Empower Learning with U Cre-8 Comics
U Cre-8 Comics is bringing innovative programming and pop cultural engagement to the classroom for 2000 students in Central Ohio.
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Sun, March 10 2019 1:33 PM UTC +00:00.
Hi! I'm Victor Dandridge -- The Hardest Working Man in Comics! LONG before all that though, I was just a kid who DIDN'T like to read...scratch that -- I HATED to read. That all changed however, the day they announced "Superman was going to die!" Luckily, my parents were fully supportive in encouraging my reading by ANY means, and since then, I've become an avid reader, now earning my living as a self-publishing comic book creator.
But, I want to give back and inspire others to explore comics -- particularly in the classroom. To do so, I started U Cre-8 Comics, a sister brand to my publishing imprint. As a successful graduate of Columbus City Schools, I especially want to start affecting students in my own back yard, and that's why I've come to Kickstart to enlist your aid in helping me bring my unique programming to up to ten (10) schools in CCS district.
How we'll use the money:
The funds we receive will provide designated schools with a U Cre-8 Comics Presents: Character Crafter presentation, one of our fan-favorite programming content options. The funds will cover the cost of printing, delivery and distribution of our original Character Crafter Workbooks for up to 200 students at each school (grades 3+).
At a cost of only $1.25 per student, our per site goal of $250, aims to maximize inclusion OVER profitability! (As an on-going business, U Cre-8 Comics offers content programming at an hourly rate of $4-8 per student. Funding this campaign would give those same benefits at nearly a 70% discount. Check www.ucre8comics.com for more information on regular programming rates.)
With your support, we can EMPOWER LEARNING for up to two-thousand (2000) students in Central Ohio, by bridging the gap between comics and classroom fundamentals, through fun and engaging content! I hope I can count on you to help make this campaign a success and appreciate your time and consideration!
One down...NINE MORE TO GO!
We did it! With ALL your generous pledges, likes, and shares, we hit our goal of $250 in just a matter of hours! But one school was NEVER enough -- we've a MUCH bigger picture in our hearts and minds. Right now, we have incredible momentum and we can use that to affect SO MANY more students -- so let's make that our new benchmark! #TheBigPicture #Empower2K #KeepCre8ing
