URGENT! Make A Mircacle Happen for the Ancient Inca Indians

URGENT.  PLEASE READ AND SHARE WITH ALL YOU KNOW.  TIME IS RUNNING OUT!

We don’t exactly know why the Inca Indians of Peru left their incredible hidden city of Machu Picchu in the Andes Mountains of Peru, but less than 24 hours now exist to help bring them back to life through our first of its kind-interactive book for the iPad we endeavor to design, shoot, write and build through a Kickstarter.com campaign you can still make a pledge to and support.  With your pledge, we stand a chance of creating a miracle–raising almost $53,000 online in less than 24 hours to support and incredible project that will help bring a Wonder of the Worldto children of all ages around the globe.

Convert Your Works to the Interactive Book for the iPad

We need these funds to help send a crew to Peru to do hi-res, digital photography of the site that will be used to visually tell the story of what happened to this lost civilization in South America that was swallowed up into the Peruvian jungle until  it was “rediscovered” by American Archaeologist Hiram Bingham in 1911–and he himself raised funds in 1912 to go back and bring evidence of what it was like to share the world through black and white photos and early descriptions.

With the book we are building with the iPad, there will be 3-D animations to use and get a better understanding of this historic site that almost 1 million people visit each year from around the world.  We will have HD video, an incredible 3-D animated tour so if you never get to go, through our book you will feel like you’ve been there.  There will be incredible, breath-taking photography of the site and a historic account of the important aspects of Machu Picchu that you cannot get from just reading a book.

MAKE A PLEDGE

All you have to do is go right now to the Kickstarter.com site and make a pledge.  If we do not reach the goal by Tuesday 9 a.m. CDT, we will not receive a penny of funding and you will be charged NOTHING.

THEN ENCOURAGE EVERYONE YOU KNOW

We need your help to encourage everyone you know to also make a miracle happen.  The Inca deserve to have their story shared and preserved through the ages with this incredible technological development and it is not going to happen without your help and those of your social and personal networks.

Please, write your friends an email and send them this link and let them know you’re supporting this project and need your help to make this miracle happen.

Please.  Time is running out.  Save the story of the Inca and support our effort.  You will get some great rewards for doing so, and know through the course of time you helped a people from long, long ago.

Day 1 of Kickstarter.com Campaign–We Can’t Do It Without YOU!

WHAT IS OUR CAMPAIGN ALL ABOUT?

It’s simple.  We’re asking hundreds of our soon-to-be-new-best-friends to back our effort to raise enough funds to send a production crew to Peru in June or July, based on when we can get all the permits, reservations and ticketing taken care of, and go to Machu Picchu, one of the new Seven Wonders of the World, and document the site for the Interactive Book for the iPad that we’re building.

WHAT IS AN INTERACTIVE BOOK FOR THE IPAD?

Just think of a paperback and throw that thought away.

Think of an e-Pub document for the Nook or Kindle and then think of the old Mac commercials where PC is explaining to Mac about his summer vacation with an Excel spreadsheet.

Then think of holding an iPad in your hands and being able to wander around visually with 3-D animations, graphics, embedded videos of scholars and scientists explaining about what used to happen at Machu Picchu, and think of clicking on a button and being able to see a 360° rendering of the site.

The choice is clear, hi-res and in HD and on the new iPad with the incredible retina advancements, well, it’s going to be the next best thing to actually being there.

WHO FOUND MACHU PICCHU?  WAS IT REALLY HIRAM BINGHAM?

Well, he did climb the mountainous area one day in 1911 and “re-discover” it.  There are accounts of others having been there and maybe even some graffiti on a couple of the walls when he got there.  But it is clear that exactly 100 years ago right now, Hiram Bingham was out raising funds, just like we are doing, to go back so he could gather enough information to properly share with the world about Machu Picchu.

We’ll share more facts about the project and Machu Picchu each of the remaining 32 days of our campaign.

In the meantime, we ask that you please support our efforts and encourage your friends and family to do the same.  This can be one of the greatest creative learning projects ever put together and you have a front-row seat and chance to be a part of it, let alone to have your name in the book if you give $25 or more toward our goal!
