It is the goal of Adam Swartz Puppets
To entertain and educate as many people as possible.
To coordinate our efforts with as many like-minded people as possible.
To make the world a better place: safer, kinder, more understanding, more accepting, cleaner, happier, more thoughtful and creative.
That about sums it up!
