UPDATE: The Flower Mandalas Project’s New Backer Reward

UPDATE: Flower Mandalas Project Backer Rewards
Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.
– Carl Jung

Thank you for your contributions and support so far. Just a note to let you know that I have added a new Backer Reward. A $65 contribution gets you a signed 8″x8″ softcover copy of the book as well as a “Thanks” on the Acknowledgements page.


I have tried to make Backer Awards >= the retail value of the contributions, so in making a pledge you are not only supporting the Project, you are getting something tangible in return. Current Backer Rewards include:

$1 or more:
‘Fifty-Two Flower Mandalas’ Screensaver (retail value $10)
$10 or more:
PDF of the Book ($20), 2 greeting cards ($8), Screensaver ($10)
$25 or more:
8″x8″ Flower Mandala print ($150), PDF of the Book ($20), Screensaver ($10)
$50 or more:
12″x12″ Flower Mandala print ($225), PDF of the Book ($20), Screensaver ($10)
$65 or more:
Signed 8″x8″ softcover copy of the Book ($50-$60), Screensaver ($10)
$100 or more:
Signed 8″x8″ softcover copy of the Book ($50-$60), 12″x12″ print ($225), Screensaver ($10)


And so on. To paraphrase the NPR fund drives, “This is your chance to own a genuine David J. Bookbinder (fill in the blank)!” See the Project page for a full list of Backer Rewards.

If you are planning to contribute, please consider doing so early in the project, as “momentum” gets Kickstarter projects up on their Discover and Featured pages, where the whole Kickstarter community can become aware of them. And, you get something in return for your generosity. Kickstarter is a time-limited, all-or-nothing system. The fundraiser ends September 14, 2011. If the goal is not met by then, no money changes hands.


And, please help spread the word! The more people who know about this project, the more likely it is to get funded. Even $1 contributions bring the Project closer to meeting its goal and also help the Project get noticed at Kickstarter. Really. Even $1 helps!

Thanks again!

David J. Bookbinder, LMHC
