About

Howdy folks!

Thanks for taking a look at our project, read on for a summary or feel free to skip this bit and go right to the giving-us-some-money part.  Either way, let's be friends!

The Why

Kids have questions.  Lots of questions.  Recently a lot food questions have been coming from the 3 to 5 year olds that we know.  They've realized that we eat animals and they're trying to make sense of that fact. 

They already like animals, they like them a lot - they're cute, cuddly and fun, but that's not the end of it as we know.   What's next?  They're also delicious!

Zoe age 4 wants to know,  "What animal are we eating right now?  What animals can we eat?  Do animals like to be eaten?  We're eating just the mean ones right?"

David, age 3, asks "Do we eat boy chickens", "What is this" as he holds up a piece of bacon.

The Animals on My Plate is made for them, the cute, curious and hungry children among us who need all the protein they can get so they can grow up and take care of us when we're old.

The How

We're raising these initial funds to get the first printing done.  

We will be partnering with Print Ninja to help us with the printing and logistics.

 

We'd like to get some initial feedback from our backers to see if we need to make any adjustments.  We plan on incorporating the feedback during the campaign and then getting the books on order.

So far feedback has been great. Everyone who has seen the material has either been appalled or loved it which confirms that we are on the right track.

 

Risks and challenges

Risks
We plan on overcoming all challenges and risks with blind optimism and bravado. If that doesn't work we're going to eat delicious animals until the solutions present themselves. (And yes, we'll only eat the mean ones)

Really though, we're taking an iterative approach. This first print batch is small, the funding target is reasonable and we're going to use this experience to learn how to do this well.
