      Brough here by Scott Mosier on Smodcast.... Good luck with the project guys! I believe that crowdfunding is the way of the future ... I raised enough to attend a conference earlier this year that I would NEVER have been able to attend otherwise!!!!

      To reiterate Dave Best's comments..koodo's to Kevin Smith and Scott Mosier for making this project known. As a father of an autistic son, and avid listener of Smodcast, I cannot wait to shake Mosier's hand and hug all the teachers at the JFK school.
