hopkins on

      I love the thunderclap idea, but I wish you'd considered that there are other reasons to buy the book besides Christmas presents and there are other girls who will read this book who are not Christians. I couldn't find a way to edit the Christmas out of the message, so I added a few of my own in the personalization section.

      Just noticed that I still haven't received anything for my rather large backing. No emails about PDF's. No colouring book, no hardcover. What's going on?

    20. Sakura Tanida Kawano on

      Hi I haven't received my PDF book either. And didn't find the email in my inbox. Where can I find my digital reward?

      Hey All, I recovered my backerkit survey and the Digital files were there. Never got a notification though!

      If you search your email for "Response Needed -- Get your reward for Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls" it'll pull up the survey link, click on it, fill it in with your kickstarter email to "recover a survey link". It emails you a new link, click on it and Voila!

      Hi. I haven't received the pdf by email .... please send it. Thanks.

    25. Rick R

      Love the book. My 6-year old hung the poster on her door, and loves the women. I am so pleased to have so many strong women to share with my powerful child.

    26. George Roche on

      Haven't received books: I haven't received any updates on the project or delivery of the books even though I ordered three. Can someone please PM me or email me to sort this out? Thanks!

    27. Mildred Kennedy-Stirling on

      I have emailed several times. I was not psyched to email in this forum because when they respond it is public and they share your email, address and phone. Not professional. This is a great project and product. I am said to have not received the homeschool kit package as promised.

      I didn't receive the original package and was told they couldn't replace and I should pick up with DHL. I was offered one book when I had ordered 5 originally but I see from the notes below that people have had their packages replaced and I'm not sure as to why the inconsistent treatment. I've chased with the post office to no avail and now am stuck where I was hoping to have 5 of these for Christmas with one that I can order - doesn't help at all. Could you please let me know next steps. I have written in but haven't heard back either. Thanks.

      Hi, I just remembered about this project; haven't received my book (+ coloring), and can't recall any message about it from post or delivery service. Guess I was in the 1,5 % then. What should I do?

    30. Charlsie Elaine Harrison on

      Hello there. I do not recall getting a survey request and have not received my book. Is this normal? I don't mind waiting, I just hope it was not lost.

    31. Laura Rosales on


      My package got lost too and Breana was super helpful! The post in Guatemala is very unreliable, and when I told them the books had never arrived they were kind enough to resend them to a new address plus some extra stickers :) (even though my original message was to place a new order).

      The books have since arrived and they look great! Can't wait to wrap them and give them out as gifts.

      Hopefully this will make you feel better if you package got lost too.

      Thanks for all your help team!!

      Hey, I am sorry compared to other questions of backers that did not received their copies yet my question sounds frivolous: is it right that the coloring book include Marie Antionette but there is not portrait of her in the book? Thank you for your amazing work, tough.

I've been eagerly waiting for them to share with my friends daughter and nieces.Reading this now it looks like should have received the package? I have had no notification at all!

      I have been waiting for my order and the USPS shipping says a label was created by they are waiting for the item. Where is my shipment?

    35. Ella Pays on

      I am so upset as I backed this project and spent quite a lot of money to buy two books for my daughter and niece. The courier company said it was delivered but it has never arrived and I keep being told that there is nothing that they can do to help me. Almost at the point of opening a dispute. So sad that it has come to this.
      If you are in a similar position to me, I hope you have a better outcome.

    36. Timbuktu Labs 2-time creator on

      @Amanda you can access the lesson plan from your Backerkit profile:

      @Nicole we plan on launching the prints soon! Stay tuned!

      @Sarah We're glad you're enojoying the book! Sorry you had to pay extra to get the book, unfortunately, we can't accept claims for it anymore because more than 3 months have passed and DHL can't process such old claims. We're really sorry about that.

      I got this book for my 2.5 year old and it's great. We also used the posters to decorate her new "big girl" room - she loves looking at all of the illustrations of the women on the poster and then finding her story in the book.
      My only issue was that I was required to pay shipping and handling ($15.23) at the post office when I picked up package. I don't think I should have had to pay this, considering that I already paid shipping and handling through Kickstarter. I would appreciate a refund of the $15.23 CAD.
