About The Story
After a trip to Ethiopia, a ten year old boy showed me what it was like to collect water for his family. Upon returning home, watching my children swim in a neighbor's swimming pool, I thought that the boy in Ethiopia had never seen as much clean water as my kids were splashing on one another.
Illustrator Jerry Bennett & I teamed up to create the first book of the series, which was published and sold over 1,000 copies. A 10 year old in St. Joseph, Missouri read the book and began her own walk for water, raising enough money for 4 water wells around the world.
Kids get it. If you present them with a problem, they present solutions. Where adults will tell you how something will fail, children offer themselves. Offering yourself to be a solution is how the world is changed.
About The Books
- I Walk For Water
We are reprinting our first book in this series! With over 1,000 copies sold, we need to get this book back into print.This book tells the story of an African boy who daily walks to find water. To date, close to one billion people lack access to clean water. It has been presented to classrooms, church groups and children's groups to spread the message of eradicating the global water crisis soon.
- I Walk For Freedom
I Walk For Freedom follows a Syrian refugee family as they are leaving their home in Aleppo, destined for Paris. The book details the importance of family in the midst of hard times and the belief that love and good people conquer all.
- I Walk For Chocolate
We all love chocolate, but most of us do not know where and how cocoa beans are harvested. Supplying over 1/3 of the world's cocoa bean production, the Ivory Coast often uses children as workers.
This book details our love for chocolate and the process of growing, harvesting and processing cocoa beans. It also teaches young readers how to recognize the fair trade symbol and why its existence is vital to global purchasing.
We have already been planning and storyboarding our Stretch goals. Our passion for seeing kids change the world is so deep, we believe there are many more stories in this series for us to tell.
Thank you so much for your support!
Hugs and all our love,
Jerry & Lindsey
Risks and challenges
There are challenges that face every project, but we believe that there are very few risks with this project. Our production and shipment company is renowned for their work and the only delays that could be an issue would be shipping from overseas. These issues are accounted for in our estimated completion dates for each project and we do not foresee such an issue arising.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
