The book runs 38 pages, it’s going to have perfect binding, hard cover and will be 8 x 10 inches, portrait size. This book is aimed at an audience of children aged 6 and up and adults of all ages.    

Why this book?

As a Peruvian female living in Canada, I wrote and illustrated Be Kind to Every Kind because I saw a need for a social justice kid’s book that talks about our interconnection with other living beings. At a time when discrimination and its terrible consequences are highlighted in the media, my goal for this book is to nurture the kindness inherent in children and to inspire them to bring about change for a more just world. Be Kind to Every Kind is authentic, educational, personal, factual, empowering and hopeful! This book is one of a kind!

Did you know? 

Every time someone buys a book, 5% of the sale goes towards Food Empowerment Project, a non-profit organization that seeks to create a more just and sustainable world by recognizing the power of one’s food choices. To learn more, please visit: www.foodispower.org

Risks and challenges

The text and illustrations have been completed and accepted by Mascot Books, a vanity press based in Virginia, USA.
The first run of 1,000 copies is $3,800 USD.
We are raising $5,000 CAD which is approximately $4,000 USD to only cover the cost of printing. Kickstarter takes 10% (service and credit card fees = $500 CAD), and the remaining $500 CAD will hopefully cover some shipping costs.
Our finding goal of $5,000 CAD is a conservative estimate as we really hope to go far and beyond to donate some of the proceeds to F.E.P. (perks are not included).
There aren’t any risks involved as the company we work with is reputable and up to industry standards, therefore we have set realistic shipping dates.

Thank you SO MUCH for taking the time to look at our project!

Love,

Maritza Oliver
