    Hello World!
    I’m writing to ask for your help and tell you about my project, The Hello World Program. We use puppets and animation to teach computer science, programming, and web development to kids-of-all-ages. We are raising funds on Indiegogo to produce 10 videos and an e-book. Here's our campaign video:

    We're not looking to get fat and rich. We make all of our videos and tutorials available for free. And we use free and open source software to produce our media. Here's one of my personal favorites:



    We've invested thousands of hours and dollars in this project. Now we're broke. I'm reaching out to you because this is really the end. We're in a position where we can't continue without financial support. If we don't hit our modest goal we have no choice but to leave the project unfinished. And we're so close!

    Maybe computer science isn't your thing. But what about puppets and media-production? We also produce tutorials ranging from puppet-making to video editing. Here's how to make a fox puppet.

    Any help is greatly appreciated. Also consider making a contribution. Every dollar counts. The future is in your hands!
