About

 Ozzie the Miracle Stray - Buy a book to help homeless dogs!

A powerful story of hope.

Ozzie the Miracle Stray is a children’s book, based on the real-life rescue of a street dog by an Australian couple on their honeymoon in Thailand. Homeless and disabled, Ozzie travels from Thailand to the USA looking for a home, and finally on to Australia.  

Ozzie the Miracle Stray is the first title in a stunning rescue series by Guardian Books. Every book sold helps pay for mass spay / neuter, microchipping and immunisation programs on Ozzie's Island. If the target is reached, we guarantee a minimum 100 dogs will be given lifesaving treatment - there are thousands of street dogs on the island, desperately waiting for this medical attention.

 The book has been written, edited and illustrations are currently underway.

"It takes an army of Guardians to save a single animal. We want to publish a book which teaches children kindness is magic, while providing hands on rescue and medical work.” Nicole Marchment

If successfully funded, the book will be published in time to be gifted as a beautiful Christmas gift! Medical treatments for the homeless dogs will commence the day the target is reached - this means spay / neuter, immunisations, a name and microchip for 100+ dogs.

Help spread the message, kindness is magic.

Disclaimer: As per Kickstarter rules, no proceeds raised via Kickstarter will be directly donated to the charitable effort associated with Guardian Books. However a percentage of funds raised from sales of the book after the campaign is completed, will be used for charitable purposes in the spay / neuter, microchipping and immunisation of dogs.

Risks and challenges

Actual illustrations may differ to those shown on Kickstarter.

1,000 books are required to be pre-sold to reach the target for print. All books will be printed in Australia and delivered globally in time for Christmas (aiming for November 2019 or earlier).

POSTAGE
Unfortunately Kickstarter does not have a function for multiple book purchases in one order, however there is a work around. For example, to buy 3 books, simply pledge $90 ($22 + $8 = $30 times by the number of copies). If you are buying as gifts, address details can be provided after the target is reached and I will send it ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD.

Books will be sent separately in Large Letter Post bags at a cost of $8 (globally). If I manage to combine postage for multiple orders at Aus Post, please rest assured any excess postage funds will be used to assist the dogs in Koh Chang.

We aim to produce a very high quality book with hardcover, the current dimensions of the book design are 21.0cm x 21.0cm with a minimum of 150gsm internal pages.
