Grab your Teddy Bear and your passport -- Through My Eyes is hitting the road again, and this time, it's penguins!
Following on our success of our China series as the centerpiece of WGBH's Kids site, we've been offered a great opportunity. Our friends at Hit and Run History, headed down to the tip of South America this spring, have offered us cabins for a cruise around Cape Horn with Cruceros Australis.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for our girls to share the wonders of glaciers and penguins with classrooms across the country. So many topics can be explored: from marine life to environmental science to culture and maritime history. Just imagine the sorts of adventures Ava and Sofie can share with children in schoolrooms back home, meeting penguins and navigating ice fields.
In exchange for the cruise, our part of the bargain is to raise the money for the airfare for us all. That's a fair trade and an excellent way to continue our series. Plus, with HRH's professional camera crew, the quality will be even better.
But we need to raise this money quickly before this offer -- and the ship -- sails. Please make your pledge to support a public media series that excites and empowers children, parents and teachers.
Be a part of something great and help us make this series happen!
