the last 48 hours/ $664 to raise/but I still feel like the possibilities are endless

 

Dear Friends,

We are down to the last 48 hours, but I still feel like the possibilities are endless

 

DO YOU BELIEVE THAT ANY GOOD AND BRIGHT IDEA CAN SPAWN CREATIVE INVENTION?

ASK YOUR FRIENDS TO BECOME PART OF THE KICKSTARTER REVOLUTION

 

48 hours left to go

56 backers

$664 to raise

 

I love a challenge and boy has this been one, Kickstarter is definitely not a cakewalk, but man it makes me imagine that the possibilities really are endless.

 

I believe Kickstarter can be a catalyst and a tool, not only for artists, filmmakers, inventors and educators, but also for the youth of tomorrow.

Just take a look at Kickstarter and all of the people that are thinking outside the box …

Can we teach young minds to continually think outside the box in this way?

Can we set an example of how to push the systems of yesterday forward and keep their minds forever creating and inventing?

For what the world needs now are self-motivated agents of change… I like to tell my daughter, don’t think about a job you want to go get, but think about a job you want to do and create it...

Kickstarter embodies this ideal and for 3rd graders to see this example…(that a simple idea can spawn into reality with a little help from people like you..)

…Well …This is a monumental lesson in itself.

What an empowering tool for our youth, I can’t wait to go back to all 80 students and tell them about this process and how all of you supported them and believed in the project.

We are so thankful to all of you who have already pledged and hope others will be as compelled to join our community of backers and make a pledge today to The Shadow.

We are so close with just $664 left to raise in 2 days, now lets give it up for arts education in public schools!
