About this project

Update: Here's a video of the funny responses from kids about Bob's adventures! 

This story was created because there is a growing epidemic of childhood obesity and diabetes worldwide and this trend is on the rise!

This story aims to promote healthy eating and lifestyle through creative storytelling and if you support this book you can help to spread this cause!

Bob and his time travel adventures
Bob and his time travel adventures

Meet Bob. He is a young boy who has the ability to time travel. And through his time travel adventures, he sees the direct consequences of his eating habits whether good or bad.

This story idea was first pitched at Philly Startup Weekend 2013 and was well received winning 2nd place among the pitches. 

Since then, we have been steadily working on bringing Bob's story to life. Our team consists of myself, Selena, the author and Tony, a freelance graphic designer, the illustrator of Bob's story.

Currently, we have a draft of Bob's book that we have read to a few 2nd grade classrooms receiving very positive feedback from the kids themselves. 

We need your help in bringing this story to life, so please support our campaign if you support our cause and you will receive the rewards listed. All clay work related rewards will be handmade by Claynextion

If our campaign is successful we will have the funds to print and publish our book for kids all over to enjoy as well as continue spreading Bob's story by working on his second time travel adventure in time for National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month in September!

Risks and challenges

As first time publishers, one potential risk maybe the quality of the book print may not match the expectations we intended and may have to be reprinted. However, majority of the quotes obtained from various printing company's have included a physical proof and can resolve this issue.
