Help Gabrielle launch her first children’s book

Hello all. I’ve created this go fund me so I can throw my very first book launch. Not only is it for the launch but for me to promote a much needed book to communities all over. My first book “Kwame’s Day With Dad” is about a little boy who is talking to his friend about all the possible things he will do with his dad today. My book is unique because there are very few children’s books that show black fathers, especially spending the day with their children. When I created this book I wanted to show that active black fathers are not a rarity.

This launch is not only for the book but for my publishing company as well. My publishing company “Gabbys collection” will produce books that show representation for children of color. We will create the books you want and need. 

My current launch date is July 17, 2021. I would like to thank everyone who donates and also those who even share my gofundme, I truly appreciate it. It took a lot for me to do this as I am a very prideful person and like to handle things on my own. 

Things the money will pay for
- Books (I have to buy the books to sell them) 
- Event planner 
- Promoting the book on social media 
- Website 
- Retractable banner for launch and future events 
- Label Printer 
- Caterer
