Hello! Yes! I have feedback from 7 people (who all loved your website). I also have a few pictures. Would you like me to send you the feedback in an email? It's probably the easiest! You can contact me at jamie.whittaker@live.ca

Hi Paul,
Thank you! I'm glad you were able to look at Sarah's work. She is a spectacular death midwife and an inspiring teacher. She has created a thriving community here in Calgary and we are all so grateful to her. I agree that it makes most sense to continue our dialogue after the Refinement phase wraps up.  I'm happy to hear that you'll continue on with the HDCR initiatives no matter what happens in this challenge. My email is info@crowsinarow.com and I greatly look forward to continuing the conversation! Thank you!

Hello! I think the website is excellent as it is in its draft state and it will work well to get feedback on. Good luck on your MA thesis- wow what a busy week for you! I would love to be added as a team member! I will start gathering feedback tomorrow (I'm looking forward to it) and we'll catch up after your big deadline. :)
