We just received the book and it looks amazing!

We can't wait to share it with each of you! From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for making our dream a reality.  Now we will become marketing gurus and ensure Captain Courage is by the side of all those who need him most! Have no fear; Captain Courage is here!

We can see the light!!

Greetings to all you incredibly awesome backers! 

We have entered our final 24 hours! We want to spread the word about Captain Courage as far and wide as possible in these last hours SO, (as if you haven't done enough already :)) we're asking you to tell someone else about the kickstarter.

Anyone! Your co-worker sitting next to you right now! The girl you just bumped into on the street because you were walking and trying to read this on your phone! Your mom, sister, cousin, brother from another mother! Tell them about the kickstarter and don't leave their sides until they visit and join! Then, scream "Go Captain Courage!" from the rooftops! Okay, that last part isn't mandatory ... seriously, you might fall and you'd probably be out of breath by the time you climb the ladder...

We digress. You get it. 

Let's get the word out! Thanks soooo much for all your support!

Have no fear; Captain Courage is ALMOST here!



With 15 days to spare, we have exceeded our goal and are well on our way to bring Captain Courage to those who need him most! We cannot thank you enough for your incredible generosity and support of Captain Courage.  The illustrations are being finalized and will be submitted to the publisher on June 8th.  We are working with the toy distributor and making final tweaks to the plush doll prototype.  The website is being coded and the marketing plan is complete.  We are off and running to ensure every child has someone by their side. 

May we all have the strength and courage to do what is right!



Stand up for what's right!

Hard to believe we are at 89% of our goal! Thank you so much for your generous support; we appreciate it more than you know. Zoe, our illustrator is hard at work finalizing the art for the book-it looks amazing!  We just finalized the terms with the publisher and are eager to get the finished project to them.  If all goes well, the book will be ready to ship in July.  Then the fun begins!  Please continue to spread the word over the next few weeks so we can make the final push to reach our goal-as you know it is an all or nothing deal with Kickstarter!!

Thanks again!!

Stand up for what's right,

Ricki and Paula

Thank you for your support!

We are humbled by your kindness and your generosity! We are 76% of the way to our $7500 goal to bring Captain Courage to life!

Helping children overcome their fears, one child at a time!  Thanks for spreading the word!  Here are a couple of preliminary sketches.
