As a mother daughter team, we have collaborated on many different occasions to create something beautiful. This is the culmination of many years of dreaming about a little girl full of grace and grit who might bring a strong, hopeful message of hope, love, generosity and healing to a culture that is in such dyer need of it. Gracie Brave is a book series that begins with this little lady who will take you on numerous adventures to all sorts of destinations near and far. Gracie makes unlikely friendships along the way and affirms the story of people everywhere who have differences, disabilities, dysfunction and other often unseen challenges that cause them to feel alone.
Gracie herself struggles with childhood depression, but with a team of support and the love of her family nothing is going to stop her. This book is a helpful resource for parents and caregivers because it opens up conversations with children who may be going through a period of low mood or confusing feelings they don’t understand. We can encourage them to talk with a safe adult about how they feel and make sense of their experience. This story is our story of a mother and daughter working to navigate life with clinical depression since the age of five. It is our hope that children and adults will identify with Gracie and begin the process of breaking the silence that mental illness often reinforces.
More than just a book series, Gracie is a movement about BRAVERY. It is about choosing the road that leads to freedom and life against ALL odds. Gracie is transported by her red, heart balloon and accompanied by her constant companion, Ellie the elephant who helps her to feel safe when she is away from her home and Mom. We all deserve the chance to be Brave and we at Gracie Brave know that the call to Bravery is alive and well......Let's chase after it and achieve the things we never thought that we could do on our own. Gracie Brave is how we have personally responded at this time to a brave call! Will you help us? Will you join our team?
Risks and challenges
Because this project involves a book, we can limit risks by printing fewer copies.
We have researched our startup costs well and feel we have things under control. But if something unforeseen happens, we have assembled a great team filled with talented people who will work together to resolve any problems.
We are listing lenient delivery dates for rewards based on the research we've already done on their turn around time for production/delivery. That way, hopefully they will be in the donors' hands earlier than they are anticipating. If any other hick-ups do arise, we will leave ongoing notifications on the "update" link.
If we exceed our goal for funds needed for Book 1 any and all additional funds will go towards the production and illustration of Book 2.
Please reach out to us @ firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
