Nine Year Old Girl Pitches Online to Raise Funds for Her Dad!
LONDON, June 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –
Pora Ora (http://www.poraora.com), the ground breaking virtual 3D online universe
that is transforming the way that 5-12 year old children learn, has launched an online
Kickstarter campaign. Kickstarter facilitates ‘people power’ funding enabling the woman

campaign will enable its creators, Caped Koala Studios, to expand the game further with

Pora Ora’s no.1 fan, and daughter of the CEO, takes center stage in the appeal to
raise funds and proves hard to resist! If the pitched funding of $100,000 is not reached
by 28 July 2012, all the pledges are cancelled.
Pora Ora is packed with exciting and engaging games, puzzles and quests, all geared to
a global school curriculum. Children learn through their avatar whilst exploring the

exploration points to keep them healthy and happy.

educational resource in the classroom. Teachers and parents are able to control the safety
features, track the child’s progress and offer in-game rewards through the parent portal.
With the money raised through Kickstarter, Caped Koala will develop new worlds, Pora
Pals, gaming features and apps. Their stretch goals include creating a coding game and
developing the tools to enable children to create their own world. Caped Koala wants to
give all children the opportunity to access this valuable and effective game based
“Our Kickstarter campaign has the potential to fund the creative growth and expansion
of Pora Ora. The education system hasn’t changed in years. It remains a granular system
where creativity has fallen down the priority list to the extent that it is almost

revolutionize education and ensure that Pora Ora can be enjoyed by children, parents and
teachers alike. We believe that Pora Ora will become the world’s top online education and
entertainment destination for children.” Neil Gallagher, Caped Koala, CEO.
