About this project

Welcome To The Blessed Buddies Kickstarter Project!

Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6

Tell me about Blessed Buddies?

Blessed Buddies is a cartoon ministry spreading faith, hope, and love to kids. The foundation of the brand is built on biblical principles and centered around a wholesome value system. The Blessed Buddies provide family entertainment  safe for the younger minds. Through amazing stories wrapped with positive themes the Blessed Buddies entertain children while at the same time teaching them valuable life lessons. The diverse characters all radiate a spirit of love and playfulness which allows kids to bond with them quickly. They vividly tap into children's imagination taking them to a safe wonderful world of fun and happiness. 

What’s our Kickstarter Project Objective?

This project is to raise the money needed to produce and manufacture the first Blessed Buddies book in the Blessed Buddies book series entitled "Lil Willie's Mountain". Our first goal is to raise $20,000. You can help us make an worldwide impact by booking you donation today!

What is the Blessed Buddies book “Lil’ Willie’s Mountain” about?

This book tells the amazing inspirational story of the Blessed Buddies character Lil Willie overcoming a tragic accident that leaves him in a wheelchair. We teach kids through this heartfelt story that it’s not the “why” things happen, but rather “how” you respond to the things that do. Lil’ Willie’s Mountain will plant positive seeds of faith teaching children to persevere and to never give up. This book paints a loving picture of physically challenged children showing them as actually having tremendous capabilities and how they can be amazing friends. This story will give children, going through difficult times, hope and encouragement. 

What reading level is this book written for?

The book is written at the intermediate reading level for kids between the ages of 7-10. Parents can also read it to the younger ones so they too can experience the love and joy of the Blessed Buddies. There's lots of fun and cool pictures that will tap into children's imagination and help bring the story visually alive. There's something for the whole family to enjoy in this book!

How can I help Blessed Buddies make the most impact?

We have set up several rewards dedicated to 12 amazing hospitals that are directly helping children in a major way. By selecting these rewards levels we will donate Blessed Buddies books and merchandise in the name of your choice (or anonymously if desired) to these organizations. These books  will go directly to children battling cancer, sickness, and  major disabilities. We believe the Blessed Buddies will inspire, uplift, and encourage the children during their recovery.  The best medicine in the world is faith, hope, and love and that's what the Blessed Buddies are all about! THE MORE PLEDGES WE CAN GET AT THESE LEVELS THE MORE CHILDREN WE WILL BE ABLE TO REACH AND IMPACT. MANY OF THESE HOSPITALS HAVE HUNDREDS OF NEW PATIENTS EACH WEEK AND IT'S OUR GOAL TO BE ABLE TO REACH EACH AND EVERYONE OF THEM LEAVING NO CHILD OUT! 

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13

Why should you pledge to the Blessed Buddies Book Project?

By pledging to the Blessed Buddies book project you are investing in the wonderful children who will inherit the world of tomorrow. We believe the change we want to see in the future starts with what we teach our kids today. This is not just a book project; it’s giving children hope, a better future, and a tomorrow with no limits. Your pledge will help us bring the Blessed Buddies to life and put a smile on the faces of children all over the world. We believe the Blessed Buddies will truly make the world a better place by giving children a strong morale foundation to build their lives on.

How can I donate Blessed Buddies books locally?

We have also added some reward levels where you can donate the books to your own church, local hospital, youth group, scout team, or school.

  • Production of the books 
  • Shipping costs

What else can I do to help the Blessed Buddies?

We need as many people as possible to help us get the word out about this project. The more money we raise, the more impact we can make. It would be a huge blessing to us if you would post this on your social networks, spread the word at your church, and tell everyone you know! This will help us create momentum for the Blessed Buddies movement!

Future Projects for the Blessed Buddies?

The Blessed Factory (Creators of the Blessed Buddies) has already set in motion plans to launch the Blessed Buddies video game app, cartoon TV show, and the Blessed Buddies major motion picture trilogy. We believe we can make a huge difference in children's lives through these outlets. We also plan to use kickstarter to raise the funds needed to produce these awesome projects. We have big plans for Blessed Buddies and with your help we can make them all happen!

Risks and challenges

We are passionate and completely dedicated to fulfilling the Blessed Buddies mission to reach, teach, inspire, encourage, and to positively impact kids all over the world. This is more than just a product. To us this is a GOD given purpose and a divine assignment.This is a big project, but we believe all things are possible with GOD. We have set a timeline for delivery of the book for August 2015. We are realistic and know that sometimes things do arise causing delays to occur. Our goal is to make an effective product that kids will embrace, enjoy, and that will truly make a positive difference in their lives. We will not sacrifice the quality of the product for a timely delivery, but we will personally sacrifice and give our all to produce the best book possible as fast as we can. We will show up every day doing our part and let GOD handle the miracles. We will keep you up to date through kickstarter letting you know of the status and progress being made.
