Create Change on Kickstarter
If you've been following along as I've revealed my top secret plans to change the world, you already know the fundamentals for the Create Change App. A free app that will give you inspiration and know how to repurpose items that we otherwise would throw away... into our landfills. I've spent countless hours researching EPA statistics and even hung out at the Central Kentucky Landfill: where 70% of the items can be recycled or reused. It's crazy to think that we throw so much away without ever wondering how it might affect our future generations.
Don't be fooled, our waste/consumption problem is affecting us right now. Did you know that babies are born with over 250 industrial chemicals already in their bodies? This is a direct result of environmental pollution.
The Create Change app will revolutionize the way we view our trash and instigate a movement to change the way we consume and create. While we may not be able to completely eliminate the garbage coming out of our homes, if we find creative ways to reuse materials (along with recycling) we will cut back on the amount of trash we produce while injecting color, textures, and wonder into our lives and communities. We all know that we should reduce our consumption, reuse what we have, and recycle the rest. So why is it so difficult? It doesn't have to be: Create Change makes it fun & easy. With innovative DIY tutorials accessible at your fingertips, you'll be able to find inspiration wherever trash happens.
What? Did I just say $17K? I know it sounds outrageous- but the cost of app development is. One company actually quoted me more than $50,000!
Keep in mind the tutorials featured in this app are all going to be original content. The build costs include investment in tools and materials. I've invested my time and skills to this project and have team of volunteers to help create. This budget is the bare minimum needed to launch the Create Change App. Any amount raised over the goal will be used to give the Create Change Movement a permanent website home, plan live events in YOUR town, host a launch party and possibly treat the team of volunteers to dinner and wine!
