This Kickstarter campaign will help us to produce a Wuf Shanti pilot TV program. It will be 22 minutes to a half-hour long, complete with yoga lessons, mindful mantras, and wonderful music. Think like Barney or Elmo for yoga, and you will have the idea. The goal is to get the program on the air at a station such as PBS or NickJr and in-house TV stations at children's hospitals across the globe and expose as many children as possible in the hope that we can help make our communities and our planet better while making kids smile. 

If children learn early how to live mindfully and deal with problems in a productive manner, then we will hopefully attain a more peaceful world where kindness abounds, and have fewer incidents of grown-ups shooting up schools and movie theaters. Children need to learn when they are young that we are all one, love wins, and spreading kindness and positivityis the way to a future filled with love and light for all of us. They should also learn the influence and importance of positive thinking on health and success in life. Proper breathing, stretching, meditating, and even thinking well can help children stay healthy and happy.

We have learned that producing a TV show requires a lot of hands on deck, a lot of money, a lot of patience, and a lot of support from our friends. We are asking for $58,000.00, which is actually very conservative, and we will do our best with things like using natural lighting while outdoors to the extent possible. With this money, we will need to hire script writers, producer and production team, directors, camera men and videographers, editors, musicians, actors, yoga instructors, as well as the find the warehouse, soundstage, and all the equipment, an agent, and publicist to help shop it around and get the word out. Because we know that projects like this may run over, we have a STRETCH GOAL as well, which is $80,000.00.

Our goal is to reach our target within 1.5 months, and then begin filming in August or September. We do hope that this character will become a beacon for children around the world to live in light. Maybe it will turn into a world tour one day, and you can come see our live show. We are manifesting greatness! :)

Risks and challenges

This project doesn't require any pre-approval or premarket review; however, like any project, there is a risk, and that is that it may end up costing more to complete and/or TV stations may not want to put it on the air. We hope that is not the case, and we do not think it will be, but we are prepared to tackle that if we have to by pounding the pavement, putting it on youtube, generating groundswell support, and never giving up because we wholeheartedly believe in this mission and the goodness Wuf Shanti achieve in this world.
