My Very Silly Monster Book Drive

$1,000 of $1,500 goal

Raised by 32 people in 2 months
At My Very Silly Monster we believe all children should have the same opportunity to have access to educational books at all times. As author and illustrator of the My Very Silly Monster  children's book series I'm raising funds to be able to provide 150 of My Very Silly Monster books to Salvation Army Families of Story County in Iowa.

in 2012 I self published My Very Silly Monster  ABCs which became very popular and since then ten educational titles have been added. These titles include books about colors, shapes, numbers, and opposites. My Very Silly Monster books are fun and engaging books that children of all ages can enjoy. The books are paperback and have between 20-24 pages of full color illustrations. They have been sold all over the world and children continue to enjoy them every day. I've worked with educators and professionals in the education field to ensure quality content that is not only creative but also educational.

Raising Readers of Story County along with other sponsors such as myself are involved in a 1000 book challenge to provide books to Salvation Army Families of Story County in Iowa. This holiday I hope to make available over 150 My Very Silly Monster books to families in need.

Each book costs $7.99 plus shipping
Shipping cost for 150 books can run over $125
If the full $1500 is raised I can also include additional coloring activities books  to spark creativity in children as well.

I would like to be able to order and deliver the books to Raising Readers of Story County by December 1st, 2018 so children can have them in time for the holidays.

Thank you for taking the time to help Salvation Army Families of Story County in Iowa. Your help will bring a smile to many children this holiday not to mention a Very Silly Monster work of possibilities.
