Feeling lost and don't know what all of this is about?

The Importance of Al Ghazali
Al Ghazali was one of the greatest scholars and philosophers that lived. His works have influenced generations of people for hundreds of years across the entire world.
For more about Al Ghazali, click here, . 

The Need for RainDrop
However, Al Ghazali's works are intimidating to the layperson. For example, Revival of the Religious Sciences contains a few thousand pages and his abridged version The Alchemy of Happiness in Persian about one thousand pages. 

RainDrop will summarize Ghazali's works into short, simple, animated videos. 

The aim of RainDrop is to spread the wisdom and knowledge from one of the most famous scholars of Islam around the world. RainDrop's goal is to spread the message of peace to a global audience and to help people achieve spiritual happiness through knowledge of the Divine. 

The Costs
We have completed the Pilot at a cost of $1,150. This included $150 for the professional voiceover, $800 for the professional animation, $200 for the editing.

The money we will raise will go entirely to creating new videos. For example, 10 videos will cost $11,500. 

Management
The project will be executed mostly by third parties. I have developed the process in a way that allows scalability very quickly. The only thing that needs to be done is select what book will be turned into a video - then it is sent to the editor, then the voiceover artist, and finally the animator. The entire process takes about 3-4 weeks per video.

I will personally manage the entire process. My background includes an MBA from Harvard Business School as well experience launching two start ups. 

Impact
Ghazali has compiled an incredibly amount of knowledge and wisdom in his books; this should be shared with the general public in a way that is simple, visual, and brief.
