  26. Rory McDonald Says:

    My wife is a Dyslexia tutor. Most kids who are dyslexic (it is not about reversed letters btw-that is dysgraphia)are also ADD, or have a form of Aspergers or Autism. So these are very tough kids to work with, but she is awesome at it.
    She and I collaborated on a project that helps kids get better self-feedback during tutoring, using a device I prototyped.
    We are doing final testing, and if all goes well, I will be using Ponoko to do production pieces so it can be available to Dyslexia tutors and teachers all over the country!

  40. Travis Eskelsen Says:

    After putting my heart and soul into preserving a 122 year old historic brothel that tells the story of a time that is past gone, my partner and I were able to get a major cable series to film an episode in our brothel. This hopefully will get us the attention needed to follow through on this project so the memories of the soiled doves can be remembered and their story of how they made a small town grow into a major city of the old west.

  41. LaTiesha Says:

    It’s snowing here in Montreal, and this woman I assume is homeless always sits on a bench in a parc next to my appartment.

    I went over to her and gave her gingerbread, a thermos with some warm tea+honey, and a bag of change I keep in my piggybank for occasions like that. Made me feel good 🙂
