About this project

This Perfect Penmanship Kickstarter campaign is an educational movement to enlighten people about the benefits for cognitive function for all those that practice consistent, legible cursive penmanship.  

See Our Method Vs. The Palmer Method, A Method That Sold 1 Million Copies In 1912

We have created the Perfect Penmanship website with a Discover section that draws from the best, modern, clinical studies proving that those that practice doing longhand in cursive handwriting for the act of note-taking far outperform those that use the methods of printing and typing at their tablet, laptop or computer terminal.

Unlike The Palmer Method, We Now Have Brain Science That Conclusively Proves The Importance of Penmanship For Brain Development

Clinical, scientific evidence proves that the act of flowing, consistent cursive penmanship activates neural fields in certain parts of the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain that other writing methods fail to engage. 

Cursive Handwriting Opens The Right Side Of The Brain For Creativity, Calmness, and Higher Level Thinking

See a video of ours proving that penmanship activates the right hemisphere of the brain using iFocusBand technology, a technology used by American author, Depak Chopra.

"Deepak announces the use of the FocusBand for sport, yoga and meditation. A 'great tool for anxiety relief'" - http://www.ifocusband.com

Our profound discovery shows that penmanship promotes relaxation, mindfulness of the moment, and calmness, proving that cursive handwriting is a great remedy for anxiety and stress.  We believe Mr. Chopra is not even aware of these discoveries!  Please consider donating to help us spread the word.

It is our intention to raise funds through this Kickstarter, crowd-funding campaign to advertise the Perfect Penmanship system, to conduct workshops in the Southern California region and beyond, and to begin a movement to establish penmanship as a necessity in the U.S. school system for all 50 states in the nation.  Currently, there are 14 states that mandate cursive penmanship in elementary school.  There are 36 states that still need to make the transition to this enlightened endeavor. 

Please be generous with your contribution to bring this enlightened communication method back to its rightful place in American culture.

Sincerely,

Michael J. Lavery and Robert R. Lane

Risks and challenges

There are no serious risks that we foresee in being able to finish the project for we have already established our website presence as well as the downloadable products to help in our quest to bring penmanship back to all 50 states.
For the larger products in excess of a hundred dollar contribution, we already have the products in our inventory. Making fulfillment of these items will present no obstacle for us for we have our packaging a shipping arrangements already established.

In regards to our goal of bringing penmanship back to its rightful place in American culture through the letter-writing campaign to state legislators and other social media campaigns, we believe that this is a long-term commitment in which we will create a groundswell of support. We foresee the momentum of states electing to mandate penmanship as part of the curriculum for elementary school children. Furthermore, we believe that through our cursive penmanship awareness workshops, we can gain the support of college-level practitioners and beyond.
