About this project
It has been extremely satisfying to take my passion of writing from just a passionate thought inside my head to self-publishing my first children's book and musical CD. A few years ago I went to my brother, Kelvin Butler, who is an artist with a Bachelors Degree in Art and my nephew, David Butler, who is a freelance illustrator with computer imagery, and I said "hey!! I got this real creative idea to write a children's book about recycling and go through all 26 letters of the alphabet". I went to the studio and said that I wanted to create environmental songs that don't paint a picture of doom and gloom. I wanted songs that were engaging, energetic, educational, and entertaining. I then wrote" Mr. Organic Recycling From A to Z " with the help of my brother and nephew. I wrote all the ORIGINAL SONGS on the musical CD "Mr. Organic Environmental Songs For All Ages".
The book is complete and is ready to go to print. We have 100 galley proofs (advanced reading copies) printed to send out for book reviews to National Media. The pledges we receive will allow us to mail out galley proofs for book reviews and to finally get hardback first edition books printed with dust jackets. This project is in the starting blocks and ready to go, but we're going to need a KKKKKKKKKKickstarter to finally get up and running. We are going to offer some of the galley proofs as rewards. Only Kickstarters that pledge on the appropriate rewards in the pledge section will receive a galley proof; these are going to be a unique item.
The CD is 35 % complete and the goal we have set at $3,500 dollars will only get me back in the studio it won't pay for printing or distribution. This is where Kickstarter Backers are so vital. The more pledges we obtain will allow us to be on our way with more books, C D, and creating educational material for schools. We also plan on doing puppet shows and I have started writing a musical, but at present, I need backing to further with creating the character and branding of the Mr. Organic imagery.
We are offering you limited and exclusive rewards. This project can move forward with Kickstarter Backers. The backers will give this project a kickstart to finally get the book and musical CD to the public. We need your backing in a very special way. We're asking all to have a generous heart and give this project a kickstart.

ABOUT THE BOOK
Mr. Organic Recycling From A to Z is more than a children's book. This book was written to make an environmental impact. The book goes beyond recycling because it is able to connect with students and adults. After my presentations I am always asked " when will the books be available". The KICKSTARTER BACKING that is obtained on this project will allow us to do more so that we can get this book all over the world.
Early education is the key component to teaching children about the environment.The children need to be inspired and exposed at a early age. The above photo shows local school children listening as Marvin Jesse Butler read his book to the class.
ABOUT THE MUSICAL CD
I HAVE ADDED SOME SHORT VERSIONS OR SNIPPET FOR YOUR LISTENING .
The songs on the video and soundcloud have to be mixed and mastered. I have some more songs, but I will need Kickstarter backing to get back in the studio. I have been performing my music in Memphis and Nashville Tennessee and I have performed at a conference in Washington, DC. Kickstarter strong backing will allow me to distribute all over the world. My single, not yet, released, I have been singing at events entitled "WE CAN REVERSE GLOBAL WARMING" is being well received by people of all ages from a 9 year old student that said "he could dance to the song", to a 84 year young grandmother that said "she really like the song, it had here rocking". I have a background singer on the song and her name is Louisette and she has translated the hook line "WE CAN REVERSE GLOBAL WARMING" into six different languages at the end of the song. The languages are: Spanish, French, Hindi ,Arabic, Japanese, and Chinese. Now, don't that sound awesome? When I wrote this song I wanted it to be an International song. Ms Louisette has definitely been a wonderful addition to this song. This song will have a Domestic version for download only but, KICKSTARTERS will get the Domestic and International version on the EXCLUSIVE CD. KICKSTARTERS will get EXCLUSIVE bonus tracks and songs from the next up and coming CD.Your Kickstarter strong backing will allow this music to be on the way for the world to listen. The young ,not so young, and in between that includes EVERYBODY ALL OVER THE WORLD.
After speaking at a local Rotary Club in Memphis Tennessee, Karen Shea, the President Elect and program Chair along with some Rotary Club members took a picture with Marvin Butler the Author of MR. ORGANIC RECYCLING FROM A TO Z
These students from Memphis Business Academy in Memphis Tennessee took a picture with "MR. ORGANIC" at a business expo where I had an EDUCATIONAL EXHIBIT BOOTH. The principle, Dr. Clark, viewed the book and later wrote a letter of recommendation with remarks.
Dr. Clark, Principle of Memphis Business Academy: Mr. Butler has definitely created something awesome through Mr. Organic. He is a universally acceptable friend, who will lead our children to becoming Eco- friendly.
At a later date I was invited to the school to do a presentation for students in which I performed my song "Hey,hey,hey, did you recycle today". The teachers had these kind words to say:
April Bobo, Language Arts Teacher writes " Our Executives learned a wealth of information about recycling and positive methods to keep our environment clean.You had a profound impact on our Executives; they even continued to sing the cute song you taught them."
Lisa Chou, Middle School Teacher writes "Your knowledge and expertise within the environmental field opened their ears and eyes to begin the process of recycling and going green".
At a local Liberal Arts College Marvin Jesse Butler, the author of Mr. Organic Recycling From A to Z, volunteered to assist the college with a green project. The author brought his display and showed the students and teachers his book and how he was going in the school system spreading the knowledge of recycling.
Margrethe Frankle, Division of Education writes " I was very impressed with your efforts to educate young people about environmental issues".
Dr. Hedgeman, Director Career Services writes " We value community individuals making a difference in the environment and sharing it with our young people. Any thing you do for the next generation is definitely not done in vain".
ABOUT THE ARTIST AND ILLUSTRATORS
Kelvin Butler is Marvin J. Butler older brother, he has a Bachelor Degree from the Cleveland Institute Of Art in Cleveland Ohio. He will paint you an 18 x 24 original oil portrait on canvas for your family heirloom and you will have a Conte Paris Study drawing for your keeping. You may send a picture of yourself or a person of your choice, family or friend. He will sign the painting and study drawing. David Butler is my nephew who is a freelance illustrator, he assisted with the design and other duties with digital imagery. The lovely couple standing arm and arm are our parents; they are not with us anymore physically, but this picture hangs in my oldest sister home. The young man in pencil next to my parents is my grandfather. These pictures are heirlooms to our family and they will never be sold because they are priceless. Your portraits will give you the same rewarding feeling. All photos must be of good nature, nothing offensive or obscene.
During my visit to Nashville, Tennessee I performed for an event and was asked to come to the food park the next day for a 10-10-10- event and sing my songs in the park. Upon returning home I was inspired to write the 3 5 0 parts per million song (3 5 0 signifies the level scientists say is the safe upper limit of CO2 in the atmosphere. We are currently at 390 ppm). It's a song on the CD that you will love to sing along. I can perform at your event, festival, or concert with a performance track or live band.
The early childhood stage is crucial in a child's life. Children need to learn about the environment and the importance of how it can effect our world. This book creates an educational journey through the Alphabet that will educate them on how to recycle. "Mr. Organic Recycling From A to Z" will induce creative thinking, innovative ideas, and problem solving for our future world economy which will lead to reducing the amount of waste in our world.
The musical CD "Mr. Organic Environmental Songs For All Ages" is a collection of songs that use music as the universal language to connect with all people. Your backing on this Kickstarter project can greatly advance Mr. Organic in his efforts to get these messages to everyone. I want to THANK YOU and with your backing we can make a difference in the world with this project.
