Blotch© Postcards: Empowering People to be Themselves
Blotch creates the voice, to say and hear, that it’s okay to be different and not fit in. He supports others, to be just who they are.
Susan Barbaro and Julie Bonetti, the authors of “Energetic Invocations: A Book of Vibrational Change” and of Blotch© Postcards have been researching and studying for years and focus our writing on thought-provoking, out of the ordinary, and often ironic material, which might not be embraced by the so called “standard publishing venue.” We challenge perspectives, our own and others, and we share creative, unique and powerful stories and views that we adopt and share with our readers. Our writings are never hurtful, racist or hateful. We consider ourselves thinkers, and in many cases do not fit in. We are like you, we are not “experts.”
By starting this kickstarter campaign, we are hoping to use the resources to help us with printing and distribution of our book and Blotch© postcards.
"Energetic Invocations: A Book of Vibrational Change" blows the lid on the self-help industry and sheds new light on gurus. Others guide you to believe as they do, and you will become empowered. Although we can all learn from learning about other’s journeys, finding the path to integrate these lessons into our own journey has never been paved. Nobody can truly understand your perspective, but you. This book does not tell you what to do, how many mangoes to eat or what things to tell yourself, it creates a process for you to find that for yourself. Our own answers are within ourselves and that’s what bleeds into our beliefs, values and habits. To really make a change, you must do the work, or you will continue to spin your wheels. This book offers you the tools to support this change. It will make you think, and it will move your own energy as you work with the “Energetic Invocations” within the pages. Changing your energy, to support the change in your cells. Think it’s crazy? Think again. Science, nature and documented studies have proven the truth of that statement. “Energetic Invocations” was the basis of the Blotch© Postcards. Much of Blotch’s words are based on the writings in what has been coined “The Blue Book of Energy”. This 5.5 x 8.5 paperback book, contains 158 pages.
Blotch© Postcards were created to empower people to be different, be themselves and to create a voice to hear (and say) that it’s okay to be different and not fit in. Blotch© embraces a different kind of viewpoint for people to share with each other. Greeting cards are over-rated and seem to say the same thing, and in some respects never putting into words, exactly how one felt. Blotch© cards are raw, have double meanings and quite honestly, very funny.
They are meant to say what you want on the front, and in the back provides a perspective that brings a smile, a little laughter or break in the momentary troubles. As a postcard the giver is not bothered with much to write other than a possible “love you” or “thinking of you” or “Hang in there”. The receiver can pin up the postcard which has a cute, lovable Blotch character in the front, as a reminder that everything will be alright.
We know that when the struggle with life is overwhelming, there are resources to help those who cannot find another way. In our effort to help others struggling with their “differentness” and feel they just don’t fit in, we are contributing a portion of the net proceeds from our Blotch Postcards to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention Out of the Darkness Walks.

Risks and challenges
The immediate challenges for our campaign are very manageable. The Blotch© postcards are designed, have been copy-written, and we have arrangements for our immediate printing needs. The "Energetic Invocations: A Book of Vibrational Change" E-books and printed book are also complete and we also have satisfactory arrangements for printing and delivery concerns. Although we hope this campaign can help us in promoting Blotch’s words and can help with printing and distribution, we are currently capable of handling all the printing, delivery needs for this campaign.
At the present moment, our biggest challenge is getting the word out and helping someone who could benefit from support. Depression, suicide, stress and anxiety rates in our society have skyrocketed, and opioid use is at epidemic levels. As parents and adults in our society, we are saddened and frustrated by what statistics are showing on our college campuses, and on our streets around the country. When we researched into the current resources, we found nothing that created any impact. We did our own soul searching and came up with some things we wanted to say, which were raw, honest and truthful. Blotch© postcards cannot fix all of these troubles, but if one can get to the right person, at the right time, anything is possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
