HELP SPREAD A MESSAGE OF COMPASSION AND COURAGE! I've recently published my third children's book, ONE LITTLE PIG, and am now hoping to donate as many copies as possible to children all across the world...letting them know that, no matter what their circumstances, they have the power to make an incredible difference in their schools, communities, and world. ONE LITTLE PIG is a reinvented fairy tale starring a wise, courageous pig who teaches three wayward wolves the meaning of life and the awesome ripple effect of compassion. The message is clear -- no one is too small or seemingly too "insignificant" to make a beautiful difference!
As a seasoned writer, editor, and author who has read my award-winning books in many classrooms, and also as a parent, I know first-hand the transformative power of literature. The daily habit of reading has been proven to help children with:
· Mental Stimulation
· Stress Reduction
· Vocabulary Expansion
· Memory Improvement
· Stronger Analytical Thinking Skills
· Improved Focus and Concentration
· Better Writing Skills
Even more beautifully, reading helps to foster empathy! According to an article in the Scientific American, researchers at the New School in New York City “found evidence that literary fiction improves a reader’s capacity to understand what others are thinking and feeling.” The article further argues that literary fiction can “support and teach us values about social behavior, such as the importance of understanding those who are different from ourselves.” The results of this study suggest that readers have greater emotional intelligence and empathy, meaning they can better put themselves in someone else’s shoes.
It is my commitment to you that every dollar of this campaign will be used to ensure this inspirational book reaches children in need everywhere...bringing them joy, inspiring them to use their own creativity, and encouraging them to be the change they wish to see. Specifically, your kind contributions will be used to help pay for publishing and mailing costs, as well as getting the book translated into multiple languages.
THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for any and all assistance you're kindly willing to provide -- including sharing the link to this campaign. Together, we can make an incredible difference in the lives of children everywhere!
