[caption id="attachment_948" align="alignright" width="300"] Earth and Mindful Mammoth join forces on Patreon.[/caption] Over the past three years, we've been highly successful with kids, parents, players, schools, fun, learning, and all the friendly sorts of good stuff that we've been working towards. We've been less successful with our business model, and so - this week - we're launching an new kind of crowdfunding campaign using Patreon. Patreon is essentially a subscription-based form of crowdfunding, where patrons offer support to organizations and projects by donating some number of dollars per month. We looked at a number of crowdfunding options, and Patreon seemed like the best fit to our style of work. While we aim for a big product release every year or two, most of our work is an ongoing process with a very unpredictable schedule. Some months we focus on teaching and outreach, while in other months, we focus on development. Patreon is a good fit to this style of work as it allows us to be flexible - to adapt to the needs of teachers, schools, and development timetables. Please support us on Patreon, and then share this link with your friends: https://www.patreon.com/mindfulmammoth. By becoming a patron and supporting us with a monthly contribution, you can join our quest and help to create a better world through play.
