A poll taken in 2003 revealed that only 62% of 9 year olds continue to believe in santa claus. This percent has dropped 11% over the past 3 years. I remember when I was a kid, I had lots of fun believing in santa. In an effort to keep the magic alive for younger kids, the idea has been brought up to me of creating a large animated kid friendly santa website. This could kinda be like an animated online village with tons of interactive places which kids could go to. Since I do not have a lot of money to pay you guys with, I am looking for people who have free time and are willing to just help me out with this project which could boost the spirits of thousands of young kids. I will take care of paying for hosting, domains and advertisment. I beg you to please consider helping me out. I would need people who have experience in the following places.
If you think you recognize this same post, it is because I had posted it on October 27th, 04'. I had some great response but unfortunately many of the people who originally contacted me, never responded to my follow up emails. The project has still been under way. The team has been slowly decreasing, a HUGE thanks to Castlemelody, they have always been there to support our project and even donated a custom illustration which turned out totally awesome. I wish I could say that I could pay you in return, however I cant. I am just hoping that self satisfaction would be enough for you. I dont ask for much, maybe 2 hours a week to help me out. You would be assigned a certain project and you could take as much time as you need to complete that. I am really flexable. Please help me.
I think you guys are missing the point....Christmas is slowly growing away from the ancient beliefs. I also do agree that the religious aspect is also rapidly fading away. The whole reason I am creating this website is to offer kids a place to go where they can just escape what society says; have Christmas fun without someone telling them that what they are believing is not true. Is it so bad for a kid to believe in Santa? I would so absolutely not. I do understand that you guys are entitled to your opinions, but please, this is not the time or place to discuss that.
