Kyle Dine & Friends - Food Allergy Awareness Video

CA$ 30,020

330


Kyle Dine is a trusted allergy educator who has created engaging presentations for children about allergy awareness. He has produced two professional CDs and worked for the past 6 years with Anaphylaxis Canada. He has performed for over 500 schools across the continent. His songs empower children with food allergies, and encourage those without to learn how they can help keep their friends with allergies safe. He is passionate on reaching more children with this potentially life-saving message and wants your help to create a video that schools can easily access and educate with.

Learn more about Kyle Dine on Facebook, Twitter or www.kyledine.com. More info about the video at www.foodallergyvideo.com

 Education. Fun. Engagement.

Kyle Dine & Friends will focus on the key age-appropriate messages that children need to hear to develop a sense of understanding, inclusion and empathy for those affected by serious allergies, celiac disease or other intolerances. 
       
 
Knowledge. Empowerment. Inclusion.
The videos will contain segments that cover important educational messages while delivering content in a fun and engaging way through music, puppets, and games. Key messages such as not sharing food, washing hands and taking food allergies seriously will be introduced through stories, skits and game-style trivia while being emphasized through songs written by Kyle Dine. The DVDs will also feature a 10-minute quiz at the end to test students’ knowledge and reinforce key learning points. 
 
A hard-copy quiz and resource sheet will be included within the DVD case, in addition to mobile access.

First of it's Kind. Filling an Educational Gap.
There is increasing pressure on schools to come up with solutions to educate students about food allergies through province/state legislation as there is an increasing population of allergic students to keep safe. Schools are eager to have a video resource that will provide an easy, effective and affordable solution to educate all of their students without bringing in an outside speaker. 

The Kickstarter funding goal for $20,000 was met within the first six days of the campaign! Since we have hit the stretch goal of $30,000, the budget will include better production quality, as well various educational YouTube videos in addition to video sub-titles in both Spanish and French. 

 
 

Risks and challenges

Timely content approvals from medical professionals and other reviewers.
Video production company's ability to deliver the final project on-time.
DVD manufacturer's ability to deliver products on time.
Fulfilling orders this spring while Kyle Dine continues his school tours.

FAQ

  • I'm from Canada and am required to have my campaign in Canadian funds. If you're in the US, good news - the levels will be cheaper than what they appear! It's about $0.90 USD for every Canadian dollar. For up to date rates, and to double check an amount, visit www.xe.com

  • My conservative answer is June, 2015. However, it might be earlier depending on how long the editing process takes. I will be recording the video in March and have given myself a few months to ensure post-production is top-notch. I am also accounting for manufacturing time.
