Many influential WordPress projects, such as Aesop Story Engine, PodsCamp, and WordPress Post Forking, found their beginnings and/or second winds on Kickstarter, IndieGoGo, or another crowdfunding platform. A successful campaign funded by passionate supporters can make an idea into reality or bring fresh momentum for another round of development. Kayosey is the latest community project seeking funding for a good cause – the creation of the first 100% accessible theme for WordPress. The four-person team behind the Kickstarter campaign is led by WordPress developer Rafa Poveda, an organizer for WordCamp Sevilla and WordCamp Europe 2015. They aim to raise $6,770 to fund the development of the first AAA, fully-accessible and fully-responsive theme/framework for WordPress. If successfully funded, Kayosey will be released as a free theme, 100% GPL v2 or later, and will be submitted to the official WordPress Theme Directory for anyone to use. The theme’s creators believe that it has the potential to make a major impact on the overall accessibility of the web. Poveda summarized the goal for the campaign: Our goal is to create the first fully accessible, upgradeable and adaptable to all devices
