Dear Friends and Family,
It has been one week and a day since I posted "The Wheels on the Bus, A Soulful Rendition" to Facebook. I was so scared to do this. Would anyone like it? Would they be able to appreciate the mission? Kidogo Productions has been encouraged and humbled by the response. Our video has been viewed almost 2,000 times and we have begun to receive monetary contributions! Thank you!
And guess what? On this fabulous day of love, I am excited to announce that Kidogo's video has been accepted by the Indie Night Film Festival!!
See below our film poster:
We'll keep you guys updated as we get more details, but for now-- wow! I'm almost speechless! What began as a complaint about not finding what my little girl needs, has grown into a call from others to fill in the gap. Representation matters not just for my daughter, but for Black children of all hues. Not just for Black children, but for all children of color. And not just for children of color, but for White children as well.
Our mission is to create an online platform where children will be able to find lots of high- quality content, all of which honors and centers the faces, voices, talent and culture of the African Diaspora. Kidogo Productions is not just a company, but a movement.
We know that we have a long way to go, but we want you to be with us along the way. This is Kidogo's first email to you, our friends, family, contributors, and supporters. We will soon take you behind the scenes and introduce you to the fabulous talent behind our quest for disrupting the children's educational entertainment sector!
Many Thanks and Be Well,
Keeana + the Kidogo Team
