I just backed the Kickstarter Refugee campaign..join their effort if you can... we'll upgrade your rewards here!
You've probably seen the Kickstarter response to the Syrian refugee project. I'm thrilled as Kickstarter doesn't normally do charitable work. I'm completely on board and just supported their effort this morning. The link is:
If you can, please join in. If you back that campaign, let me know and I'll upgrade your rewards here! Seriously!
I truly believe that for the past five weeks or so we've helped to open eyes to what is achievable. I'm involved in several conversations with peace building organizations to implement Kid Impact into their education programs, the US Institute of Peace, ambassadors and international NPOs have all praised the project. Hopefully we helped people connect the dots.
Watching the success of the UN and Kickstarter effort satisfies two of the major goals of this project. Those goals were to raise awareness to serious issues and create out-of-the-box creative solutions as peace actions. If Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, Image, etc. won't create solutions...someone has to do it.
Kickstarter won't let creators use pledges for charitable giving, if I could I would. I've tried in the past :) But it's cool, because they did it better than I ever could have. So, now it's all about the our other goals, giving you a fantastic story and sharing that experience with you.
