£5 Reward

For a pledge of £5 - £19.99 you'll get a warm fuzzy feeling and - unless you tell us you want to be anonymous - a big thank you shout out on our Facebook page!

£20 or more

£20 Reward

For a pledge of £20 - 29.99, we'll send you a copy of A Blade of Grass with your name listed in the back as an 'Olive Branch Donor.' As well as being symbols of peace and endurance, olive trees are central to the Palestinian economy, so this is a highly dignified pledge group to belong to.

£30 Reward

For a pledge of £30-39.99, we'll send you a copy of A Blade of Grass with your name in the back as a 'Kanafeh Donor'; plus another poetry book of your choice from the Options box on the 'Select Reward' page. Kanafeh (also transliterated as knafeh) is a traditional Palestinian cheese and syrup pastry, so this a very sweet pledge group to belong to!

£40 or more

£40 Reward

For a pledge of £40-49.99, we'll send you a copy of A Blade of Grass with your name listed in the back as a 'Dabke Donor'; plus your choice of two other poetry books from the Options box on the Select Reward page. * Dabke is the traditional Palestinian dance, so this is an exuberant pledge group! *(The site only lets you choose one extra book, but we'll email you to ask for the other.)

£50 or more

£50 Reward

For a pledge of £50-74.99, we'll send you a copy of A Blade of Grass with your name listed in the back as a 'Qabbeh Donor'; plus your choice of 3 other poetry books from those listed in the Options box on the Select Reward page*. The Qabbeh is the embroidered square on the front of a traditional Palestinian women's robe, so this is a colourful pledge group! *(The site only lets you choose 1 extra book but we'll email you about the others.)

£75 or more

£75 Reward

For a pledge of £75- 99.99, we'll send you two copies of A Blade of Grass, with your name listed in the back as a 'Sahja Donor'; plus your choice of three of the poetry books in the Options box of the Select Reward page.* A Sahja is a traditional Palestinian wedding song, so this is a very joyful pledge group! *(The site only lets you choose one extra book, but we'll email you to ask for the others.)

£100 or more

£100 Reward

For a donation of £100 or more, we'll send you three copies of the anthology with your name listed in the back as an 'Oud Donor'; plus your choice of three of the poetry books in the Options box of the Select Reward page.* The oud is a 12 or 13 string pear-shaped lute that produces complex overtones, so this is a truly sublime pledge group! *(The site only lets you choose one extra book, but we'll email you to ask for the others.)
