EMPOWERING CHILDREN THROUGH STORY

Why donor dollars make a difference – well, we have a plan and you can speed up this plan and help us get the program into more children’s hands, quicker. For years, we have been running two entities concurrently – Boogie Books as the supporting publisher, and the generator of income, and Child Writes – the program and all it involves. As you can imagine, simply being involved with either one of these could very well be a full time job! We propose the following:

If we raised $5000.00, and if we are welcome at a school or within an organisation where children are in crisis (a children’s hospital or refuge) and we were there for five days with five supporting mentors involved in all facets of a books production, we could take a team of children (say 15) through the entire process of creating their own single title. We could print the title (overseas) and have a huge profit margin for the school / organisation selling the books. This same organisation could give back $5000 at the end of the project to fund the next one! There is something deliciously circular about this – paying back AND YET FORWARD! We call this the ‘5 x 5 program’ and we have recently tested the methodology at the behest of the Condamine Alliance for a book called Finnley’s Great Escape.

Your donation is sincerely appreciated, yet if you wish to wait until you can receive tax deductibility for your donation, please contact us and we will (happily!) remind you as soon as we can. If we raise more – well, we can do all sorts of things – have a tutor in a classroom for an entire project ($750 per child) - and much much more! If you are happy to proceed Do so by entering your details below.

Our three youngest children have now completed the Child Writes program and are now published authors and we wished the opportunity could have been available for our eldest. In addition to having their own ‘masterpiece’ that Grannies love, the program provided valuable lessons in long term project planning, time management, team dynamics, personal organisation and dealing with deadlines in a relaxed, non-school environment. Thank you Emma for the patience and enthusiasm you displayed throughout the journey. It has been a positive experience our children will fondly recall for the rest of their lives.
