ADD-ONS - a simple way to get more!
Choose the Add-ons you want. Do the math. Adjust the dollar amount of your pledge accordingly - adding on the total cost of your Add-Ons. You don’t have to choose a different Reward. Yes, you can choose ALL of them if you’d like!
When the campaign ends you will get a survey asking if you added-on and if so, which add-ons you chose.
You will not be charged until after the campaign ends THIS WEDNESDAY NIGHT 6pm PST.

The PROBLEM with Kids' TV
Children's TV: Light on education, heavy on advertising. Typically, selling trumps teaching.
- FACT - Only 1 in 8 kid's educational programs meet high quality standards (1)
- FACT - Only 1 in 4 were classified as minimally educational (2)
- FACT - Advertisers spend $12 billion a year on ads targeting children (3)
TreeSchoolers - Too Educational for TV?
TV executives have told us that Rachel & the TreeSchoolers is just too educational for television. We are proud of that!
We will not dumb down our programs.

4 Signs that Educational TV is Totally Dead
(Yep, you're not the first one confused about add-ons. Here's some help!)
Risks and challenges
We've been in production for close to 12 years, creating and delivering media. We have realistic timeframes built into our production schedule and have accounted for manufacturing delays, proofing, subtitling etc. Any delays would be minimal, a matter of weeks, not months. We are hard at work as you read this! ~Rachel ColemanLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
Yes, we will!
Sadly, we cannot make changes to Rewards once they already have Backers. (I added International shipping to some Rewards yesterday because they were not yet backed)
If the Reward you want (at the $175 or less) does not show "Shipping Outside The US" Here's what you do - Simply add $16 to your Reward for International Shipping. I wish I could charge $16 and ship myself to you, but I can't. It would take WAY more stamps than that:)
You have two options:
1. If you would like the first verse sung to one name and the second verse to another name, just add $35 to your reward. In the survey tell us that you pledged an additional $35 for a second name in one song.
2. If you would like each child to have their own version of the song, just add $50 to your reward. In the survey tell us that you pledged an additional $50 for a second song and be sure to give us both names.
It's either that or choose your favorite child;)
Our Kickstarter video is available with captions on youtube!
Our episodes are always delivered with subtitles/captions. If you chose digital delivery and need subtitled/captions, please let us know that in your survey when the campaign ends.
Did you choose a Reward listed at over $100? Good News! When we funded we upgraded ALL of the Rewards over $100!
Applies to Skype Reward and above:
In the description it lists everything that you will receive and it likely says, "Includes everything in the TREESCHOOLER DELUXE Reward" - just know that you are NOW UPGRADED to receiving the SUPER-FAN REWARD instead.
Don't worry, the SUPER-FAN Reward still includes everything in the TREESCHOOLER DELUXE Reward and more!
We can't change the description once a Reward has been chosen by a Backer
There are not any events that are open to the public connected to the Pizza Parties and Coffee Talk dates.
Yes, those Rewards go fast!
The good news is we are opening up more spots when we come within reach of our $150,000 Stretch Goal. We'll open some again when we reach each $50,000 Stretch Goal after that. The best thing to do now is share this project with 5 friends and ask them to become Backers too. We will reach those Stretch Goals quickly if we reach more people who believe in what we are doing.
When you reached $100,000 you unlocked Episode 4! When you reached $150,000 you unlocked Episode 5! All Backers at Reward Tiers of $25 and above, will get a free digital download of Episode 4 & Episode 5 when they are completed.
If you would like us to ship the DVD/CD combos to you, please Adjust/Manage your pledge and add $20 for each copy of Episode 4 and add $20 for each copy of Episode 5 that you would like sent to you. Includes shipping within the US. International? Add-on $28 per DVD/CD combo includes International shipping) When the campaign ends on Wednesday, August 14th at 7pm MDT you will receive a survey shortly after asking you IF you added-on, how much you added and what the add-on was for. Thanks!
