GIVE YOUR KID A STICK FOR CHRISTMAS.

project wild thing

Or maybe a rock.

Whether in our heart of hearts or the deepest darkest Peru of our subconscious we all know that the omnipresent ambush of technology is not doing our kids any favors.  Sure they can Tweet at 6 and Vine at 9 and do god knows what at 12 but the more important question is what are are they not doing… getting dirty? Mucking around?  Taking direction from no one and nobody while spontaneously connecting with the planet on which they live?

This Christmas take a cue from Project Wild Thing created by David Bond, self-appointed Marketing Director for Nature. Unplug  your kids and throw throw them out the door.  You’ll be glad you did.  And so will they.

Check out at the Kickstarter video (below) to get the gist though happily their documentary was fully funded on December 6.  Now all we have to do is get our lazy butts in front of the film.
