What is The Adventures of Peacebe and the Heartwatch?
Peacebe is a little boy who has a magical watch, named Heartwatch. Heartwatch can make Peacebe do some pretty awesome tricks! Together they take kids on exciting adventures, while teaching them the importance of being kids with character. Our character education series is the first of hopefully many more to come! This series blends the adventures kids love, with the morals parents and teachers want to instill.
What will we be doing with the funding?
If we meet our goal of $10,000 we will use that money to print a small batch of the first series.
If we exceed our goal..(with YOUR help we CAN do this....fingers crossed:))...there is so much we will do with the additional funds. We will use it to go towards printing a bigger batch of books ($25,000) creating the final version of the website ($5,000) having a back to school launch ($10,000), ordering more merchandise ($5,000), and completing a pilot cartoon episode ($5,000).We plan on making our brand go world-wide, so every penny will go towards doing just that. We will keep you posted every step of the way!

Who are we?
Team Peacebe was officially created in April 2012. Leneen Faith had the idea since 2005, but in the summer of 2010 she wrote the entire first series. Her brother, David Campbell, started the illustrations that summer. However, the project required a lot more work than either anticipated. In 2012 their other brother, Paul Campbell, decided to join the team and invested in the project which has helped to speed up the process. However, all funds have been exhausted, which is why we are using Kickstarter to raise more money to launch our project!
The Author-Leneen Faith
Leneen is an optimist who would love to see Peacebe and the Heartwatch positively impact millions of children one day. She has a huge passion for character education, and wants to inspire kids to get excited about doing the right thing. She hopes everyone is as excited about the first series, as she is.
The Illustrator-David Campbell
David received his Bachelor’s of Arts from the University of Florida in Graphic Design.He is extremely talented and has fallen in love with the Peacebe Project. He believes in the vision for Peacebe, and spends countless hours ensuring that the illustrations are captivating, eye-catching, and appealing to all children. He single-handedly created all of the characters, objects, settings, and backgrounds for the Peacebe World, and will continue to be hands on with all of the branding for Peacebe Mania.

Risks and challenges
Our goal is to have all 8 books printed by April 2014. Thankfully, we have secured a reputable printer. With that being said sometimes things happen. One possible risk is the delay in the completion of the illustrations. However, we have 2 oversea illustrators, and there are only 2 more books to finish. The entire background, and all of the characters for those books are already created, so it's just a matter of placing things where they need to go, and fine-tuning the overall look. It is unlikely that a delay will occur. However, if there is a delay in the completion of the books, it would only be a few weeks, 1 month max. We work diligently everyday to ensure we meet our April 2014 print deadline, and with your generous support we can make this dream come true!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
