The Look Make Show, a Kids Show for Art & Inspiration!

We’re in full production mode for the first season of our new TV series and we need *you* to bring the show to life by donating to our Kickstarter campaign through May 14.

The Look Make Show is more than just entertainment. Best friends Rod and Coney are on a mission to make us laugh, teach us about art, and unite children's reality with their imagination so they can create the world they want to live in.

Contribute to our Kickstarter and become an integral part of the series by having your child's name in the credits ($100), voicing a character ($1,000), or simply sporting a Look Make Show hat around town ($75).

Check it out: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cmany/the-look-make-show-a-kids-show-for-art-and-inspiration

Help Rod and Coney on their journey to make a television show with friends to learn about art and face life’s challenges together.

Have you taken the opportunity yet? Poor Norman will ONLY be availble until September 10th! This is not a donation, but a pre-sale event to send this cute story to print. If it does not hit the goal, no money is exchanged; which makes it a safe purchase. Teach children kindness and diversity while capturing their attention with beautiful illustrations to grow a love for the ocean and desire for conservation. Plus! Contracts are in the work so that 25% of the profits go to The Surfrider Foundation SD to not only inspire children, but make an impact now. Written by Nikki Pride, and illustrated by Jen Hodge of The Grumpy Unicorn. Come join Poor Norman’s pre-sale event! Pacific Coast Mermaids would love to chat with you if you want to say hello, ask questions, or even get involved. #poornorman #pacificcoastmermaids #mermaids #narwhals #childrensbook #helping #makingfriends #recycle #trash #ocean #sea #diversity #savetheplanet #savethemermaids #magical #unicorn #thegrumpyunicorn #author #illustrator #crowdfunding #kickstarter #shorebuddies #nonprofit #notforprofit #donatetocharity #thesurfriderfoundationsd
