Everyone, everywhere, loves a good story

# Shalom,

…from a little café in Tel Aviv, fresh off a week flying across South AfricaKenya, and Sierra Leone. We’re running on crushed coffee-beans and wacky Pong hacks and thinking, whoa, if this is the beginning of the story, what’s next?

We have nine days left – SHARE US (Twitter or FB), and we can make Kano with more projects, more languages, and an AMAZING robotics expansion kit.

NEW STRETCH GOAL – worldwide keyboard layouts

If we can get to **$1.5 MILLION, **we’ll localize our keyboard for the world’s three most-popular layouts, like so:

(Should we use [stickers](http://www.amazon.com/Crocodil-Graphics-Keyboard-Stickers-Protector/dp/B005WG47BU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1386683933&sr=8-1&keywords=keyboard+sticker) or [covers](http://www.amazon.com/UPPERCASE-Ultra-Clear-Keyboard-Macbook/dp/B007FL6100/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1386683944&sr=8-2&keywords=keyboard+cover)?)
# The future

If we can keep pushing toward that magic $2 million mark, dreams like Bluetooth in the keyboard and a whole new web-maker Kano level will become feasible. Wherever we end up, we can thank the stars, the robots, the Raspberry Pi, the Linux kernel – but mostly, you guys. Your story, and your kits, are in worldwide motion. Nine days to see how far we can go…

Shalom,
Kano
