Saying good-bye to a friend is never easy. But when that friend is going on the trip of a lifetime, it's a little easier to let go.

Remember when you were little and had a special blanket, stuffed animal or pacifier? I do. Now that I am a parent, I understand how hard it is to watch your little one let go of something that they love...

My kids sent their precious "binkies" to the Man on the Moon so he could keep them safe. They wrote a note, and we attached their words and binkies to balloons with string. After we watched the balloons float away and turn into tiny dots, we waved at the Man on the Moon that day and every day after. 

And each time I've shared this story, I've been told that this should be a children's book. I feel like now is the time. 

The first project is creating the story and illustrations for the children's book. We want to raise $1,500 to pay for the amazingly talented and gifted people working on this, each who believe in the magic of the story as well. The book will make it possible to share the story with children, parents and grandparents. And, we already have additional projects in the works to keep the story going!
