Love everything about this - great idea and can't wait to see the final book. Haikus are such a great form of expression and creativity. Kerryn

Thank you for this hopeful initiative. I’d be really happy to receive my copy of the book electronically, which would be more environmentally friendly and would maximise the donation. Best wishes to you all.

Watched video Tedx and felt the need to buy the book. Well done David, very inspirational. I work in the health care system and will definitely use your story to support people to turn their lives around.

This is a superb concept that is also contributing to two great causes. What is not to like here? Congratulations to all involved.
