Feel Brave! Stories to help children manage tough emotions.

£6,641

134

Hi Kickstarter!  I am trying to raise £5,000 to build a simple application that will enable all children to have access to the Feel Brave characters and stories.   I'm not just asking for your help to build an application though, I'm asking if you will help me kick start a social movement to help all children manage tough emotions and 'Feel Brave!'

The first book in the Feel Brave series called 'The Wolf is NOT Invited!' which deals with separation anxiety and how to 'make your own fun'
The first book in the Feel Brave series called 'The Wolf is NOT Invited!' which deals with separation anxiety and how to 'make your own fun'

The concept www.feelbrave.com was born four years ago and after a lot of hard work, determination, passion and pure grit, we recently signed a global publishing deal with a publisher to release a 5 book set plus a Parent/Teacher guide .   There is still a lot of hard work and investment required but this is a huge positive milestone. 

The set of five books will enable children between approximately 4 and 7 years old, to learn practical mind tools from the ground up through lovable characters and their stories. Teachers and parents will be able to support their learning from the top down with the accompanying Teacher/Parent guide book full of practical ideas and every day activities.

We want to build a basic application to support these books and the Feel Brave educational program that we are currently building and testing in schools.

Schools that would like  to integrate the Feel Brave program will have multiple login access to the application so that children can play with the characters and their poems and stories in class and teachers can use it as a teaching resource across multiple curriculum areas such as personal social emotional development, art, music and literacy - areas that we believe are critical to nurture in today's uncertain world and to help transform education.  

The application can of course also be purchased and used by children everywhere around the world who want to access the characters and experience all of their stories, poems and videos and parents can use the simple and fun daily activities with their children to support it. 

The application will constantly be updated with new content, ideas and inspiration to help children become more resilient,  self aware and motivated to reach their pure potential. 

I hope that this project excites you enough to take action to support it and be a part of what could be a wonderful journey... Thank you!  Avril.

Risks and challenges

I already have trusted suppliers for all of the merchandise rewards so the only potential delay on merchandise will be if they have a delay on getting their stock in (which is unlikely).

I already have my Application platform partner agreed who is confident on their time frame to build and launch. The only risk on delays is if Google or Apple take longer than expected to upload or unforeseen technical issues.
