This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.
Please read our crowdsourcing guidelines at: https://geekalabama.com/media-kit-pr/geek-alabama-crowdsourcing-guidelines/
All Together Now! is a queer animated kid’s show. It’s about a community of people with different gender identities, body types, abilities, family structures, and cultural backgrounds. They are facing life’s challenges together by sharing their stories with each other, and building a world that celebrates inclusivity, accessibility, and kindness.
My goal with All Together Now! is to cultivate hope and joy through greater representation in children’s media, so all kids feel proud of who they are, instead of ashamed or scared about what makes them different. I will build upon community-oriented shows like Sesame Street, and artistic shows like Pee Wee’s Playhouse.
The world of All Together Now! is a culmination of many things from my own life: teaching kids how to use tools and build projects out of recycled materials, making puppet shows, playing the drums in an activist marching band, and being a queer person living in community. I am passionate about engaging young people’s creative voices and visions, so they feel empowered to step up as change-makers, transforming themselves and the world around them.
Learning how to make stuff is empowering and fun! A large part of All Together Now! is centered around sharing skills and resources to make cool projects, mostly out of recycled materials. Characters teach each other how to sew costumes, write songs, build toys, cook yummy food, and perform shows in their neighborhood. Through making, they come together, share stories, and discover the power of their imaginations.
As of June 7th, this project has raised $22,000 of their $15,000 goal. This project has 10 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $10, you will get a social media shout out. For a pledge of $50, you will get a digital download of their animated shorts.
