Jimmy's Gone Green and Wants to Encourage Young School Children to Help Him Spread the Word

The Jimmy's Gone Green foundation has launched the 'Jimmy: Inspiring Kids to Conserve Energy and Water' project on Indiegogo. The team behind this campaign is raising the funds needed to bring the Jimmy's Gone Green Conservation Project to school children in Kindergarten through 3rd-grade.

The Jimmy’s Gone Green Foundation, a nonprofit organization that promotes environmental awareness and conservation, has launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.  This campaign has a funding goal of $3000, which needs to be raised in order to bring the foundation’s “Jimmy’s Gone Green” education program to Elementary schools. The program will focus on children ages 4 - 8, in the hopes of having an overflow effect on the community. The team states, “Jimmy inspires families to conserve energy and water, vital resources that our generation and generations before ours took for granted. The goal of the program is to empower children and their families to take simple, measurable actions to help protect the environment.” This program basically uses the powerful tool of “peer influence” in a positive manner. Jimmy is a kid himself, so the kids will relate to him. They will then take what they learn home to their families.

The teaching material includes an age-level book filled with fun rhymes and colorful illustrations where Jimmy teaches kids what it means to “be green”, along with a classroom guide for teachers.  The book will include ten simple steps the children can take to help protect the environment, from turning off the water when they brush their teeth to recycling. The idea was inspired by California’s drought problem, which is so severe that the governor declared it a state of emergency. With a solid focus in mind, the team set out to establish an inspiring program that focused on the water shortage as well as other environmental issues, and “is designed to help children and their families adopt habits that have a positive impact on the environment.”

The team at Jimmy’s Gone Green have been hard at work with all of the essential groundwork for their conservation program. They are now ready to begin the process of taking it to the classroom which is why they launched their crowdfunding campaign and hired a team of crowdfunding specialists to help them spread the word. Their goal is to get the program into at least 20 Kindergarten to 3rd grade classrooms by April 2016. As an added bonus with this campaign, the team is offering several perks. These perks, which serve as funding incentives, reward a supporter for their contribution with various merchandise items, while enabling them to follow the campaign and receive all of the updates. A supporter can download the “Jimmy’s Gone Green Conservation Song”, pre-order the book, get a full Jimmy’s Gone Green set complete with book, chart and stickers, and even adopt a classroom.  Full details can be found on their Indiegogo campaign page.
