Are you part of the pack?

Are you a CritterKin Kickstarter?  Are you in the pack? Visit to find out how to join the pack!  CritterKin Kickstarter Campaign… it starts April 22!

Last week, Jena Ball and Marty Keltz joined me PAWsitive Radio- All Things Pets!

This radio show was inspired by our precious dog Toby, a dog who lived life big, made a difference, and taught us a lot about life and being a better person.

Animals connect people... you can be sure that we met Toby's two friends families (especially when he returned to us with a toy he "borrowed" from his friends).  Pets stories are conversation starters. Animals create a safe place for conversation, and are incredible teachers about empathy, kindness and unconditional love.

CritterKin pack member, Jena Ball is a writer, illustrator and the creative director at Startled Cat, and is the artist/storyteller responsible for the CritterKin™ concept. Her work focuses on using new media to produce compelling narratives while building strong communities focused on innovation, creativity and collaboration.  An Emmy Award winning producer and pack member, Marty Keltz was the co-founder and president of Scholastic Productions, Inc. and a Senior Vice President in charge of New Media. He led the teams that created The Magic School Bus, The Baby-Sitters Club feature films, home videos for Clifford The Big Red Dog, and more than 300 hours of television programming. As a media consultant and producer, he has worked with the Discovery Channel and the Alliance Atlantis Lifetime Channel for a series with True Entertainment on Doctors Without Borders.

April 22 CritterKin launches the Kickstarter campaign.  And there is room in the pack for you to join.  :)

The mission of the CritterKin™ project is to help children learn the invaluable life lessons that pets can teach. These include respect for all life, an understanding of and appreciation for difference and diversity, empathy, responsibility, and an awareness of our role as the species that has the greatest impact on the planet. 

CritterKin™ is a suite of products including mobile apps, e-books, online games, print media, and film designed to educate kids (and their families) about responsible pet care through fun interactive activities.

 The Kickstarter campaign fundraiser to finish the app development will launch April 22.  How can you be involved?

Help spread the word.  Tweet about it using the #critterkin hashtag.  Share the CritterKin updates and news on social media, create your own "I'm a CritterKin Kickstarter" video and share with CritterKin and visit the Kickstarter Campaign page on April 22.
