As a parent, my time is super valuable in everything I choose to fit into all the minutes in the day. The time invested in my children is such a huge deal, that I often times put myself last in order for getting personal time or taking care of my own needs. If you are a parent, I am sure you can relate. Not to sound cheesy, but our children are our future scientists, our doctors, our teachers, our engineers, etc. The time you put into motivating your children, building their character, or even challenging them to grow in other ways, is worth more than anything. It is one of their basic necessities, in my mind.
My husband, author of “Oh, Sully!” is currently raising funds through a social campaign network called Kickstarter. In his first book, his moral based story addressed self acceptance and acceptance in others. With this book, Sully and His Bike, his aim is to motivate kids to never give up. His illustrations are so profoundly entertaining, and his story so emotionally connective. I just ask that you please take a look at the video in hopes that he can be funded for his new book. Even sharing the link helps more than you can understand; it gets the word out to people we have yet to connect with on a personal level. This world runs better when we help strangers, friends, family. It is our goal to share these wonderful stories with children outside of our own.
This cute new book also meets a personal/business goal of ours. Through our business Tree Swing Press (http://www.treeswingpress.com), we recently started a campaign to give back to the community; to children in need. For every book sold online, a book is donated to a child in need. This campaign is called Book-for-Book. His first donation will be in January while he is on a month-long tour visiting schools, stores, and an annual author’s event. Additionally, he is currently training for our second campaign we call Border-to-Border. In the spring, he will be running from the Canada border to the Mexico border in hopes to promote literacy. So your help allows Sully and His Bike to created, along with bigger aspirations of donating to kids, and spreading literacy.
We are hoping that your enthusiasm towards this book is contagious and your willingness to share the link helps us to meet our goals.
Please help us spread literacy.
