A MS Native's Childhood Sparks Idea for Animated Bible Stories GospelKids.TV

We've all heard the saying made famous from the movie Field of Dreams "If you build it they will come." For writer and visionary Will J. Sims that has been true in the past, and this year he hopes to show its right again.

The writer of the Emmy award-winning movie, "Brotherly Love," Sims now hopes to bring to life a new animated Christian series called GospelKids.tv---and you are able to be a part of it! Using the popular crowd-sourcing site Kickstarter, Sims shares not just the vision for the series but some of the individuals who are working to make it a success.

The series is created, written, and co-produced by Sims and inspired by his life as a child and his relationship with his grandmother (Big Mama) in Brandon, Mississippi. "When my kids were growing up I was searching for good religious material to introduce them to the Bible," he says about the idea for the project. "What I found out was that there was a tremendous void in this type of material for children of color." His video series is intended to introduce children to the message of Jesus Christ in a way that is clearly communicated and easily understood, by way of a grandmother's narration.

When you visit the Kickstarter page you will be able to watch a video that takes you into not just the idea for the project but what your support will be able to bring to it. Joining Sims are Mark Young (Animation Producer), advisers like Bishop Ronnie Crudup, Kamel King of Terminal Recording Studios, Doug Williams of the popular Williams Brothers and more!

Deadline for the funding project is May 31st, and donations as little as $1 will go a long way in helping see this amazing resource come to life. Donations of $5 and more will also receive special gifts from Sims as a way of further showing appreciation for your support.

This is your chance to help build something that could impact the lives of young people around the world. All it takes is the first step.
