Learning to Read Has Never Been More Fun

Sarah Ford has dedicated her entire professional life to helping children with learning disabilities. Her passion has always been to empower youngsters and teach them tools to be able to navigate past their educational struggles successfully. Sarah has had extremely positive results throughout the years, but she always wanted to find a way to make her training more fun, and thus more accessible. That was the goal she set out to achieve when she approached Whole Wheat Creative earlier this year. She wanted a way to take her proven track record of successful methods and tools and make them something kids would look forward to doing. Together, we came up with Reading Bandit - an interactive iPad application geared towards teaching children (both with learning disabilities and without) how to read and write.

iOS Game Development HoustoniOS App Store

Bandit is a hilarious and encouraging cartoon raccoon who takes kids on an adventure through the alphabet. At the start of an adventure, kids select an animal avatar to represent themselves, and off they go with Bandit. Bandit takes them through each letter of the alphabet - teaching upper and lower case versions of the letter, pronunciation, how to write it using a finger and the touchscreen, and how to put sounds together to form words. Bandit will also teach kids helpful sight words to look out for when reading more complicated sentences.

Sarah, who formed Reading Bandit, LLC earlier this year to make this application, has big plans for Bandit. Later this week, Bandit and Sarah will be at the International Dyslexia Association’s Annual Reading, Literacy & Learning Conference in San Diego. Soon, the cartoon raccoon will be teaching children how to do the math and how to spell. We here at Whole Wheat Creative can’t wait to see what Bandit does next.

Living Water International's iOS & Android App helps donors stay committed.

LWI is an implementer of participatory, community-based water solutions in developing nations. In its 20-year history, LWI has completed over 10,000 community water projects in 30 countries, which provide safe, clean water to 11.5 million people every day.

Whole Wheat Creative has worked with Living Water International for over 10 years. Beginning with the design and implementation of the Living Water visual brand, which is now recognized around the world, WWC has created several generations of award-winning websites for the ministry. Living Water depends on its website to serve as its primary communication tool as well as its primary online-giving system.

The unique mobile H2O App is one of the current projects being developed by WWC for Living Water. The H20 Project is a simple but powerful campaign. Give up coffee, soda, etc. for two weeks and just drink water. Donate the money you would have spent on the drinks to help Living Water provide clean, safe water for the thirsty.

The H2O App, developed for iOS and Android, allows participants to set and track their individual campaign goals. The H2O App also gives participants the ability to establish fund-raising groups.

WWC is currently working with the talented staff at Living Water in developing the next generation of the Living Water International website and fundraising system. Both launched in 2013.
