We are looking at creating a digital app that we can use in addition to our Facebook group for deeper connection and more organized content.
What it will include:
• Individual communities, one for each unit that is created (so that you can share resources and be part of a collective group all working on the same thing)
• Notifications right on your phone so you don't miss important news, sales, lives, or updates.
• A live section where you can view live videos and we can have our Gather 'Round moms go live as well within the app!
• Friend/private chat/group chat capability within the app (connect with people in your region or people that you feel connected to)
• Event calendar
• Available for iOS and Android
• The option to create exclusive free downloads, purchases, content and know that you are getting a notification every singe time.
Why we are gathering support:
• The app costs about $12,000 up front so we are looking for support to get started.
What's in it for you?
• The main thing is that if I have 1,000 purchase, I can then offer the app for free for everyone else, which means that you get to be a part of something and help other families get the content and communities for free.
• But I want to give back too, so I will also be offering a free download of our Human Body add-on: God Doesn't Make Mistakes (Title subject to change). Not sure the value of this, it will be at least the value of what you are paying if not more. This is a book compiled of stories of Gather 'Round kids with all sorts of conditions, pictures, quick facts, etc. to help teach our children that "normal" can look very different and to instil empathy and understanding even at a young age. It is going to be VERY special!
When will it be done?
• They tell me it will be 4-6 weeks so I want to start sooner rather than later but I have decided I am going to wait until I get full support for it in order to not cause financial strain on our other projects, we have SO much going on right now. So in essence, this answer is kind of up to you!
How can you help?
You can purchase as many increments as you want. We need 1,000 increments of $12 to make it possible. Select your quantity and checkout!
